Bondi to Coogee Beach Coast Walk, Sydney
Bondi Beach in Sydney is famous worldwide for being perceived as a stereotypical Australian paradise of never-ending sun and surf. So if you get the chance to visit during summer, you should definitely pencil in a day of relaxing on the beach with your fish and chips and the odd swim or surf.
But we want to turn your attention to another fantastic reason to visit Bondi and that is the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk.
See how the other half live as you take in expansive views of the vast blue ocean and their waves crashing violently onto the rockpools below. The trail takes you past several superb beaches and parks where the well-heeled have stunning beachside residences.
This is a refreshing and invigorating way to spend a morning or afternoon and highly recommended by Triprovider. You might even see a whale or two at the right time of year!
How to get to Bondi Beach from Central Sydney? –
The easiest way from the centre of Sydney is to catch a train to Bondi Junction. Once there, go upstairs and join the line with the other tourists trying to get onto the 333 or 380 bus which take you to Bondi Beach.
From Coogee, catch the 313 back to Bondi Junction.
Use your opal card for all transport as they don’t accept cash
How long is the walk from Bondi to Coogee? –
Glad you asked! It’s a 6km trail and takes about 1.5-3 hours to complete the walk but again this depends on your speed and how long you stop at the many vistas along the way.
Triprovider took about 4 hours to complete the journey but we stopped to explore and savour every opportunity as we were in no rush and enjoyed a leisurely pace.
What is the path like? –
The trail as a whole is not particularly difficult for the average person but it takes you through many different stages and terrain so expect many ups and downs with accompanying steps along the way. If you’re not ultra fit, even with stops you will still feel like you need a good lie down when you reach the end. That’s where the pub and a cold beer come in!
It is popular with joggers, walkers, dogwalkers and bikers but it would be not advisable for those with disability or mobility issues.

It took us a while just to get out of Bondi due to the captivating views of the famous Bondi Icebergs Pools with the beach as a backdrop. People just want to linger and watch the surfers ride the waves all day. Visitors also think the Pools are for members only but anyone can use them and there is also a bar and RSL club attached for a drink or two.
From here you descend and walk alongside the coast with its crashing waves, rocky escarpments and clear rockpools. Under one of the overhanging cliffs, a woman is sat cross-legged deep in meditation.

Another beautiful surf beach with strong currents. The famous surf club which sits on rocks perched above the beach, is being renovated as we walk past for the summer months ahead.
From here we head upwards and walk along the road opposite residential houses with balconies and stunning views.
Behind it stands a nice green park for BBQ’s and relaxing. Like Bondi, it also has an Icebergs style enclosed pool (The Bronte Baths) alongside the rocky coast. Such an amazing place to be.
Another awesome wide beach, Coogee is the end for us and we are pretty knackered but have had a great time breathing in the invigorating ocean sea air.
We head for Coogee Hotel for a well deserved cold beer!
This is a highly recommended half day activity if you just want to relax, unwind, de-stress and take in some stunning ocean and beach views. And it’s free! Sydney really does have some of the best suburban beaches in Australia. Enjoy.
