However, definitely the best part of Kings Cross is Victoria Street – a handsome, quiet avenue with huge old trees that form a green archway along its length.
Magnificent turn of the century buildings line the street with splendid restaurants and cute little cafes that invite you to sit down for a snack, a drink, or a
delicious but affordable meal. Local residents walk past in the morning to the train station and home at night. School kids in their uniforms pass them on their way to and from St Vincent’s – a fine old school at the northern end of Victoria Street.
And here is where we would like to welcome you.
Kanga House was built in the late 1890’s with high ceilings and spacious rooms.
It is a solid 3 storey brick terrace building on the western side of Victoria Street looking out over the city skyline, Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
Because it is on the right side of Victoria Street there is nothing to obstruct the amazing views.
No other backpackers in Sydney has the views we have from our rooms!
Is this a Great Location or What?
It’s not just the views that make a great location.
Butlers Stairs are just beside us and lead down to Woolloomooloo and on to the Botanic Gardens and Opera House.
The Kings Cross train station (underground, subway, U-Bahn, Metro) is two minutes level walk away. It’s one stop to Martin Place, the centre of Sydney,
and two stops to Bondi Junction.
