King Street

King Street

Newtown, Erskineville, Camperdown
and St Peters

With its close proximity to the city centre and long held reputation for drawing the city's fringe, bohemian and alternative crowd, this village offers business opportunities in retail, hospitality and entertainment.

As the first suburban shopping centre outside the city centre, King Street is lined with hundreds of stores, cafés and restaurants.

A thriving theatre, music and entertainment scene contributes to drive foot traffic through the village, maintaining the precinct's reputation as an iconic cultural hub.

Leafy Erskineville has a village atmosphere and is fast gaining a reputation for its eclectic café and bar scene.

Silent chimneys mark the now-defunct brickworks at St Peters. Although still quite industrial, the small inner-western suburb maintains a strong community focus.

Incorporating the University of Sydney and the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital (RPA), health, higher education and research are the biggest employers within the area.
