The final leg of the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk starts with the traverse from Clovelly Beach to Gordon’s Bay.

Gordon’s Bay is famous for it’s underwater trail, a submerged dive track that takes divers through an abundance of reefs and marine life. As you turn through Bundock Park you’ll see the entrance to this track indicated by a sign. Unfortunately, unless you brought a snorkel and some flippers, you might have to forgo this until next time.

The track around Gordon’s Bay is a big uphill, then down, then up again. It’s probably the steepest part of the track and there isn’t a lot of room in the middle to take a break unless you head down to the beach.

Gordon's Bay

The beach is tiny and there are no lifeguards, but will suffice if you are desperate for a swim. As you make your way up the hill you’ll probably be feeling the burn. That’s OK, there’s respite on the way in the form of Dunningham Reserve.

At first glance, Dunningham Reserve looks like a flat expanse of green, but probe a little deeper and you’ll find sculpture, art, a religious offering, and the exceptionally well hidden Giles Baths.

From here it’s an easy walk down to the Coogee Beach. Coogee has a vibrant promenade, bustling nightlife and plenty to eat (and drink). Reward yourself with some fish and chips from the kiosk in Goldstein Park or head to the beach for a final dip.
