The old town in the Sydney suburb of Sydney’s CBD has become a hot spot for camping and tents, with many families taking to the site for days at a time.
“I’ve never been to Sydney before, but the Old Town is so different from the rest of the city,” said one woman who had set up her tent in the garden area.
“There’s no privacy,” she added. “
But there’s also more people in there, and more dogs.”
“There’s no privacy,” she added.
Some families set up their tents on the ground in the Old Park Lawn, a popular gathering spot.
“We have lots of kids here, and they’re pretty chill,” said a mother.
The city’s police force have been working on reducing noise pollution from tents and the campers have welcomed the change.
But with a growing number of campers, the issue has been controversial and has been called into question.
