No trip to Sydney is complete without tackling the Bondi to Bronte walk. And by tackling I mean; be prepared to dodge the masses of other people you’ll be guaranteed to encounter. The walkway is a popular spot for the locals out jogging or walking their dogs and can get quite narrow in some spots. But do not let that deter you. Just check out the photos below and you’ll see why this walk is a must!
Most travellers have heard about the iconic Bondi Beach. The Bondi to Bronte walk starts at Bondi’s famous Icebergs Club and snakes along the rugged coastline to Bronte Beach, offering spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and Sydney’s eastern beaches. The walk actually doesn’t finish there. If you’re feeling energetic, why not continue onto Coogee Beach and beyond. The walk can be completed in either direction and once you’re finished (or if you get totally pooped anywhere along the way), it’s easy to jump on a public bus and head back to where you started.
If you get the opportunity to do the Bondi to Bronte walk before November 10, you will be able to admire the artworks at the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, dotted along the coastline between Bondi and Tamarama Beach. But even if you don’t make it to Sydney before the exhibition ends, don’t worry, the exhibition comes to Bondi annually. And the Bondi to Bronte walk is well worth the effort any time of the year.
Sculpture by the Sea is Australia’s largest annual outdoor sculpture exhibition and each year it showcases ephemeral works that both compliment and contrast the surrounding landscape of the coastal walk. The concept for Sculpture by the Sea came to fruition following a notion that Sydney needed a publicly accessible visual arts event and has evolved over the years. Today there is over 100 impressive contemporary works by artists from Australia and around the globe.
