Easy track
Starting from Bondi Beach, Sydney, this one-way walk takes you to Coogee Beach, visiting a number of other beaches and parks along the way. Enjoy the open views of the Tasman Sea just behind the beaches as you traverse. The beautiful vistas are everywhere, and there are useful facilities for snacks and drinks. It is one of the most popular walks around the country, visited by locals and tourists daily. You can take your time to enjoy places such as Waverly Cemetary or Bali memorial as well. Due to its popularity, it can be crowded at times. Additionally, there can be fewer shady areas, so you might want to bring sunscreen with you. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
