Visit the world-famous beach
Bondi Beach is an iconic stretch of fine sand and curling waves and one of the world’s most famous beach destinations. You’ll enjoy Bondi at any time of the year. The beach is flanked by sandstone headlands, which are popular for walking, golfing and whale watching.
Bondi Beach is 30 minutes from Town Hall Station by train and bus, and offers visitors insights into Australia’s easy-going beach culture. You can learn more about the beach and its history and meet a Bondi surf lifesaver on Lets Go Surfing’s Discover Bondi Walking Tour.
Picnics and fish and chips on the beach are popular or dine out at one of the vibrant cafés and bars overlooking the beach on Campbell Parade and in nearby streets.
Shopping for beach fashion and swimwear by Australian and international designers is a great way to spend a few hours. Places to stay range from hostels to stylish apartments.
Even complete novices can learn to surf at one of the accredited surf schools. Marvel at the skill of board-riders surfing near the beach’s southern end. On weekends mingle with locals at Bondi Farmers Market on Saturday and the Bondi Markets on Sunday.
Eating out is one of the attractions at Bondi. You’ll find award-winning restaurants with great views at both ends of the beach, which stretches for 1.5 km. Sean’s Panaroma is at the northern end and Icebergs Dining Room and Bar is to the south.
