Must Do

Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk

The Bondi to Coogee Walk is a picturesque coastal route featuring beaches, bays, rock pools, cliffs and of course stunning views. The 6 km route also meanders past the café strips of Coogee and Bronte so stopping to refuel is all part of the fun.

The walk begins at iconic Bondi Icebergs, just above the Bondi Baths at the southern end of the beach. There are actually two routes you could take from this point. Either walk along the path, or climb some steep steps to Marks Park where you'll find spectacular views, and a range of Aboriginal rock carvings.

Heading towards Tamarama, you'll pass by Mackenzie's Point Beach, which is only accessible at low tide and not recommended for swimming – but surfers love catching a wave here From Tamarama, the short distance to Bronte Beach is an easy, level section of the route with glorious views. At Bronte, take the steep stairs near the rock pool to the cliff top board walk for postcard views of Tamarama, Bronte and Bondi to the north and Malabar Headland to the south. The coastal walk continues on to Clovelly Beach and Coogee Beach.
