sydney gay guide


Home of the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, and sister city to San Francisco, Sydney is usually considered to be the centre of gay life in Australia, but I am sure those from some of the other cities, particularly Melbourne, would disagree!

Check the General Info page for an overview of Sydney and Being Gay for general tips on gay life in Australia. If you know of a gay venue that is not listed here, or have some comments on a venue, send me some email or feedback.

Gay venues in Sydney include hotels/guest houses, bars and pubs, discos, restaurants, saunas and other sex venues. There are two sets of listings, one by type (hotel, bar, etc) with a full description, the other with name and address only grouped by area to make cruising easier. There are also listings for gay businesses and services, and for gay commercial sex services.

The main concentration of gay places in Sydney is in the fashionable and trendy Oxford Street area, with the Newtown area a close second, with a scattering of venues in other areas (city, north shore, eastern suburbs, and western suburbs).
