One of the most spectacular walks in the world, Bondi’s renowned Coastal Walk, starts from the southern end of the beach, and winds its way across to Mackenzies Bay, Tamarama Beach, Bronte Beach and Waverley Cemetery (and then beyond to Coogee). The path was created as a government-funded initiative in the 1930s.
Offering dramatic ocean views from every angle, the walk is a must-do activity for any visitor to Bondi, and a regular exercise option for many locals.
Aboriginal rock carvings of a shark and whale can be found next to the path south of Mackenzies Point, and from May to November, you may even be fortunate enough to see dolphins playing the waves, or whales breaching offshore.
From October to November every year, the walk is also home to the beautiful Sculpture by the Sea exhibition – one of the largest and most beautiful free outdoor exhibitions in the world.
Please be aware that there are several staircases along the path, so it’s foot traffic only.
The beach side parks along the route offer picnic shelters, coin-operated barbecues, play areas, kiosks, toilets and change-rooms.
