If you come to Sydney you have to go to the Cross. Apparently they are trying to change the area. It looks a bit doggy in the Cross street but the surroundings are beautiful. Gorgeous terra houses with amazing verandahs. There quite a few nice cafes around the area and nice restaurants too. It's a shame that you can see... More

Personally It was hard for me to see where and what exactly this district was. It didn't really seem clear cut or distinct to me. Yes there were plenty of shops and restaurants but they all seemed to merge and blend in with the city so I left feeling vaguely confused as to what was special about this area if... More

Kings Cross has a long history although its best known to Sydneysiders and visitors as an entertainment zone. Its vaguely raunchy (not as much as it was in the 1960s and 1970s) and bits of the Cross can be a bit tawdry and even sordid. But its a perfectly safe area to visit and there is some very interesting architecture... More

Kings Cross is a totally different place during the day as compared to what happens when the sun goes down and the lights come on. It transforms itself. Experience both with caution as it has been known to be dangerous where muggings occur. During the day it is a business area but by night it has rather different businesses trading... More

You can reach Kings Cross by taking Park St. which runs right thru the park onto William St., or if visiting, take the number 4 train line to the Kings Cross station. Lots of eateries and shops, and walking a bit north vey nice tree lined streets and shady areas. Take note of the Coca Cola sign which has been... More

It is not a big area. About a few blocks in length. Just on the Kings Cross train station. Visited on a Monday evening and the place was dead. Reminded me of the 42 street area in New York in the early 90's. There are some strip shows and seedy clubs. The entrance price is high around 25 dollars. The... More

By day a typical nice suburb of Sydney, by night a place to loose yourself with the entertainment over flowing with things to see.

Kings Cross is a cool place to go and find every kind of food you would ever want to eat. The nightlife is a bit crazy.

Kings Cross is one of the train stops before Bondi Junction, I just made a brief stop at Kings Cross, I walked around the area, there are hostels, night clubs, restaurants, some residential buildings. Nothing really special to me.
