Old meets new in Lilyfield and Rozelle, an unpretentious yet aptly stylish suburb in Sydney's inner west. Heritage, vintage, and ageless, Lilyfield and Rozelle embrace the adage, "Opposites attract." Petite cafes look out onto wide streets and industrial facades surround residential terrace homes and cottages. Here, hand-sewn clothes and hand-printed stationery grace the racks and tables underneath outdoor market tents while casual beer drinkers turn the sound of ordering small-batch brews into new forms of vocal poetry.See 51 places to stay Save this neighborhood
