Walking History Tour in Potts Point & Kings Cross

Walking History Tour in Potts Point & Kings Cross

Explore the eclectic sights & stories that made Kings Cross & Potts Point an international playground for entertainment, bohemia & crime with our new Walking History Tour.

From its bourgeois beginnings, The Cross soon became infamous for its wild nights & neon lights — evolving into a strip where murders & martinis often came hand in hand; much to the profit of its local Crime-Lords & Ladies. A place that Sydney grew to bear “with a mixture of disapproval and delight” (The Glittering Mile, 1964). Delving into the local stories, structures & somebodies of The Cross, this tour unpacks the unique blend of sin, sophistication, creativity & crime that have marked its many years in the spotlight! 

WHEN: Monday, Thursday and Sunday, from 11 am to 1 pm (please arrive 10 min before to start on time).

WHAT: 2-hour small group walking tour (max 10 guests)

WHERE: Meet your guide inside the Springfield lodge lobby, 9 Springfield Avenue, Potts Point. We’ll then explore the back-streets, premier views and broad leafy avenues of Kings Cross & Potts Point.
