4 years ago, I completely failed at doing this coastal walk because I got lost.
I’d had my heart set on it and despite it being winter, it was a fantastic sunny and warm day. Sounds like a good start right? Well, it definitely started off just fine, then somewhere along the way, I somehow managed to get lost. Yes, my fantastic sense of direction saw me getting lost following one coastal path. I don’t know how it happened either.
So since being back in Sydney, it was time for take 2 and it did NOT disappoint. Visiting in summer just a couple of days after Christmas was perfect. A break from tonnes of food (not that I’m really complaining about this) and a chance to see the sun shining off that crystal clear water is pretty dreamy. What’s even better is that it’s just one of the many free things Sydney has to offer. Check out some more things here to fill your days too.
Here are some of my favourite photos of the 3 hour leisurely walk – and it really is pure leisure!
From right at the start in Coogee, you will be blown away by stunning beaches and see-through waters.
Along the way, you’ll get to walk the amazing rocky coastline too. Did you know, the rocks you will be walking on are Hawkesbury Sandstone and can be traced back over 300 million years ago to when Australia was connected to Antarctica? Crazy eh?
As with lots of places, the lesser known places are often the most beautiful. If you’re going to stop for a dip anywhere then make sure it’s Gordons Bay. Don’t forget your snorkel!
General tip for travelling- don’t forget to stop and look around you in between the main attractions too. Turn around and look behind you and stop and look at what’s right in front of you. The Coogee to Bondi coastal walk is stunning all around. You will eventually come to the incredible Waverly Cemetary. It’s a breathtaking spot and incredibly peaceful.
Once you reach Bronte you’re well over halfway. It’s a beautiful spot to stop for a well-deserved ice cream!
As you carry on along the coastal path you will see some amazing architecture before reaching the end point.
Then, welcome to Bondi!
