Bondi Beach to Coogee Coastal Walk

Home > Sydney > Walks | Beaches
Published October 23rd 2009
Bondi to Coogee coastal walk is the perfect thing to do for a romantic walk or to just be able to blend in with the locals getting a flavour of 4 beaches along the way.

Starting at Bondi this walk stretches for 6kms and takes around 2 hours for someone with reasonable fitness. It's well signposted walk guides you through spectacular views, beaches and plenty of spots to stop and catch food and drink.

The walk starts from south of Bondi and takes you past Bondi Icebergs Club. Walking further down you will reach Mackenzies Point. This is the point that gives you a panoramic view of North and South Bondi and if you look hard you will be able to see Maroubra Beach too in the distance. This is an aboriginal site too that has some engravings and carvings of a whale.

If you keep walking south and you enter a gradual downhill, and the very first beach that you'll come down to is called Tamarama beach. Tamarama is a famous surf beach and this area has plenty of cafes around so you could stop to have a bite. Walking past Tamarama, you're up a gentle rise, over the crest and down into a beautiful beach called Bronte Beach. It's nowhere near as big as Bondi, but it's got a very large grassed area immediately behind it on the promenade and an ocean pool.

Further down you will cross Waverley Cemetery built on probably the most expensive real estate around. Past the cemetery is Clovelly, a sheltered beach popular among families with children. Moving further down you will reach Gordons bay which is a popular snorkeling and scuba diving area.

Finally if you walk down to Gordons Bay you'll come down into Coogee and Coogee Beach. From Coogee you can turn around and walk back if you like, or you can get a Bus 353 back to Bondi Beach.

This not so difficult walk is interesting, picturesque and romantic as well. With plenty of places to stop by for a bite or a photograph you can easily spend a few hours here. You can also check out the map and the details of the walk here.
