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.
This is just such a pretty walk! I’d love to get to Australia one day, but it seems like it’s just not happening. The pink sunset is so perfect; I could imagine myself there just admiring the colours. It’d also be so cool to spot whales there! I’ve only ever seen them on tv!
A walk along the coast is always a fun. This sounds like one such magnificent walk. The possibility of watching whales is surely a great point. I also liked the swimming pool. I think it is the first infinity pool in the world.
Such beautiful photos! I really wanted to do this when I visited but unfortunately I was too sick to even leave the hotel. I am glad I got to live through it with your post though!
Had not heard of the Bondi to Bronte coastal walk in Sydney. The pictures definitely are breathtaking and the types one could only see in the post cards. Would love to take this Bondi to Bronte walk to create our own picture post cards 🙂 Sounds like one could plan a good day trip here, with a nice walk, photo clicks, surfing, dip in the pool and end the day with beautiful sunset! Added this in our list for our visit to Sydney.
Australia is such a beautiful destination and we love the great outdoors of this country. Of course, the coastline is spectacular and probably one of the most charming in the world. The Bondi to Bronte walk looks like it showcases the best of the natural beauty of Australia. The Swimming pool of Bondi Icebergs looks really inviting.
The Bondi to Bronte coastal walk in Sydney looks so beautiful and calm. I’d love to enjoy the sunset and watch the people surfing. Swimming at Bondi Icebergs sounds fun too, and good for Instagram haha. Your photos are really beautiful!
I love walking tour during my travels to new destinations. And your explanation of this beautiful path along the beach makes me yearn for it. Of course I too would have stopped to taking pictures along the path, the panoramic views are indeed breathtaking.
This does seem like a very rejuvenating walk. Loved the various shades of it at different times of the day. I would love to visit the beach sculptures. I would not mind walking a dog too. Hope to make it to Sydney some day.
Gorgeous photos! I did this walk when I was in Sydney last year, although I got the bus to Coogee and then walked back to Bondi. It was a beautiful walk and this brought back some good memories 🙂
