Australia’s most famous beach is a curving golden stretch of pale gold sand and turquoise waves. Attracting beach bunnies, surfer dudes and beach lovers alike, it’s one of Sydney’s favorite hot spots for catching the sun and people watching. Lifeguards patrol the often pounding waves, so it’s important to swim between the patrolled red and yellow flags.
The sands of Bondi Beach are a popular spot for surfing lessons, beachside volleyball, yoga and community festivities, and the beach is overlooked by a stream of shops, restaurants and cafes for post-beach dining and relaxation. Picturesque coastal walks lead from Bondi over the seaside cliffs to the neighboring beaches of Clovelly and Bronte, and to the romantic Victorian cemetery overlooking the coast at Waverley.
An excellent and economical way to see the high spots of Sydney. We joined the bus in the city centre and went out to Bondi Beach where we had a stroll. The first thing that strikes you is the "laid back" commentary. Better than the usual formal stuff. After our "walk-about" we returned to the City via the most desirable dwellings around. We stayed onboard for some of the City sights, had a walk then caught the City tour bus where we actually hopped on and off to visit the attractions.
The GOOD points - easy going, informative, economical and good fun.
The NOT- SO-GOOD points the Bondi bus was old and dirty but still did it's job.
Very worthwhile given the distance between attractions in Sydney. Especially good if you want to see Bondi Beach.
Whole trip excellent. Bondi superb!!!
Bondi Beach is in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, only a few miles from the city centre. Giving its name to the connecting suburbs of Bondi Junction and Bondi Beach, it faces the crashing waves of the Pacific ocean rather than calmer Sydney Harbour. You can catch buses direct to Bondi Beach from central Sydney, and buses run from the city centre to Bondi Junction, a quick bus trip from the beach.
