Prostitution in Australia (home, live in, legal) - Australia and New Zealand - City-Data Forum
The Daily Planet Ltd, which tomorrow becomes the first brothel to list on the Australian Stock Exchange, has plans to open a "sex Disneyland" in Sydney. Chief executive Andrew Harris said the company is likely to abandon its plans for the Barclay Hotel in Kings Cross and acquire another property three times the size and in a better location. International madam Heidi Fleiss is in Melbourne for the launch and, according to Mr Harris, has played a key role in attracting worldwide media attention for the listing. Mr Harris said The Daily Planet is likely to give up its option on the Barclay Hotel after being offered a better property yesterday. Sydney was attractive because its prostitution laws were less restrictive than Melbourne, Mr Barclay said.
