Sydney East


Day trip to the beach

For relaxation and fun, escape to world-famous Bondi Beach. An easy way to get to the gorgeous beach from the city centre is by public transport. Take a train from Town Hall Station to Bondi Junction, where you board a bus for North Bondi.

Family day out in Sydney's east

Bondi Beach

Using public transport to get to Sydney's eastern suburbs won't limit your choices of things to do. Use the Family Funday Sunday ticket for just $2.50 per person to enjoy a fun day out with unlimited travel on Sydney's buses, trains, ferries and light rail every Sunday.

Head to Bondi Junction from the city centre and, if you're travelling with young teenagers, be prepared to spend some time checking out the very cool shops at Westfield Bondi Junction.

From there you can head in all directions. If you want to take the kids to the beach, Bondi, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee are all great beaches with pools and picnic areas. Fancy introducing the kids to horse riding? Take advantage of the proximity to the city centre of Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre which has a range of pony rides for young children. It's also perfect for picnics, walks and feeding ducks at the duck pond.

Watsons Bay is a stunning picnic spot overlooking the harbour. Go for a walk, have fish'n chips on the harbour beach and then head back to Circular Quay by ferry.

  • Bondi Beach


    Round up the family and catch a bus to one of the nearby Sydney beaches. Laze on the sand at the iconic Bondi Beach, follow the scenic Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, and stop by the pretty Bronte Beach on your way. Buses also run to Maroubra and Coogee beaches, both great spots for a swim.

    Eating Out

    Enjoy cute seaside cafes, local takeaways, and seafood restaurants with stunning ocean views. Bars and pubs, such as the Watsons Beach Hotel, are at their seaside best with panoramic views. Another great idea is to grab fish and chips and eat on the beach, a classic Aussie feed.

  • Horse riding in Centennial Park, Sydney


    Head to the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium, two of Australia's premier sporting and entertainment venues, to see including world-class games of cricket, football and rugby league or union. Check out the Centennial Parklands for cycling, a round of golf or horse riding.
