Don't waste your time here. There are so many other better places to spend time in Sydney. The lock-out laws have made this area a ghost town and shadow of its former self.

A little bit out of the main city but full of life, with plenty of restaurants and night life. Even early evening, this is worth a stroll and finding somewhere to eat then move on somewhere for a drink afterwards. If someone's driving then there's plenty of on-street parking around as well.

Service was rude and after only two of our orders turned up was told that they would not start cooking the missed order until i went back to the bar to pay by which time i was halfway through my meal. Needles to say i did not bother we went down the road and had a much better experience

Australia has awesome transportation facilities with offers like happy sunday then you can travel the whole to whatever destination with only 2.5 AUD. There are free trips to tourist attraction spots. This station is just at the heart of the city and is accessible to and from everywhere!

We only visited during the day but we were pleasantly surprised by the amazing vibe and array of beautiful apartments in the area. There are fantastic restaurants and cafes, happy people, families, boutique shops. It is a lovely area and everybody should definitely visit.

Easily accessible by the subway. The red light district of Sydney with lots of bars and "service" personnels. There is a nice hotel at Pott's Point, a short walk down the street, and a good Thai restaurant across from the hotel.

Nothing bad but nothing exciting, just a tube station. I have visited Sydney various times and I must say the underground is very easy and much cheaper than London underground!

Around Kings Cross are many backpackers and hostels. Plenty of pubs, restaurants and food stalls. It seems to be the area where the most people stay with a backpack. As well there are plenty of travel agencies to book buses to other places or just a day trip from Sydney.
