Let's Go Surfing at Bondi

Visit the most famous beach in Australia, a place known around the world for its golden sand, rolling waves, beautiful people and fun-loving lifestyle. You can expect Bondi to be packed with locals and tourists alike every day in the warmer months. Dive straight into the ocean (make sure you stay between the red and yellow flags), splash about in the two rock pools at the beach’s northern end or join the surfers bobbing off the southern end. Away from the water, Bondi also has a reputation for its stylish shopping, buzzy bars and great restaurants.

How To Get There
