Surry Hills Sydney NSW 2010
Surry Hills is an inner-city suburb to the south-east of the CBD and east of Central railway station. It is separated from Darlinghurst to the north by Oxford Street, from Paddington to the west by South Dowling Street, and Redfern to the south by Cleveland Street. The area has terrace houses, and many old industrial warehouses have been converted into modern units as the area has become gentrified. Light industrial areas remain in the suburb, notably fashion wholesaling and manufacturing.
Oxford Street around Surry Hills and Darlinghurst is known for its gay-friendly shops and entertainment venues, and increasingly as a general nightclub precinct.
Crown Street, which runs north to south through the suburb, has boutique fashion and design shops, as well as cafes and restaurants. At the southern end of Crown Street, towards Cleveland Street and Redfern, is a shopping area with a small shopping complex, grocery stores and newsagents, and a medical centre.
