Kings Cross, Sydney
(1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Kings Cross and other attractions that appeal to you using our Sydney trip itinerary planner.

  • A happening place at night. Wonderful selection of eateries. Felt totally safe exploring. A seedy side but not threatening. Some interesting characters. Great people watching. 
  • seems to have lost it's vibrancy or something, now quite rundown and scruffy, the redeeming feature is the fountain and some sculpture 
  • I liked the atmosphere here in Kings cross, nice people from all over the world with friendly attitude
