Coogee to Bondi Coastal Walk, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

No doubt, Sydney is a beautiful city and there are plenty of reasons why, but the famous Bondi to Coogee walk is what makes me so envious of the people who called this city home.

A magnificent cliff top coastal walk in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, another free thing to do and all you needed is a pair of comfortable shoes, a hat, a sunscreen, bottled water and a determination to finish the 6 km walk that usually takes two hours to complete. I find the overall terrain relatively easy, with few staircases and steep paths, and abundance of stunning cliff and ocean views. Getting lost is impossible as the trail is properly marked and easy to follow, but you may find your self stopping a lot to take in the beautiful views.

I decided to do it on the reverse, starting at Coogee and ending in Bondi, with the reason that I wanted to hang out at Bondi Beach afterwards. I boarded a bus at the stop nearby the Central Station, the closest to where I was staying and arrived at the early morning peaceful view of Coogee Beach.

A series of steps from Coogee beach lead me to a small elevated park, view of Giles Baths and Dunningham Reserve, then I continued to follow the path forward until I reached Gordon’s Bay.

Continue walking the trail will lead to Clovelly Beach which marks as one of the stopping point of the coastal walk. From Clovelly, the walk will continue towards Bronte Beach, another highlighted stopping point passing by one of the most beautiful cemetery location wise, the Historic Waverly Cemetery. A sandstone cliffs and rock platforms on this leg of the walk is the perfect place to rest for a while.

I walked along the joggers which are making their way to Tamarama or maybe returning back. I love running and I am envious of the people who get to run on this amazing trail everyday. The walk on this part of Bronte-Tamarama is level and perhaps the easiest and most relax, but not lacking of magnificent ocean view.

After few minutes, I finally reached Tamarama and continued the walk towards the last part and perhaps the most famous stop, the Bondi Beach.

The Icebergs Pool is the iconic Bondi sight, but the graffiti wall nearby the parking area is what gives the beach scene the youthful and colorful vibe.

“Noise made by sea waves breaking on the beach” which in contemporary English language translated to the word “surf”, gives the perfect definition to what Bondi Beach is.
