About Bondi

Located just 8km from the CBD, Bondi is one of the city’s busiest beaches. It’s also the setting for more postcards and travel snaps than perhaps any other destination in Australia.

Experience Bondi’s carefree, sun-drenched lifestyle with a walk along the main promenade and up to Bondi’s northern headland where you may even spot a minke whale during the migration season between May - November.

Hall Street is home to Bondi’s new dining precinct, with favourites like Gelato Messina and Bills taking pride of place on the footpath. Beachfront dining is best experienced at Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, although there are several casual outdoor cafes and fish shops available directly opposite the beach.

Popular Bondi pubs such as the vibrant Beach Road Hotel and the prominent Bondi Hotel offer relaxed atmospheres where you can meet travellers from almost anywhere and sample the best Australian beer available, while more upmarket wine bars such as Ravesi's cater to Bondi's glamourous side.

With a temperate climate, locals and visitors surf and swim year-round, and swimmers often plunge into the popular ocean baths as soon as the sun comes up. Surfers can be spotted paddling through the waves each morning and several surf schools operate along the beach, such as Let's Go Surfing

Sculpture by the Sea is the world's largest annual free-to-public outdoor sculpture exhibition and is located along the popular Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk during October - November, featuring over 100 sculptures by local and international artists.

    The Bondi to Coogee walk is a clifftop coastal path that extends for 6km through Bondi, Tamarama, Bronte and Clovelly beaches. It’s a medium grade walk with plenty of cafes and picnic areas to rest at along the way. The walk also offers unobstructed views of Sydney’s incredible coastline - you might even spot a whale or two!

There’s a range of much-loved drinking spots, award-winning gelaterias, trendy eateries, and bright and sunny cafes for brunch - many of which offer stellar views of the ocean.
