The King Street Carnival is located in one of Sydney’s most renowned culturally- extravagant areas, the Inner West, with a majority of the action happening in Newtown and then bleeding out into surrounding suburbs including Enmore, Erskineville & St Peters. Our Outdoor stages are situated in two of the area’s most famous parks, Camperdown Memorial Rest Park & Sydney Park, with our in-venue shows taking place at the pubs, bars, shops & restaurants that line King St, Enmore Rd & Erskineville Rd. Once you are in Newtown, all venues are within five-fifteen minutes walking distance of each other!

Getting Here Locally

We are encouraging everyone living locally, or visiting, to leave your cars at home and either walk, cycle or use public transport. All venues are within five-fifteen minutes walking distance of each other, so it’s a great way to get around, admire the wonderful and weird around the streets and work off those last couple drinks 😉  Whilst traveling, please respect our suburbs and be mindful of our neighbours and community. These people are a part of what make the Inner West so special and we need to cherish them 🙏
