Not Just Famous With The Locals But With Celebrities Too
Home to one of the world's oldest surf life saving clubs is the spectacular Bondi Beach with its 1km long strip. It is eight kilometres to Sydney CBD and attracts more than forty thousand visitors each year... it is no wonder this beach is famous worldwide.

Check out those amazing hues...


Bondi Beach does not just attract locals, it attracts backpackers from all over the world, billionaires, board riders, self confident topless sun bathers and international tourists.... pretty much everyone is attracted to this iconic beach. Even famous celebrities can be spotted here, including some of our own Aussie celebs such as Hugh Jackman, Cate Blanchett and the list goes on...

The beach is patrolled by lifesavers, making it a safe way to catch the surf, splash around or just take a dip.

A view of Bondi Beach from one of the viewing points...


A walk along the beachfront promenade is an absolute must. Campbell Parade is filled with surf wear shops, souvenirs, outdoor cafes, cool bars and of course fish 'n' chips shops. The latest designer fashion can be found at Hall Street, while Curlewis Street is the home of art and galleries.

There is a wonderful coastal walk which begins at the south end of the beach. The coastal walk offers one of the most spectacular Sydney views as you make your way to Coogee Beach. There are also a number of small scenic beaches on the way.

One of the many spectacular views of the beach...


The nightlife at Bondi Beach is also a must, the restaurants tempt your senses, the pubs come alive and the dance floor is awaiting your arrival at the nightclubs.

The whole atmosphere is casual and relaxed and with plenty of public transport operating frequently this is a must add on the list of things to see and do.

Another amazing view from a viewing point...


It is one of Australia's icons and it would be almost absurd not to visit this iconic beach at least once in your lifetime.
