This 3.5km walkway linking two of the city’s most famous beaches is one of the best free days out in Sydney.
It’s an easy to medium walk, mostly along the cliff edge that begins on the northern headland of Bronte Beach, traverses the tiny but perfectly formed Tamarama Beach (known as Glamarama to the locals, this is where the bold and beautiful strut their stuff) and skirts the headland of Mackenzies Bay to the southern end of Bondi Beach.
It’s one sweeping view after another.
Look out for Aboriginal rock carvings of sharks and whales in the rocks beside the path. You may well see real whales in the winter months and for three weeks in late October/early November the Bondi to Tamarama section is lined with more than 100 sculptures as part of the annual free Sculpture by the Sea exhibition.
If you want to extend your walk start (or finish) in Coogee, where the cliff-hugging Sesquicentenary Boardwalk links the headland to the beginning of the Bronte to Bondi walk. There are five viewing platforms along the way. Allow around two to three hours if you do the whole Coogee to Bondi walk.
Families: the pathway is not fenced, so keep an eye on your kids.
