Getting To The Bondi To Coogee Coastal Walk


Where Is It?

The Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk is a 6 kilometer scenic suburban beach walk along Sydney’s eastern coast. It is part of the Coastal Walk that extends as far as Maroubra Beach and even Botany Bay National Park in La Perouse, although the walk to Coogee will probably suit most casual walkers.

The Bondi to Coogee Trail starts just south of Bondi Beach near Bondi Icebergs. the closest street address is Notts Avenue, Bondi Beach.

Route


Distance and Length

The Bondi to Coogee walk is 6 kilometres of winding coastal track, and can be completed in 2 hours. Allowing for 3 will give you plenty of time to take photos, stop for drink breaks, and maybe even have a dip.

Walk Difficulty – Moderate

Thousands of joggers, dog walkers and sightseers traverse this walk every day, so it’s no surprise that it is well maintained. The trail is usually cement path, occasionally metal gang walk or wooden slats for specific areas where the natural environment requires an elevated traverse. The walk is casual but can be busy.

What should I pack?

Sunscreen and a hat are a necessity. The area is coastal and exposed across the entire track, so the sun will be on you the whole time.

You also might want to bring some water. However there are plenty of spots to pick up a drink (and refill your water bottle) along the way.

Shoes

A good pair of joggers or sand shoes is all you need. Some folks manage in thongs or sandals but keep in mind that the coastal area is hilly and there are many steps both up and down.

Bronte Beach Sydney

Swimming

Bring a towel and swim trunks. The water is an agreeable temperature just about any time of year but particularly between October and March.

Sights

The Bondi to Coogee Walk is almost exclusively along the coast, with the vast Pacific Ocean to the east and the rising suburban sprawl of the eastern suburbs to the west.

The Bondi to Coogee track offers several high vantage points, such as Marks Park, where grand panoramas can be enjoyed. This is probably one of the most photographed areas of Sydney, and it’s easy to see why.

Photo Opportunities

The track has several natural stopping points along the route, both on the track and in form of beaches, bays and parks.

Other Notes

Though it can get crowded on the track in peak season and weekends, overall this is a relaxed walk. Go with some friends or family, bring the dog (they are allowed on the track just not on the beaches) and make sure to stop and enjoy scenery. This is a truly unique experience and one you’re unlikely to forget.
