Brief Visit

Just a brief visit prior to walking to Coogee Beach. Dramatic scene with heavy swell and lots of surfers. Good for families but caution required for swimmers.

This is a great place to visit as a tourist and also as a local, A must do if Bondi Seafood on the beach or grass, fresh fish n chips and a deep fried Mars Bar will go down a treat. A great place to enjoy a walk a view or even a dip in the Pacific Ocean

Iconic beach for Sydney, Australia. Loads of tourists flock here every summer. Horrid parking on the main street. Try streets further away from the beach for free parking.

Everyone who visits Sydney must go to Bondi Beach. Great wide sandy beach with good waves - not huge surf waves, but swimming waves. Great restaurants and shops surround.

We went here on a cool windy day so there was hardly any people around. The beach was clean and a nice atmosphere. Along the beach there is some good street art that is worth checking out. Lots of little shops near by to get food etc.

Very body knows Bondi Beach but you have to visit the beach to see just how good it is. On a sunny day it is great for people watching.

A great place to visit. I admit I had to adjust my expectations somewhat. I was expecting a Miami or LA (read Baywatch) style beach with endless golden sands stretching as far as the eye can see. What you get is a half mile long crescent surrounded by low hills covered with houses! But one you adjust, it is a... More

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
