Sydney’s late-night revelry hub is east of the city center in raffish King's Cross. Restaurants, cafes, bars, and clubs throng the main thoroughfare, Darlinghurst Rd, which winds its way north to Macleay St and more-sedate Potts Point.
The focal point of Kings Cross is the gaudy neon Coca-Cola sign crowning William St, which leads east from Hyde Park. Take a walk along the area’s leafy streets, lined with double-story terrace houses fringed with lace ironwork balconies, and stop off for a coffee or refreshing drink at this vibrant area’s many cafes and pubs. If you follow Macleay St north, you’ll catch panoramic views of the harbor and Woolloomooloo; steps lead down to the water and the famous Harry’s Cafe de Wheels pie cart.
When the sun goes down, Kings Cross transforms, with adult entertainment at the fore. The area is busy and well policed, but leave your inhibitions at the door.
Kings Cross is 10 minutes away from the Sydney City Center by car. Kings Cross station is on the corner of Victoria St and Darlinghurst Rd. The station is on the Bondi Junction line, and you can catch a train from Central, Town Hall or Martin Place. Several bus services run to the Cross from Circular Quay.
