About Bondi

Bondi is one of the world’s most famous beaches thanks to its surfing breaks, pristine golden sands and iconic lifeguards (as featured on global hit TV show Bondi Rescue). The surrounding area is teeming with outdoor cafés, restaurants and health clubs making the most of the outdoorsy, active vibe. Just 8km from central Sydney, Bondi is also known for cultural events like Sculpture by the Sea, stunning coastal walks and one of the best weekend farmers’ markets in town. 

Bondi hostels typify the Aussie beach lifestyle, with rooftop terraces decked out with umbrellas and lounge chairs so you can make the most of the coastal views. Take advantage of hostels offering free beach and sporting equipment including surfboards, snorkelling gear and skateboards, or join free yoga classes and personal training sessions. A Bondi Beach hostel has female-only or mixed dorm options, and you can sometimes upgrade to premium rooms with sea views. Private singles, twins and double rooms are also available.

The golden sands of Bondi Beach stretch for a kilometre, with seawater bathing pools at either end. The grassy knoll in front of the beach is popular with picnickers and a great spot to munch fish and chips. Running along the coast you’ll find Campbell Parade, which is lined with cool cafés, multicultural restaurants and independent boutiques. A block away from the beach, Gould Street is home to more upmarket shops showcasing Australian and international labels.

If you fancy something more active than sunbathing or frolicking at the beach, take the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk. The 6km scenic trail begins at the south end of the beach and follows the clifftops to Tamarama and Coogee beaches. Each October, the path is enhanced with more than 100 pieces of art for the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition. Cool off with a dip in the ocean or Sydney’s most famous pool, Bondi Icebergs, where waves crash into open-air swim lanes.

Bondi is a small suburb that you can navigate easily by foot or bike. Local buses run regularly from central Sydney’s Circular Quay and take around 45 minutes. Train station Bondi Junction is 2km from the beach and connects to Sydney’s Town Hall station in 10 minutes. If you're coming directly from Sydney Airport, the quickest way is a train to Museum Station where you can change to a bus. The whole journey should take under an hour.
