Newtown to Tramsheds

This is a walk through three  fascinating inner-city suburbs, Newtown, Camperdown and Forest Lodge.
On the northern side of King Street is Newtown and where it intersects with Enmore Road is Australia Street. Terrace houses line the street, and  here you will pass Camperdown Memorial Park. At the corner of Eton Road is one of the few remaining corner shops. Further along the street, cross Camperdown Park to Camperdown Commons. It was a disused lawn bowls club that has been transformed into community gardens, a community space, restaurant and a children's play area.
Continue down Mallett Street, cross Great Western Highway and  Pyrmont Bridge Road into Booth Street. Turn right into Wigram Road. Take a left into Rock and Glen lanes, then right into Toxteth Road. At Maxwell Road turn left and head towards Tramsheds Harold Park.
The Rozelle Tramway Depot, originally built in 1904, has been beautifully restored. It  has cafes, restaurants, a  medical centre, supermarket, hairdresser and boutique shops all housed  under the one roof.
The walk is approximately 3 kilometres
If you feel energetic you can walk an extra 5 kilometres to Darling Harbour and the city along the foreshore from Blackwattle Bay, past the Fish Markets, Jones and Pyrmont Bays to Darling Harbour. There is also a light rail line that runs from Jubilee Park west to Dulwich Hill, or east to Central Station.
