From bourgeois beginnings, The Cross became infamous for its wild nights & neon lights — evolving into a red light strip where anything was for sale and Sydney could source its sex drive.
Dubbed in the media as Sin City, it is no secret that the success of this entertainment mecca was largely built on crime and corruption. Or that murders and martinis often came hand in hand.
Together we’ll rewind the clock to explore how this glittering, golden mile of scandals and fantasies was forged. From the bohemians, razor gangs and brothel keepers of the roaring 1920s & ’30s to the pioneers of its strip clubs and all-night adult entertainment, we’ll explore the notorious golden age of Kings Cross and the colourful array of characters who left their mark on its incredible history.
