About Sydney East
Located between the city and the coast, Sydney’s eastern suburbs are home to some of the area’s best- known attractions, including Bondi Beach, Coogee Beach, Watsons Bay, South Head and Nielsen Park.
Bondi Beach has a style all of its own. On Sundays, head to the famous Bondi Markets and browse handicrafts, designer fashions, vintage goods and more. The promenade at the back of the beach is a favourite walking 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 Sydney’s most spectacular drinking and dining spots, Icebergs Dining Room and Bar. For delicious ice cream join the queue at Gelato Messina and marvel at the day’s special board. As night approaches, slip into something glamorous and watch the sunset from the comfort of a waterside bar. For something a bit more casual, try the Bucket List for a laid-back vibe beside the ocean.
If you love seafood, a visit Watsons Bay – Australia’s oldest fishing village – is a must. Enjoy the Sydney Harbour views and indulge in a seafood feast at the iconic Doyle’s on the Beach restaurant or, for something more low-key, try Doyle’s on the Wharf.
The six-kilometre Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk is a highlight. Enjoy the fresh sea air and views of white sand beaches. At Coogee, there are fabulous shopping opportunities, or dine in one of the many restaurants and cafes. Taking in a film at the heritage-listed Ritz Theatre in nearby Randwick is a splendid way to relax after a day of walking.
A short trip from the beaches are Paddington, Bondi Junction and Double Bay, offering some of Sydney’s best shopping, with a mix of high-street boutiques and stylish malls.
In Moore Park you'll find Centennial Parklands, just 10 minutes from the city centre, you can go horseriding, cycling or hiking through the 360-hectare green space.
