The Bondi to Bronte walk is one of those experiences that postcards are made of. It’s definitely one of the most photographed walks in Australia…and for good reason.
The Bondi Coastal Walk that takes you to Bronte stretches 2.5 kilometers along the Sydney coast. If you are up for a longer venture, then keep heading from Bronte to Coogee, which is an additional 3.5 kilometers.
The walk weaves along Sydney’s coast, and so you’ll find yourself tracking along the sandstone cliffs. And as you track along on the Bondi to Bronte walk, there’s stunning panoramic views all along the way.
To be honest – you’ll hardly notice you’ve just walked 2.5 kilometers because it is truly so beautiful. The hardest part of the walk is actually not stopping every few minutes just to grab those amazing panoramic snaps. And so, I find that the Bondi coastal walk is a great way to stay fit and healthy while traveling.
It’s one of the best walks in Sydney, and a must-do when you are in town.
Highlights on the Bondi to Bronte Walk
ENJOY THE SUNSET AT BONDI
Ahhh the sunset is one of the best times to make your way to Bondi Beach. As the sky turns into various shades of pink, yellow, and orange, the scene from the beginning of the Bondi to Bronte walk is just stunning. I even recommend heading to the bar at Bondi Icebergs for a drink, the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset.
WATCH SURFERS SURF
When the surfs pumping, there are heaps of surfers out catching a wave. It’s fun to watch the surfers, and there are a few great spots along the Bondi coastal walk to watch the surfers out in the water. Some vantage points include the top of the cliffs looking over Tamarama Beach and Bronte Beach.
SCULPTURES BY THE SEA
Sculptures by the Sea Bondi is a public exhibition that has been running for over 20 years, and is one of the world’s largest free outdoor sculpture exhibitions. Held annually, you can enjoy Sculptures by the Sea all along your Bronte to Bondi walk between late October to early November.
Basically from Bondi Beach right down to Tamarama Beach, the 2km walk is transformed into a sculpture park that feature over 100 sculptures by Australian and global artists.
SWIM AT THE FAMOUS BONDI ICEBERGS
The swimming pool at Bondi Icebergs is one the most Instagrammed spots in Sydney, and it’s been around for over 100 years. Bondi Icebergs offers a great vantage spot overlooking Bondi Beach. But did you know that you can actually also swim in the pool? The swimming pool at Bondi Icebergs is open to the public all year round and costs A$7 for adults and A$5 for kids to swim.
WALK THE DOG
One thing you’ll notice when you do this coastal walk is the number of pet owners walking their dog. Hubby and I have dogsit a few times while in Sydney, and found the Bronte to Bondi walk a perfect spot to walk the dog. So, if you do find yourself pet sitting while in Sydney, the Bronte to Bondi walk is a great place to walk the dog. Do make sure to keep the dog on the leash the whole walk.
SPOT WHALES IN THE DISTANCE
From May until November, the Bondi Coastal Walk is a great place to spot humpback whales in the distance, with the absolute best time of the year being end of June to early July. There are plenty of vantage spots along the walk, which is elevated enough so you can spot the whales. And if you do have a binocular handy, I recommend to bring it along with you on the walk.
