"An Exclusive Area, For a Reason"

The River End of Pakington Street is jam-packed with trendy cafes that deliver incredible food, plus boutique shops for those fashion forward. You’ll never get a bad coffee in Newtown, and in the back streets you’ll discover places like As Daisy Does for all your greenery and homewares.

Right next to the Barwon River it’s a shop little walk down to the river bank which is refreshingly beautiful in winter and a shady escape in summer. There are plenty of walks and parks to enjoy no matter what area you access the Barwon from.

It’s a tightly held area with a majority of homes owner occupied. The rental and sale prices have always held strong (and high) in these areas because of that.
