I lived for some time in Potts Point, near Kings Cross. During the week, it was reasonnably safe in the evening. But on friday and saturday evening, it was definitely best to avoid : there were drunks and groups of bikers.
I was born in Manila, now live and work here in New Jersey. I consider Australia as my second home because of two reasons, Kings Cross and Bondi Beach. Kings Cross is pure kindergarten compared to newark, nj as far as crime is concerned . There are cops ,uniformed and undercover almost everywhere specially at night. Enjoy your ice cold beer while in kings cross and nobody will bother you...vice versa... as long as you dont bother anybody.
Kings Cross has cleaned up a lot - and i've been there a couple of times
clubbing. Just be aware, like you would in any other place, that your drinks can be spiked.
I've never usually worried about this - but have always never left
my glass and carried it around with my hand around the top so
nothing could be slipped in. Unfortunatly one night someone put
something in my best friend's drink - we didn't realise what had happened
at the time because she just said she was feeling tired and wanted to go home.
We didn't know till the next day when she said she was shaking and feeling
So my advice - take care - anywhere in the world - I decided to post this advice
here because that's where we had the encounter.
Kings Cross is the place to be for a gang rape experience by maori bouncers and prostitues whilst your partner gets beaten up out the back. I guess you could say we were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
