Getting to Bronte Beach, Bronte

Where Is It?

Bronte Beach is located between Bronte Road and Bayview Street / Bronte Marine Drive along Sydney’s eastern coastline. Connect to Bronte Road from Carrington Road via Syd Enfield Drive.

The Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk also passes through here, with Bronte Park backing onto the beach. Through the park there is access from Murray Street, Hewlett Street and Bayview Street, as well as Bronte Road.


The 440 stops on Bronte Road while the 360 & 362 stop on Hewlett Street.


The best street address is Bronte Rd, Bronte NSW 2024.


Like most of the beaches in the eastern suburbs parking is mainly a streetside affair. Bayview Street off Bronte Marine Drive has some parking as does Bronte Road, although the proximity to the cafes makes it difficult. You can sometimes find good metered parking at the end of Bronte Road where it meets Macpherson Street and the rock formations make it a shared pedestrian zone.
