King Street, Sydney

4.4
#3 of 18 in Neighborhoods in New South Wales
Once a kangaroo-breeding ground, King Street is still the most hopping neighborhood in Sydney. After a period of rapid growth in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, the neighborhood was populated by the burgeoning middle classes and amassed a collection of buildings that contemporary residents work hard to preserve. Visit King Street for some of Sydney's most diverse nightlife, the thriving LGBT scene, and the vibrant street art that draws hundreds of young visitors every year. King Street is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Sydney Edition.

  • I loved wandering this neighborhood, exploring the menus of the eclectic restaurants, gazing into the cafes, and wandering off King Street to see the partially gentrified residential areas. Great fun.  more »
  • The commercial shops and various bars allow you to relax in the streets of the East and West of the city, the more busy on the other side is popular.
