Bondi Beach has a style all its own. Book in for a surf lesson or head to the famous Bondi Markets. The promenade at the back of the beach is a favourite walking and jogging track, and Campbell Parade is a popular grazing ground for Sydney’s cafe society. Perched on the southern tip of Australia’s most famous beach is one of the city’s most spectacular drinking and dining spots, Icebergs Dining Room and Bar. As night approaches, slip into something a little more glamorous and watch the sunset with a cocktail and light bite. If you’re after something a little less formal, try theBucket List for a casual beach vibe.
