The new Kings Cross: lockout laws send revellers to Newtown
Petersham, NSW, Australia, 11-Mar-2015
The Newtown sex industry is also benefiting from the influx of people, as a number of Kings Cross brothels shut up shop following decreases in patronage.
Brothel owners around the Newtown area say they have experienced an increase in business since the introduction of the lockout laws.
"If anything, they have made running our business a little easier," said manager of the Gateway Club in Petersham.
