Whilst a famous tourist location, I’m not a huge fan of Bondi Beach – probably primarily due to it being a victim of it’s own success and being overrun by annoying tourists like myself. ;-)
However Bondi isn’t only just a beach, it’s the start of a walkway leading along the coast and down to Coogee and back. The walk winds along the coast, often along the edge of cliffs and through various quieter coves. It’s a nice escape from Sydney city and suburbs and for a short time you can forget you live in a massive sprawling city.
Winter Sydney is a lovely and mild climate, particularly on this overcast and windy day – definitely the best time of the year to go for walking adventures, especially if you’re a manly kiwi who doesn’t think 10 degrees is cold.
For details about the walk, take a look at this site. I found it was easy enough to get the train to Bondi station and then walk to Bondi beach as a warmup instead of waiting around for a bus and it saves a few dollars on the trip cost as well.
