Bondi Beach

Bondi is a popular beach suburb and for some, the first thing they associate with Australia.  It is a good place to come for solo travellers and is popular with backpackers.

Bondi is a casual suburb.  Its town is busy with plenty of shops, restaurants and coffee shops.  A Westfield Shopping Centre is a short drive away.

Things to Do at Bondi

There is a walk along the clifftops which leads to Coogee, another local suburb,  for those who want to explore the area and take in the views. Alternatively, take a dip in the safe swim area which is marked out by flags or swim in the rock pool.  If skateboarding is your thing, then there is a beachfront skate park worth a visit.

Ice Cream

Gelatissimo is a great ice cream parlour with some flavours that are unavailable in the UK.  Golden macadamia blondie, salted macadamia and dulce de leche to name a few.  The hokey pokey is highly recommended which is toffee with honeycomb!

Westfield at Bondi Junction

About half an hour’s walk away or a 5 minute taxi ride, is Westfield Shopping Mall at Bondi Junction.  It’s a typical Westfield but still a great way to spend some time away from the beach.
