On this family-friendly experience, you’ll discover some of Newtown’s best street art, while the kids are kept entertained with delicious ice cream samples from local businesses.

Starting in a park close to Newtown’s main street, your host will give a brief introduction to what types of street art there are, and the stories they tell. You’ll then set off on a 5-minute walk past beautiful old houses to your first ice cream stop. To start your ice cream adventure, we’re transporting you to Italy, with a scoop of super creamy gelato. We cater for all dietary requirements – please let us know if you have any when booking.

You’ll then explore the backstreets of Newtown with your guide weaving in entertaining stories behind the colourful street art. A second dessert stop is provided near a park, with a gourmet take on an Aussie classic. You’ll have a short break, and kids can draw their own street art (pencils & paper provided) or play.

Continuing your street art journey, you’ll re-join the main road, with a few more pieces of art to discover before finishing with another scoop of ice cream – this time, we’re heading to Turkey. Anyone with a sweet tooth is going to love this place!

This is where your experience ends, but your host can recommend one more ice cream stop if you’re still hungry!

What we provide:
  • 2 hour guided activity (approx. 1.5 km covered)

  • 2 ice cream servings (a single scoop at 2 different locations)

  • 1 other small dessert serving

  • Option of coffee or tea for parents/adults at 1 of the food stops

  • Coloured pencils and paper for children to draw their own street art
