Kings Cross, Sydney

1.0
#9 of 14 in Neighborhoods in Sydney
Equal parts seedy and rowdy but never dull, Kings Cross is the red-light district of Australia and remains the suburb that never sleeps. This is where you go for a late-night drink in bars and daytime brunches in trendy cafes. The area is dotted with adult nightclubs, bookshops, and strip clubs. The area has a bohemian feel and is safe to stroll around and spot famous icons, such as the El Alamein Fountain and the flashing Coca Cola neon sign. If you are looking for budget accommodations, you will find a large supply of hostels in this area. By using our Sydney road trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Kings Cross and other attractions in Sydney.

  • Come see the local market near the fountain, they sell and showcase some yummy foods and fresh produce  more »
  • During a trip to Sydney in the area lived King Kross. In this area the day as usual, there are cheap cafés where you can grab a snack, as well as a currency exchange office with a good exchange rate. At night there is always noise and a lot of young people, because a lot of nightclubs are concentrated. For those wishing to visit night clubs and bars, it is a great area.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
