Bondi to Coogee Walk
Most Bondi locals and visitors have caught a wave at Bondi Beach before, but if you’re feeling in the mood for a different kind of cardio, then the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk is just the ticket. The 6km stretch of coastal pathways and boardwalks wind their way from the southern end of Bondi Beach, near the famous Icebergs club, through some of Sydney’s most picturesque beaches, including Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee, where the walk eventually culminates.
Depending on your fitness level, the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk takes between 1-2 hours to complete at a leisurely pace and provides plenty of opportunities to take in the local fare. As you set off, you’ll be able to visit the Aboriginal rock carvings or glimpse a few whales at Marks Park, relax at Mackenzie’s Point Beach - one of the state’s smallest beaches - which is only accessible by foot during low tide (so don’t stay too long!), get your caffeine fix at one of Bronte’s charming cafes, snorkel at Clovelly, or enjoy a BBQ picnic and recharge your batteries at Coogee’s shaded picnic area.
If you happen to make your Bondi to Coogee pilgrimage during the last and first weeks of October and November each year, you’ll be able to catch the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition of some of the most talented local and international artists, which is staged on the first 2km of the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, between Bondi and Tamarama.
With so many sights to see and things to do, it’s little wonder that, what started out as a state-run project in the 1930s, has become one of Sydney’s most unique and beloved coastal walks!
Getting There: The Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk starts at Notts Avenue in Bondi, near Icebergs and the Bondi Baths.
Highlights: The historic Waverly Cemetery, Wyllies Baths, Clovelly’s outdoor gym.
Don’t Forget: To slip, slop, slap!
