Thilha Coogee to Bondi
Sydney is a unique city, combining urban life, lots of entertainment and diverse events with life in direct contact with nature. And the traveler who wants to know the capital of the state of New South Wales (New South Wales) needs to make a unique trail, the most famous Coast Walk between the beaches of Coogee and Bondi.
But when you think about “hiking” immediately there are many ascents and descents, various obstacles, sometimes it kills closed and in the end the participants put their “tongue out” from being so tired.
But calm down! Coogee to Bondi is the most delicious trail I’ve ever done! In addition to a wonderful look, everything is very quiet, organized, paved and without much sacrifice.
The tourist definitely enjoys the walk without dying of fatigue.
The route from Coogee to Bondi or Bondi to Coogee is one of the most famous tours in Sydney. This trail is always in the TOP 10 for those who visit the city, or simply chose to live on it (history of many Brazilians).
So let’s go to the details and curiosities of this route.
We started the trail in Coogee and chose to start there for the simple fact of having better logistics (for us it was more advantageous because we live in Surry Hills). To get to this region of the Coast Walk we took a bus leaving Elizabeth Street and it took us to Coogee (if you want to start with Bondi, it’s simple: just take a bus to this neighborhood). Through the NSW Transport website you can see the schedule and schedule your tour.
We left the center for Coogee on a Sunday morning. We arrived at the beach and soon identified where we would have to get off (the tip is: use Google Maps on your phone, it helps you know how far the bus gets off – God save Google Maps! Lol).
We left for the adventure soon.
We started at Coogge beach, as I said, and soon we were already walking towards Dolphins Point and the Bali Memorial. On that tip of Coogee Beach we could have an overview of this beach and take some good pictures.
The weather on that day was not much, but we still faced the trail.
From this point we head towards Clovelly Beach, but first we pass through Gordons Bay, another important point on this coastal trail.
Some stairs (only going down, whew!) And we arrived at Clovelly Beach. There we find a natural swimming pool, a well-structured recreational space, the Clovelly beach and a beautiful public area for the use of the population. The beach is so cool that it even has stairs to access the sea. It is almost a natural pool … or rather it is!
And right there on the side we find another point on the trail, Bundock Park. This is part of the complex I mentioned above.
We went through the park and what came next was surprising: a cemetery in the middle of the trail – Warverley Cemetery. Yes, a cemetery! Believe! In Sydney you can die and live forever facing the sea lol. In the middle of this trail there is a huge space where this cemetery works and the path passes right in the middle of it. Everything very clean, organized and quiet.
Some tombs here, others there, we followed our route. Next stop: Bronte Park. At that moment it started to rain and lunchtime knocked on the door. So, we made a technical stop and went to the center of Bronte to have lunch.
We spend about 40 minutes at 1 hour there, enough time for the rain to stop and, for our happiness, the fog comes out.
After lunch and with the energy recharged, we continue from the center of Bronte to the beach of the same name. The sky was clearer and the photos from then on started to look fantastic with the scenery.
In Bronte we met many surfers in the water, and so it went on to Bondi. Many waves, surfers, the weather is getting better and we keep walking.
A few more minutes and we reach Tamarama, another beach along the way.
From this point up to Bondi, our final destination would be a short jump, were it not for the desire to make the most of the landscape and take lots of pictures.
In an eventual walk between these two beaches without technical stops, the traveler can do it in less than 10 minutes.
Until Bondi, we still pass Marks Park and Hunter Park.
From Bronte Beach to Bondi is approximately 3.5 km.
Photos and more photos and soon we were arriving at the most famous pool in Australia, Bondi Icebergs Pool. This place is a real affront to the eyes. Merging pictures of the sea with this natural pool is beautiful to see and live. The pool is open to the public and has an admission fee of $ 6.50 (adults). The water in the pool is the same as the sea. Yes! A salt water pool.
Bondi Icebergs Pool:
- Monday 6am – 6:30 pm
- Tuesday 6am – 6:30 pm
- Wednesday 6am – 6:30 pm
- Closed picisna farm for cleaning
- Friday 6am – 6:30 pm
- Saturday 6:30 am – 6:30 pm
- Sunday 6:30 am – 6:30 pm
Right there in this pool there is a complex with a restaurant and bar. Enjoy! If it is not a day at the pool, it can be a day for a nice snack or lunch by the sea.
And finally, we were in Bondi Park and after going down some stairs we arrived at Bondi Beach, or rather we literally put our foot in the sand.
This is the most famous beach in Sydney, and in the summer it is almost impossible to walk on it for so many tourists and visitors.
There you can find a beautiful boardwalk with graffiti, and the seaside a structure of restaurants and shops for all tastes.
At that point our script for the day was finished. We took advantage of each step taken on this trail and took many pictures.
Tip: if you can choose where to start the trail, choose to start at Coogee, as the entire route to Bondi is basically going down or walking on the same level, and obviously the opposite is going up and much more tiring.
Although the walk starting in Bondi and ending in Coogee is best known, we prefer to walk in the other direction. In addition to the ease of the route I mentioned above, there is also a great revelation on arrival at Bondi Beach. Everything gets more exciting when you finish it! That way you can close the walk with a flourish. Another interesting detail is that there are more options to enjoy food and drink in Bondi than Coogee. Once you’ve reached your final destination, time to rest and enjoy.
Here’s the tip!
An unmissable tour for those who enjoy beautiful scenery is the walk that takes between Coogee and Bondi beaches. She gives a taste of what the Sydney coastline looks like and masterfully represents Australia’s natural beauty.
The walk between the two beaches is about 6km long and can be done in less than two hours, but the truth is that doing it more slowly, stopping to take pictures and diving on the beaches makes the tour even more special.
The hike can start in both Coogee and Bondi, anyone who does not want to do the entire journey can even start halfway, for example, in Bronte. The traditional route is between Coogee and Bondi, passing through the beaches of Clovelly, Bronte and Tamarama – one more beautiful than the other, difficult to choose a favorite. The level of difficulty of the trail is easy, it is practically all paved, but it has stairs, some climbs and descents, so it is not recommended for those with limited mobility. Source
- Distance: 6km
- Time: 2 – 3 hours
- Difficulty: Easy level
- Public Transport: Regular buses
- Bathrooms: Yes
- Places to swim: All beaches have areas for diving. Always dive between the flags
