- Be thrilled and chilled by Sydney’s infamous red light district
- Bask in vibrance of Sydney’s richest social and cultural area
- Enjoy a nightcap at Kings Cross Bar
Spend two hours wrapped in tales of sly grog, organized crime, and crooked cops. Experience the mystery and allure World War II servicemen could not resist, find the inspiration which enchanted writers and artists and shiver at the mere mention of the fearsome razor gang.
For many years, the once upmarket area was a hotbed of prostitution, gambling, drugs and crime. It was also the ‘turf’ of Mr. Sin or the boss of the Cross, Abe Saffron, a nightclub owner, property developer and alleged mobster, who was convicted of tax evasion. Many say he was behind the disappearance a journalist in the 70s.
Your walking tour of Syndey’s richest social and cultural area will showcase the culture and heritage of Australia. When viewing the beautifully preserved examples of Australian colonial architecture, it’s almost hard to believe Kings Cross was as seedy as they say.
And what good would a walking tour be if you did not meet the locals? Swap impressions, stories, scandal, myth and lore with locals over a nightcap at Kings Cross Bar.
