Marrickville is a fascinating and quirky place. Occasionally grungy, with hidden treasures that can be hard to find.

Not your typical Sydney neighborhood and vastly different from tourist haunts, you’ll find Marrickville full of vibrant life. With many interesting places to explore it is one of the most unusual places to visit in Sydney.

A thriving hub of restaurants, breweries, art and live music, just 16 mins from Central Station by train.

Caite and her doggie co-host Gea will let you dip into a mixed bag of the best of Marrickville.

You'll learn about its history, see the Vietnamese and Greek influences, see prize winning architecture, try some craft beer at a local brewery and enjoy art in the streets.

We’ll end the tour at a small Gin distillery to admire their gleaming copper stills and if you wish, enjoy a gin and tonic, a tasting of their gins or one of their cocktails. Cool, eclectic and entertaining, this unusual place in Sydney is a great place to visit.

I recommend allowing time after the tour to experience the amazing live music scene in Marrickville. I can give you inside information about the live music playing that night if you want to explore further after the tour.

We will be walking approx 3.5 kms/2 miles on level, paved footpaths. There are lots of stops and the pace is an enjoyable stroll. Bring a bag if you want to buy things from the places we visit.
