Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk

Bondi to Coogee

The walk along the coast from Bondi beach to Coogee beach is one of the beast coastal walks in Sydney which combines superb coastal views, swimming opportunities and fantastic restaurants and cafes.

Starting from the southern end of the Bondi Beach promenade the track takes you past the swimming baths which are home to the infamous Bondi Icebergs, whose members swim every day of the year regardless of how cold the weather. The path continues out to the headland of Mackenzies Point which offers fantastic views both north and south as well as an Aboriginal rock carving site.

The path then winds down to Tamarama and Bronte beach where its possible to relax in a café or have a swim in the surf or ocean pools. Continuing on, the path leads through the Waverley Cemetery, superbly located on cliff tops and offers some amazing oceans views. The Cemetery is the resting place of numerous famous Australians such as Henry Lawson, Victor Trumper, Lawrence Hargrave, Henry Kendall.

Walk on past Clovelly beach and Gordon’s Bay before reaching Coogee, a small beach enclosed by green headlands and backed with rows of cafes, restaurants and boutiques.

The walk is well marked with signs and should take and easy two and half hours for what is one of the best coastal walks in Sydney.
