"Kings Cross" Kings Cross Tip by Mez77

Kings Cross, Sydney: 18 reviews and 20 photos

King's Cross is a red light district and has all the well known sites that you find in these types of areas. Because of the tourism industry however it has started attracting a different crowd and now has some trendy cafes.

The Cross is most sleazy at night, when the bright lights come on and the action hots up. During the day it can look a lot less threatening.

Visitors to the area should be careful, especially at night, as people do get mugged here. Don't stare, no matter how strange the sight, as it might get you into trouble. Also, be careful whilst taking photos, you should ask first.
