Kings, Queens and Clubs of The Cross

Step into the sinister, sensational and sexed-up world of old Kings Cross. This unique exploration will connect contemporary visitors with the colourful characters, notorious crime stories and infamous clubs of Sydney’s historic entertainment hub. 2 hour evening tour led by Sydney Crime Historian.

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.

Kings, Queens and Clubs will include:
Dulcie Deamer: Queen of Bohemia, Abe Saffron: Boss of The Cross, Carlotta: Star of the Show, Bernie Houghton: Baron of Bourbon, Kate Leigh: Queen of Sly Grog, Roger Rogerson: King of Corruption, Juanita Nielson: Princess of Potts Point, Rosaleen Norton: Witch of Kings Cross, The Beatles, Dusty Springfield, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Mick Jagger, Nellie Melba, David Bowie, Elton John, The Pink Pussy Cat, The Pink Panther, Les Girls
The Silver Spade, The Roosevelt, The Bourbon & Beefsteak.
