Bondi Beach Walk

Bondi beach is one of the most iconic and popular beaches in Australia.  Lucky for us, it is also very close and accessible from Sydney using the local train and bus (for about $7aud/person, return).  We found out that there was a nice 6km coastal walk from Bondi Beach to Congee Beach, so we decided to hop on the the train from Kings Cross to Bondi Junction, to check it out.

Since it was a weekend, we thought there might be more people on the beach than usual, but we really underestimated how busy the  bus from Bondi Junction to Bondi Beach would be.  To skip the giant line-up, decided to take a different bus that dropped us off at Tamarama Beach instead, since it was a fairly short walk away. 

We walked up the coastal trail to first do some people watching at Bondi beach, and then backtracked to Tamarama again before continuing down to Coogee Beach.  It was a perfect sunny day, but we were shocked at how packed and crowded the coastal beach walk was! 

We eventually figured out that it was because there was a free international art exhibition that weekend, called Sculpture By The Sea.  

So, our "short" daytrip took a lot longer than we were expecting, but we lucked out overall because we really enjoyed seeing all of the art pieces along the way - they made the coastal walk so much more interesting!
