Surry Hills is one of Sydney’s most vibrant suburbs. Within walking distance from some of Sydney’s major attractions as well as the CBD, it accommodates residents and tourists alike. So whether you’re visiting Surry Hills or recently relocated here, here are the first three things you should do.
Talk a stroll down Crown Street
Crown Street is the epicentre of Surry Hills. With an array of retro clothing shops, artsy bookstores, bakeries and several bars and restaurants to choose from, you can (and probably should) spend a good chunk of your day just walking down this street.
Head to Prince Alfred Park
Prince Alfred Park is conveniently located right behind Central Station and is a great place to spend a few hours on a hot and sunny day.
After a whopping $9m was spent redeveloping the park in 2013, the 7.5-hectare park includes a heated outdoor 50m pool which is open year round. There’s also a cafe, two kids playgrounds, a 1km exercise circuit for joggers, walker, bikes and prams, two basketball courts, five tennis courts, an off-leash area for dogs and custom-built barbecue and picnic areas.
With plenty of places for enjoying the sunshine, cooling down in the pool or relaxing in the shade, Prince Alfred Park is a hub of activity and is a particularly good place for families looking to entertain kids in Surry Hills.

Sydney siders love their brunch and finding the best brunch menu in the area will score you a lot of points with your new friends.
