Bondi Beach has a unique culture and vibrancy. Steeped in surfing history, Bondi Beach is as much a celebrity as the A-listers who frequent the famous beach. Cult TV shows have been created around the local surf life-saving club that services beach-goers that can swell to thousands on a warm day.
The neighbourhood itself is a very lively one, where locals live normal (stylish) lives. The ‘hipster vibe’ is also quite prominent, as can see by the number of organic cafes, art galleries, restaurants and bars that fill the streets. The overall vibe is very laid-back.
One of Bondi Beach’s charming features is its ability to make people from all walks of life feel welcome. Whether it’s families or house-sharing 20-somethings, fitness fanatics, hipsters, travellers, creatives, trendies, expats or celebrities – they all call Bondi Beach home.
The star attraction is the actual beach which is busy year-round. Surfers hit the waves no matter the weather. Festivals and markets dominate on weekends, and the Bondi Icebergs Club is the iconic place to be at the southern end of the beach. It’s also not uncommon to see migrating whales capturing the attention of the crowds on the headlands.
THE COASTAL WALK
The much-walked trail that hugs the coastline between Bondi Beach and Coogee to the south and Bondi Beach to Watsons Bay to the north is one of the most popular walks in the greater Sydney region.
THE RESTAURANTS & CAFES
Away from the beach a profusion of cafés, restaurants and bars line Campbell Parade and surrounding streets. Although Campbell Street is where the tourists gather, step into one of the backstreets and you’ll find the locals. Whether it’s an established hangout or a pop-up catering to the latest health fad, the laid-back scene has left its mark on Sydney’s foodie scene.
Bondi real estate is a jumble sale of abodes from plenty of eras, in various states of repair, while new apartment blocks spring up alongside beautiful old art deco buildings.
