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.

  • You can see the effort put into making this area look better than it used to. There are some swank eateries and boutique shops. The main strip near the train station could get a little weird at night....  more »
  • We are the first time in Sydney, arrived in the evening so against 21: 00 we wanted to the night life like a little exploring. Arrived there were bars and clubs but unfortunately much too much heavily drunken teenagers, dirt and Bouncer who just want to get you in the dancing though. Worth a visit for us after much rumgereise in Australia.

  • A neighborhood with a somewhat infamous reputation. who cares it. St Pauli is also an attraction. It has also beautiful pages. Central to all hotspots is too much who so. Just something else see real Sydney life.
