Aussie Chinatown – stories, snacks and secrets food tour

Dixon Street, Haymarket NSW 2000

Sundays, 11:30am to 1:30pm Sunday 13 March to Sunday 18 December


Adult: $60Child: $45

Sydney's Chinatown is full of secrets and excellent restaurants, and on this experience, you're going to see and taste a bit of everything!

Your tour starts outside Paddy's Markets and the start of Dixon St mall. You'll get a run-down on Chinatown's early history and development, before heading off to explore the neighbourhood. 

This tour has a strong focus on uncovering Sydney's long connection with China, and the contributions Chinese-Australians have made to the community. You'll learn more in this 2-hour tour about Australia's Chinese community than you could possibly imagine, and "pub trivia" style games will keep it interactive and fun.

Along the way, you'll sample a range of snacks from some of Chinatown's best restaurants, with a minimum of 4 food stops included. All snacks are street foods that represent different parts of China and are designed to be eaten on the move. 

Mouth-watering food, interesting stories and a great way to support local businesses - what are you waiting for?

  • 2 hour guided activity

  • 4 to 5 food stops with all food included

  • Our personal map and guide to Chinatown's best restaurants
