Destination guide

Grab your sunscreen and sandals for a day at Bondi Beach

Surfs up! Visitors and locals alike flock to the crescent shaped, white-sand shores of Bondi, Australia's iconic beach just 7 kilometres from Downtown Sydney. Sun kissed vacationers can spend the day working on their tans or cooling off in the waters with a quick swim or surfing session. Getting hungry? Nearby Hall Street is dotted with trendy eateries and laid-back pubs. You can work off your meal with a walk or a jog along the dramatic cliffs perched high above the beaches. Be sure to book your Bondi Beach vacation rental early as its one of the most popular areas in Australia.

Things to do

Things are going swimmingly – splash down into fun

Learn about the world under the sea at the Marine Discovery Centre, an aquarium that highlights marine life throughout Australia. Jump into the waters yourself for a unique experience at the Iceberg ocean pool – it's set so close to the ocean that waves literally crash into the pool. Parks provide plenty of fun in Bondi, including Bondi Skate Park and elevated Hunter Park, home to a sculpture garden and panoramic views of the city and water. Need a culture fix? Make your way to the Bondi Pavilion Community Centre, which has an art gallery, a theatre and outdoor amphitheatre.


From surfing to skating, Bondi Beach buzzes with activity

If you nabbed a Bondi Beach vacation rental in the hopes of enjoying some water adventures, you're in luck as the area offers plenty of surfing, scuba diving and snorkelling. For a more laid-back afternoon, peruse the nearby surf shops, cafes and art galleries. Every Sunday, the city hosts the Bondi Beach Market, where local vendors sell such fare as jewellery, vintage clothing and crafts. Special events take place throughout the year as well, including everything from organised runs and kite flying festivals, to winter celebrations with ice skating rinks.


Sunny skies on a warm summer day in Sydney

Your Bondi Beach vacation rental never puts you far from the beach, which is good because summers in the region can be scorching. In the late spring and summer, it's not uncommon for temperatures to exceed 35 degrees with humidity to match. Even the ocean heats up, with water temperatures climbing as high as 24 degrees in February. Winter brings a surprising number of sunny days, but daytime highs average a cool 16 degrees. Although it's rarely a deluge, rain falls steadily throughout the year, so it's a good idea to always keep an umbrella handy.

Natural highlights

Have a whale of a good time in breathtaking Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach's natural beauty comes from its seaside setting, from its horseshoe-shaped shoreline to waves crashing on its white sand beaches. Soak up the views from atop the city's famed cliffs, where grassy hillsides serve as a popular spot for picnics, barbecues or just tossing a frisbee. Interested in wildlife? You'll find plenty in Bondi Beach, particularly in the waters filled with sharks and dolphins. In the spring and autumn, keep an eye out for migrating whales swimming off the coast of Bondi Beach. Although rare, you may also spot fairy penguins riding the perfect wave alongside surfers.
