Walking Track Description

This is the most famous, most walked track in Sydney, no question, and for good reasons. Sure, it’s easy to get to, and passes between two of Australia’s best-known beaches, Bondi and Bronte. And sure, it’s a great place for celebrity spotting, or being seen.

But it’s the sunny, coastal views that bring walkers by the busload, that inspire and lighten the soul. There are few things more satisfying than watching the South Pacific Ocean roll and crash against the line of coves and beaches extending south from Bondi to La Perouse on to the entrance to Botany Bay. There are many incredible vantage points and photo opps along the way, the most popular being the sandstone lookout at Hunter Park, about halfway from Bondi to Bronte.

The path is mostly sealed, and with the exception of some rocky patches, and a steep set of stairs, is a very leisurely stroll.

Finally, if you’re after a longer coastal walk, try the 14km return walk from Clovelly to Maroubra.
