The Bondi to Bronte Coastal Walk allows you to be immersed in the most beautiful beaches that Sydney has to offer without spending a cent.
The walk is 3.5 km long and roughly takes about an hour, depending on your pace. The trail heads south from Bondi Beach and follows the coastline till Bronte Beach
via a cliff top path that offers stunning, uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. The path rises and falls with the natural landscape and dips down for a close up look around Tamarama Beach. There are benches peppered throughout the walk, so take some time to have a seat and drink in the atmosphere.
The walk begins at the southern end of Bondi Beach, near the famous Bondi Icebergs outdoor swimming pool and ends at Bronte Beach Park. I like to start the walk at Ben Buckler’s point in North Bondi and stroll along the promenade past The Bondi Pavilion before joining up with the coastal walk path. It is also possible to continue the walk past Bronte Beach around to Clovelly and then Coogee Beaches.
The walk is not very hard in terms of difficulty, however there are several staircases, some fairly steep, but thankfully there is a handrail provided. You are free to take along your four legged friend, however a lead must be used at all times.
There is more than just stunning oceanic views along the way too. Watch out for the swimmers in Bondi Icebergs outdoor swimming pool, the winter chills do not scare away the dedicated locals out for a few laps. Tamarama Beach is cheekily nicknamed “Glamorama”, so keep an eye out for some beautiful people! You can find public toilets at the all beaches as well as parks that offer picnic shelters, coin operated barbeques and kiosks.
There is metered parking on the street available at both Bronte and Bondi as well as Bondi Beach car park. Both these beaches have a myriad of fantastic cafes, so no matter which end you start at, you can reward yourself with something fantastic at the end!
