Wayside Chapel is hosting an evening tour that goes into the nooks and crannies of Kings Cross to help people to understand what it’s like to live on the streets of Sydney.
The tour is unlike any you‘ll find in a guide book. Your host is a Wayside employee and former rough sleeper who draws on their own experiences of homelessness and addiction to provide people with a rare insight into street life. The tour goes around Kings Cross, Elizabeth Bay and Darlinghurst with your guide pointing out spots of significance along the way and other services that operate in the area.
