What you'll do
Gea and I want you to see Marrickville’s treasures and hope you leave loving it too. Each tour visits the best experiences Marrickville has to offer as well as a special “add-on” that can be done on some days of the week only. We’ll start by grabbing a Banh Mi (Vietnamese filled baguette) from Sydney’s finest pork roll shop. We’ll eat in a shaded local park while talking about the changes in Marrickville over time, and how it’s become the place it is today. Strolling through the shopping streets, we'll admire the street art and I'll point out the venues of the vivacious live music scene that are hard to find. We'll stop at a contemporary artist's hub and shop that showcases local art. Further on we'll stop at a Record Shop for a browse through the racks. We’ll visit a local small brewery where the passionate brewsters in the tap room will chat while they pour you some liquid gold. There’s also time for a visit to a local watering hole where it’s my shout. Special "add-on" for the Wednesday Tour: we’ll visit a Coffee Curator where we’ll learn about making great coffee and taste their brew. Special "add-on" for the Friday and Sunday Tours: we’ll visit a small Gin distillery to admire their gleaming copper still and perhaps have a G & T. I recommend allowing time after the tour to experience the amazing live music scene. I can show you what's on & where to eat and drink.
I'm a passionate traveler, foodie, cook, filmmaker and storyteller. I love exploring and finding new places. Whether overseas or in my own backyard, I look for places that are quirky and interesting. I've been everywhere in Sydney, my birth city. Marrickville is a gem because of its rich culture, music scene, restaurants, breweries, street art... I even found my doggie Gea here... she comes too! I've curated a "mixed bag" tour that let's you have a taste of the best. I would love to share it with you... just 16 minutes by train from Central station. See more on Insta: @walkthiswaytours
