What you’ll do
On this family-friendly experience, you’ll discover some of Newtown’s best street art, while any kids will be 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 have a quick play at the nearby playground.
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!
