Vad du kommer att göra

ON THIS UNIQUE EXPERIENCE: Uncover the notorious secrets, stories & scandals of Kings Cross (Sydney's historic red-light strip) with a passionate & professional guide. Once a bourgeois neighbourhood boasting harbour-side mansions & Victorian villas, this bustling pocket of Sydney was transformed by bohemia, entertainment & modernist architecture during the roaring 1920's Jazz Age. Amidst the sparkling lights of its inter-war years, The Cross also became riddled with backstreet bordellos, sly-grog stores, razor-wielding gangs, crime-lords (and ladies), murders, mysteries & martinis. By the 1960s, the streets teamed with revellers visiting its red-light strip of neon fantasies, nightclubs & local eccentrics — dubbed in the media as 'Sin City'. Crime and corruption continued as new heavyweights such as The Boss of The Cross took the reigns, and by 1975 the neighbourhood was embroiled in one of Sydney's most scandalous cold-case murder mysteries. This tour will bring to life the local personalities & visiting Rock-Stars of the golden years, reveal the glamorous (and often quirky) Art Deco street-scapes of Potts Point, and delve into Kings Cross's controversial history of lust, luxuriance & long-nights out!
