Destination guide

Beachfront Bronte is a peaceful break from the Sydney scene

If you're dreaming of a seaside stay in Sydney without the big city chaos, put Bronte at the top of your list. In addition to a chill, laid-back atmosphere, this charming suburb has its own beach, beautiful cliff top walking paths, and some tasty restaurants. Sydney's centre is about 9 km away, so Bronte vacation rentals give you the best of both worlds: relaxed accommodation in serene neighbourhoods, with easy access to a sophisticated metropolis with world-famous attractions. You can veg out in a sea-fed pool, or glam it up at the nearby nightclubs.

Things to do

The waves of Bronte Beach are swell for surfing

The hot spot in this suburb, especially for surfing, is Bronte Beach. It's a wide stretch of sand flanked by a perfect park (Bronte Park), and home to some seriously cool sea-fed pools with sheltered swim areas. Stroll through Bronte Park to see the historic Bronte House, a 19th-century mansion and heritage site. If you need some retail therapy, nearby Bondi Junction, home to the sprawling Westfield mall, is the premiere place to shop. Explore the trendiest clothes and restaurants, and then pack some coldies and a picnic to catch a flick at the huge outdoor amphitheatre, Moonlight Cinema.


Eat, swim and surf your heart out in this relaxed suburb

Bronte's right on the Sydney coast, so water lovers have their choice of activities, from surfing to lap-swimming in a roped-off sea-fed pool. There's also a bogey hole that's walled off by rocks, so kids can safely swim. And if a seaside stroll sounds sweet, check out the Bronte to Bondi Coastal Walk, a 3-kilometre jaunt with sweeping vistas along Sydney's best beaches. Bronte's burgeoning food scene means you've got some options, from Vietnamese cuisine to modern Australian eats. If that still doesn't satisfy your palate, nearby Sydney is the foodie capital of New South Wales.


Beat the crowds and spring for a springtime visit

Unless you're a snow bunny, you can't go wrong with this year-round balmy weather. Bronte's humid subtropical climate brings mild winters with lows in the teens, and blissfully warm summer days in the upper 20s. If you're worried about rain spoiling your beach time, February through June is when showers fall most frequently. Bronte vacation rentals are busiest during summer and particularly around Christmas. To avoid crowds and snag some great deals, try visiting in spring between September to November, and in fall, from March to May.

Natural highlights

Low-lying coastlands let you really see the sea

Just off the Bronte coast, the Tasman Sea in the South Pacific is a turquoise body of water that, while beautiful, can get a little gnarly, especially with rip tides. But the waves are 'swell' for surfing, and several sea-fed pools walled off by rocks provide calm, safe swimming areas. The land around Bronte vacation rentals is flat and low-lying, so you'll have lots of opps to admire the sea views and lush vegetation. Sydney's a big city, so this suburb's not exactly teeming with wild animals. Off the coast though, marine life thrives, including crustaceans, corals, fish and more.
