BONDI BEACH

Get to know
the area

A place where thongs are the preferred footwear and tan lines never fade, this surf-loving suburb lays claim to being one of Australia’s most iconic destinations. And for good reason. When the heat index is up, everyone gravitates to the wide sandy stretch of Bondi Beach. It’s easy to distinguish the locals from the tourists – the locals are toned and tanned and can be found hanging out along the promenade or in one of the funky laid-back cafés in their workout gear.

Lifestyle

Bondi Beach has a unique culture and vibrancy that feeds off of being in the outdoors.

As the sun breaks over the horizon, surfers are out in full force vying for the perfect wave. Meanwhile, fitness junkies pound the pavement, making their way along the coastline to adjoining beachside enclaves on the renowned Coastal Walk – come winter this is a locals-only haunt.

Steeped in surfing history, Bondi Beach is as much a celebrity as the A-listers who come to the shoreline to wet their feet. Television series have revolved around the local surf life saving culture that services a population that can swell to tens of thousands on a warm day.

Bordered by The Promenade, whose wall displays constantly changing works of art, plays host to local festivals throughout the year. At the south end, perched on the rugged shoreline, are the ocean baths and Bondi Icebergs Club, a local institution that caters to the morning and evening crowd.

Away from the beach a profusion of cafés, restaurants and bars line Campbell Parade and surrounding streets. Although Campbell Street is where the tourists gather, step into one of the backstreets and you’ll find the locals. Whether it’s an established hangout or a pop-up catering to the latest health fad, the laid-back scene has left its mark on Sydney’s foodie scene. Boutique shops have been moving in along Gould Street, ensuring that they too stake their claim along this famous stretch.

Area Features

COASTAL WALK

The trail that hugs the coastline between Bondi Beach and Coogee to the south and Bondi Beach to Watsons Bay to the north. In all its rugged beauty, this is one of the most popular walks in the greater Sydney region. 

BONDI BEACH

The star attraction is the actual beach which is busy year round. Surfers can be seen bobbing in the big blue no matter the weather. Festivals up the ante on weekends, and the Bondi Icebergs Club dominates the southern end of the beach. At the right time of year, It’s not uncommon to see migrating whales capturing the attention of the crowds on the headlands. 

BEN BUCKLER POINT

At the northern end of Bondi Beach, this point offers the best views of Bondi Beach and beyond.
