The street’s history can be traced back to the early 20th century when an electric tram service opened the street to great development even past its closure in the late 50s. The street was also home to what was once the city’s largest maternity hospital in 1893 – Crown Street Women’s Hospital. Presently, the site where the hospital once stood has now been developed for residential and commercial use.

Today, the street boasts of charming cafes, beautiful boutiques and bustling bars that make it one of the most vibrant sections of Surry Hills. This is also a popular location for brunch, and it is no surprise that Crown Street gets busy mid-morning on Saturday and Sunday. Indulge in ricotta hotcakes at Bill’s or walk a little further down to enjoy pastries at the Bourke Street Bakery. If you love sweet and savoury, you will enjoy the dining experience at Four Ate Five.

If you are looking for fine dining options, sample Japanese cuisine at Toko or opt for contemporary cuisine with an Australian touch at 4Fourteen. If you are feeling thirsty, The Clock is a large pub with whiskey and wine rooms for a wholesome experience. The Commons offers a more intimate setting complete with the perfect mood lighting.

In addition to wining and dining, Crown Street is also a popular destination for the savvy shopper. Visit the Fashion Markets at The Winery and get stylish options to suit your preferences. There are also vintage stores on location if you love to get an old treasure or are looking for souvenirs to take home with you.

Experience the true essence and charm of Crown Street as you wander and browse the stalls. There are plenty of accommodation options nearby too, so make the most of your stay in Surry Hills.
