Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk

What to do in Sydney
First stop on the coastal walk, Bondi Beach.

It’s no secret that Australia is home to thousands of beaches. And if you’re spending some time in Sydney, there’s quite a number to choose from in the lively city. But if you’re looking for a little exercise to go with those stunning views, the Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk is a must-do. Starting out at Sydney’s most popular and frequented beach, Bondi, you’ll make your way south for about 6km to Coogee Beach. Along the way you’ll pass three other beaches, Tamarama, Bronte, and Clovelly Beach, along with Waverly Cemetery and Gordons Bay.

The walk itself will take you between one to two hours, depending on your pace (and how many times you stop to take photos), and progresses at a moderate-intensity level. The scenery couldn’t be any more beautiful and will have you wishing you lived in one of the many houses that line the trail. In fact, if I lived in one of those houses or even somewhere close to the trail, I’d be walking or jogging it on a daily basis as so many Sydneysiders were doing.

If words aren’t enough to convince you to add this to your list of things to do in Sydney, then these photos should do the trick.
