With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy? — Oscar Wilde
Insert “Darlinghurst” into the google engine and it will provide the following response:
“Inner-city Darlinghurst is a funky, high-energy area with cafes, sleek multicultural restaurants and intimate cocktail bars.”
Do you think this quote does Darlinghurst justice? The short answer is no. I believe our Darlo encapsulates Oscar Wilde’s thoughts and more. Where else could you find an old courthouse, National Art School, record store and Film Club all within one kilometre of each other?! This inner-city suburb is an eclectic community that many of us call home.
Darlo has been my home for almost two years now, and before that I lived in its sister suburb: Paddington. I believe dear Darlinghurst should be the subject of an official diary. So, as the self-proclaimed “girl” of the suburb I have decided to share with you my weekly experiences and thoughts.
If there is anything you would like me to cover in my diary entries please let me know.
xoxo darlo girl
