Bondi to Coogee Beach Coastal Walk, Sydney

Bondi Beach, Sydney

Bondi Beach, Sydney

Finally a hot day and we decided to join the Sydney Siders exercising on the Bondi to Coogee Coastal walk. It’s a popular exercise route and walk amongst locals and tourists alike. We took the 333 bus from Alfred Street behind Circular Quay to Bondi Beach. We were told by our  that it is much quicker than taking the train. Bus 380 also runs the same route but has a few more stops and is slightly slower.

The walk begins at the southern end of Bondi Beach and is easy to follow. It’s approximately 6 or so Kilometres and takes about  two hours without stopping at the various beaches along the way. It’s a lovely walk and not very strenuous although there are some steep areas. We did it in flip flops (or as they call them here “Thongs”) without any difficulty although would have been easier in sturdier shoes.

 Unless you are young , love the surf and love crowds, Bondi Beach is not for you. We do however highly recommend the walk from Bondi to Coogee Beach as a great day out in Sydney. Quieter beaches and bays passed along the way are Tamarama Bay, Bronte Beach, Clovelly Bay and along to Gordons Bay and finally Coogee Bay. Gordons Bay  is an aquatic reserve and  is good for snorkelling as well as a popular dive spot. You’ll know when you’re at the mid way point when you reach the Sydney cemetery.

 Most of the bays have facilities, fresh water fountains and cafes so you are able to stop off and sunbathe, swim, or stop for a drink along the way but make sure you take plenty of water with you anyway. The end of the coastal walk brings you Coogee Beach. Although Coogee is busy it is more of a family beach than Bondi with few surfers to worry about whilst swimming. There are lots of shops , cafes and bars at the end of your walk and you can take the 373 bus back to Circular Quay from Coogee.
