Surry Hills is hip and trendy


A much sought after suburb for young professionals to live - especially if you're working in a creative profession. This is the area where all the young people - those in their 20's to 40's want to live. Why not. Surry Hills is hip, trendy and so posh in its own way without any ego involved. It feels like you're living in Melbourne if you happen to be fortunate enough to live in this area.

For a cool, cosy afternoon.


Surry Hills was once unsafe and rough. Now Surry Hills is a cosmopolitan brunch, dog, young people and kid loving area. There are an abundance of cafes and restaurants that cater to vegans and vegetarians, and to those who prefer their organic fare.

Community, arts and other events.

Sydney's dental hospital
