Guide to Bondi
Home to Australia’s most famous beach, ocean pools, quality surf and a bustling social scene, Bondi blends ocean life with city charms. Welcome to dreamland.
If you’ve never heard of the “Bondi bubble”, spend one day in this bustling, beautiful blue oceanside village and you’ll soon catch on. Even to locals, this slice of heaven is a real-life wonderland. Start your day watching the sunrise paint the ocean with a gorgeous glow before cooling off in an iconic ocean pool and filling up on a scrumptious brunch with a side of ocean views. Early birds and activity seekers will love the endless array of action – that starts before the sun’s up – while cruisers can chill out browsing boutiques or relax with a drink in hand. Keep an eye out and you may even see breaching whales and surfing dolphins across the one-kilometre (0.6-mile) stretch of glorious ocean. There really is nowhere quite like Bondi.
