  • Keep walking past Oxford Street and you will find yourself in the heart of the charming Surry Hills neighborhood. Lots of great restaurants, pubs, and cafes, plus some community centers.  more »
  • There are quite a wide long road, the restaurants in the middle of the street are quite concentrated, but in the south there are more residential areas.
