Join us in this educational excursion and understand that: from now to the next generation, when you say the word "Newtown", it will be in the same sentence explaining to your grandkids that Newtown is a monument that will never perish.
Newtown is made up of history and art, if you want to join the gold miners of 1886, go ahead and dig up some history in one of the precincts museums. If electricity is something that gets your adrenaline moving, be careful not to get your lights shut down low by the famous female protesters that had the city dark and less productive for at least 5 -6 days. This is a very busy, subtle and friendly neighborhood all mixed up in one word.
The most talented artists in Africa are without a doubt to be found in Newtown. This is the candy store of artists as whichever one you pick is as good as the next one, and as unique as the last one. There are multiple genres from dance to music, to theatre and graffiti just to add some color to the scenery. The food breaks in Newtown are more than refreshing with a touch of ancient feels floating around the atmosphere.
