Coastal Walk

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.

Tamarama Beach

Tamarama Beach is a small beach popular with surfers. Take in the local vibe and enjoy a refreshment from the Kiosk.

Sculpture by the Sea

Every spring the coastal walk transforms into a 2km long sculpture park featuring over 100 sculptures by artists from Australia and abroad.


The 4km cliff-top walk is dotted with fantastic lookouts and resting spots. The walk is graded as easy to medium with quite a few steps.

Bronte Beach

Bronte Beach features a 30-metre ocean pool at the south end and that is a favourite with both locals and visitors.

Waverley Cemetery

South of Bronte, a boardwalk passes the historic Waverley Cemetery which is the resting place of many famous Australians.

Gordons Bay

Gordon's Bay is tucked in between Clovelly Beach and Coogee Beach. It has an underwater nature trail perfect for snorkelers and scuba divers.
