A suburb in Sydney, New South Wales, Kings Cross is close to the central business centre and is a place that is worth visiting in a rental car. This inner-city locality of Sydney was very popular in the past for its theatres, music halls, but after the Second World War, it changed. In this area, you will find a dynamic nightclub life and it was also the setting for several films. Also, it is a great settlement for entertainment and offers quality and comfortable accommodation after collecting your car hire.

Driving Tips in Kings Cross

When driving in Kings Cross and its surroundings, make sure to avoid driving faster than the posted speed limit. You can use your overseas licence as long as it is valid. You would need to get an International Driving Permit if your licence is not written in English.

Being Sydney's red-light district is exactly what gives the place its charm. Known to locals as The Cross, Kings Cross is thriving with bars, restaurants, strip clubs and adult bookstores. Yes, it's pretty questionable, but you can't deny it's also rather interesting. This raw and gritty character that Kings Cross possesses has attracted a large number or artists. Writers, poets and journalists, for some reason, flocked to this place to feed off its upbeat bohemian atmosphere.

Nearby top attractions around Kings Cross


El Alamein Memorial Fountain

One of the greatest landmarks in KingsCross is the El Alamein Memorial Fountain. Not only does it artfully gush out water, it stands as a war memorial as well. You'll find it at the entrance of Fitzroy Gardens, right on the corner of Darlingurst Road and Macleay Street.
The fountain commemorates the Australian soldiers who fought and died during the Second World War in the two battles at El Alamein, Egypt. The fountain itself was designed by an Army veteran, Bob Woodward, and the Modernist design makes it look like a blown thistle or a dandelion. Now, would you imagine that?


No visit is complete without checking out the local art scene so for your second destination I suggest you drive off to the historic Gunnery building to find Artspace. Here you'll find the cutting-edge, experimental and mind-boggling work. Actually, you'll get five galleries and twelve studios of it.
Admission is free and all you need is a heart of gold! Steel yourself and be ready for anything. One thing's for certain. Most of the works here at Artspace will surprise you.
Elizabeth Bay House

Elizabeth Bay House used to be 'the finest house in the colony'. Blessed with a 54-acre garden and the best in Aussie colonial architecture, the Elizabeth Bay House still stands, as glorious as ever. Inside you'll find an 1839-1845 style refurnishing that depicts the life of the Macleays and gives you a clear picture of a life in Sydney in the early 19th century. The grandness of the place is pleasantly overwhelming. A feeling you must experience for yourself!
