Kings Cross has been 24/7 drinking since I can remember. It has also been the centre for many questionable activities. Why now is Alcohol become an issue? The Australian culture has changed to such extent, that is obvious that many can not deal with the consumption of Alcohol. Shortening the trading hours will go well toward, helping to put things right.

Maybe licence premises need to go back to the 40's or 50's when they where only opened a few hours a day.
