Colloquially called The Cross.

Kings Cross is known as red light area and the drugs capital of Australia. Still it is a richly vibrant part of the city. The number of small trendy cafes and respectable businesses are growing, off-setting the plethora of strip clubs, topless waitress bars, adult bookstores, and seedy nightclubs.

Kings Cross was at one time well known for its musical halls and grand theaters. Although today it is still dominated by less desirable establishments, it is slowly evolving to its former dignified days. Visit The Cross in the daytime to see the historic attractions there. Go back at night to enjoy the lively crowds and bright lights.
