From charity shops, outlet stores (really good ones, too!!), ethnic restaurants, coffee places, there is a little something for everyone on Smith street.. Plus, all kinds of diverse people. Check it out and don't miss the Keith Haring Mural on Johnston street..

A truly eclectic street, with something for everyone - from the hipsters, to the yuppies, to the teeny boppers and the googly-eyed tourists. Lots of interesting brik and brak shops, as well as top notch (even hatted) restaurants. Worth a googly-eying adventure.

Always something cool happening here - do it by foot from one end to the other. Try Johnston St to Gertrude St via Smith St - pretty ace!
