Things to do in Bondi Beach
At any time of the year, Bondi Beach is a buzzing morning, late afternoon and night-time scene. Enjoy a tasty coffee and some breakfast before walking the Bondi to Coogee coastline. Take in a long, lazy lunch in one of the suburb’s excellent restaurants. Among the dining options is Sean’s Panaroma, a landmark of Bondi culture. It offers a mix of classic Italian and Australian dishes as well as superb views of the beach and ocean. At the other end of the beach, you’ll find Icebergs Dining Room and Bar , with its stunning views. Join the queue at Gelato Messina - it will give you time to make your choice from the daily ice cream specials board. Finish a perfect day in Bondi with a cocktail as you rub shoulders with popular Sydney stars who call this beachside icon home. (Bondi Beach Lifestyle, ND)
Surfers of all skill levels head to Bondi Beach to try out the waves. If you’re a beginner, there are several excellent surf schools that offer lessons year round. Protected areas make it easy for novices to learn, while the more experienced surfers head to the south end of the beach. (Bondi Beach Lifestyle, ND)

Sunday morning at Bondi markets gives shoppers the opportunity to see the next big fashion designers in the making, as stallholders showcase their up and coming designs at affordable prices. Vintage finds and souvenirs are also for sale. (Bondi Beach Lifestyle, ND)

Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk
The Bondi to Coogee Walk is a picturesque coastal route featuring beaches, bays, rock pools, cliffs and of course stunning views. The 6 km route also meanders past the café strips of Coogee and Bronte so stopping to refuel is all part of the fun. (Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, ND)
The walk begins at iconic Bondi Icebergs, just above the Bondi Baths at the southern end of the beach. There are actually two routes you could take from this point. Either walk along the path, or climb some steep steps to Marks Park where you’ll find spectacular views, and a range of Aboriginal rock carvings. (Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, ND)
Heading towards Tamarama, you’ll pass by Mackenzie’s Point Beach, which is only accessible at low tide and not recommended for swimming – but surfers love catching a wave here From Tamarama, the short distance to Bronte Beach is an easy, level section of the route with glorious views. At Bronte, take the steep stairs near the rock pool to the cliff top board walk for postcard views of Tamarama, Bronte and Bondi to the north and Malabar Headland to the south. The coastal walk continues on to Clovelly Beach and Coogee Beach. (Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, ND)
