Step into the sinister, sensational and sexed-up world of old Kings Cross on this history walking tour. This unique exploration will connect contemporary visitors with the colourful characters, notorious crime stories and infamous clubs of Sydney’s historic entertainment hub.

Over the course of the 20th century, Kings Cross secured its scandalous status as a late-night playground driven by sex, drugs and rock’n’roll. This sunset stroll will re-imagine the glamour, gangsters and go-go bars that left their mark on Sydney’s Golden Mile.

Our adventure will awaken the allure of art deco and the glow of neon lights as we bring to life the incredible identities, icons and institutions that kept Kings Cross alight with action.
