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.
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 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.
