A locals guide to Chippendale
Sitting snugly between Victoria Park and Prince Alfred Park, Chippendale maybe small on space, but its big on character, charisma and culinary delights. Wander the crooked backstreets of this hip inner-city suburb to discover its signature terrace houses, cool cafes and unique art galleries. Once a rough industrial hub centering on the former Kent Breweryt, Chippendale has more recently emerged as an exciting pocket of Sydney nightlife.
