Is there something on this list to interest you?
I grew up spending my weekends on Bondi Beach many moons ago. I would imagine that most people living in Sydney have visited the famous Bondi Beach. Nowadays, I rarely go there as it is not the same any more. However, in Bondi and surrounding suburbs, they still have some great events that are really worth going to.

If you check through this list, you may find several that appeal to you and that are worth going to, even if you do not live in the close vicinity of Bondi.

1. BONDI ARCHERY
