Brothels, stripclubs, gentlemans bars and bordellos can be found practically everywhere. However, there is a tendency for adult establishments to cluster together and form what is known as a ‘Red Light District,’ though nowadays actual red lights are far less common. Take a wander through the historic and current Red Light Districts of Australia…

Sydney: Kings Cross

Kings Cross, located in the heart of Sydney, is among Australia’s most well-known Red Light District. In the past, it was infamous for rowdy nightlife & adult entertainment. However, over the years, the district has undergone significant gentrification and changes in regulations, which have led to a decline in its prominence as a Red Light District.

Melbourne: St. Kilda

St. Kilda, a beachside suburb of Melbourne, has had a long history of being associated with the sex industry. While efforts have been made to reduce the presence of street-based sex work in the area, adult entertainment venues can still be found across St. Kilda. The district is also known for its vibrant music and arts scene, making it a unique blend of cultures and lifestyles.

Brisbane: Fortitude Valley

Fortitude Valley, or “The Valley” as it is commonly known, is Brisbane’s answer to Red Light Districts. It has a colourful history of nightlife and adult entertainment venues, making it a popular destination for partygoers. However, like Kings Cross in Sydney, The Valley has also seen efforts to clean up its image, leading to changes in the types of establishments present.

Perth: Northbridge

Northbridge, located in the heart of Perth, is known for its bustling nightlife and entertainment options, including various adult-oriented establishments. Just across the bridge in Burswood is Langtrees Perth; a long-standing, highly regarded gentlemans club. Northbridge is known for its vibrant atmosphere, with bars, nightclubs, and strip clubs attracting both locals and tourists.

Adelaide: Hindley Street

Hindley Street in Adelaide has been historically associated with adult entertainment venues, such as strip clubs and brothels. While there have been efforts to reduce its association with the sex industry it remains a notable location for those seeking adult entertainment options.

Darwin: Mitchell Street

Darwin’s Mitchell Street, in the city’s central business district, has a reputation for its nightlife and adult entertainment offerings. This area caters to a mix of locals and visitors, offering various bars, nightclubs, and other adult-oriented venues. It’s worth noting that the dynamics of the sex industry in the Northern Territory differ from other states in Australia.

Canberra: Fyshwick

Fyshwick, located in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), has several adult entertainment businesses, including brothels and adult shops. The ACT has unique laws regulating the sex industry, and Fyshwick has been a focal point for these activities in the region and considered a Red Light District. Of course, it is the home of Harlots Canberra, so do come say hello!

Although the premise of sex work is very simple, there are infinite reasons why people choose to book with Harlots! Sometimes it is as simple as seeking physical satisfaction; a purely animalistic pleasure-seeking adventure. But sometimes there’s something more at play…
