With one of the most iconic beaches of them all, Bondi is a uniquely urban paradise, offering sun, sand and surf, a mere 30 to 40 minutes beyond the CBD.

A mecca for those looking to join the parade of tanned bodies, catch some waves, relax on the sand or take in the bracing ocean air with a coastal walk, it offers the quintessential Australian beach experience. And with its line-up of superb restaurants and bars, it has an effervescent spirit that parties well in the night.

For those looking to base themselves in the area, there are a number of apartments and short-term accommodation options set just beyond the main water-front hub.

If you’re looking to visit for the day, public transport is always a good bet, because parking space is usually at a premium in this bustling cosmopolitan hub. It’s a train ride to Bondi Junction, where you’ll change for the 381 or 382 bus which will take you right on the beach.

One of Sydney’s favourite spots, Bondi is a must-do on any tourist’s agenda!
