Leafy Bourke Street is at the heart of Surry Hills — a funky, cosmopolitan hotbed for aesthetes and the design devout. A straight shot from Central Station, it’s a bit less frequented than better-known Crown Street, full of eclectic shopfronts and creative types pounding laptops while sipping flat whites. Bakeries, galleries and offices tentacle off into graffitied residential alleys and community-run missions, the suburb’s spirit etched in the terrace-shaped shadows of its industrial past.
