Route Notes

Where Do I Start?

This walk is the reverse of the popular Bondi To Coogee Walk, heading north instead of south, you might find it better in the afternoons when the sun is at your back.

Starting at Coogee Beach the track winds up through Dunningham Park north towards Bronte, Waverely, Tamarama and eventually Bondi Beach. Expect a busy track most times of the year, though fortunately the track is well maintained.

Walk Difficulty – Moderate

This is a suburban coastal walk, so you are never far from a restroom, cafe or kiosk. That said, the whole track is exposed, so you’ll need to take care from the sun. There are several steep inclines, as the path winds around grasslands and down to the beaches at several points. For these reasons wee give it a moderate rating, although the option to stop for a coffee wherever you like does make it easier on the knees.

What Should I Bring?

A hat and sunscreen are a must. You’ll also need decent sandshoes or sneakers and a water bottle. There’s plenty of places to fill up on the way, or buy a drink if you need to.

How Do I Get Home?

If you don’t feel like walking the circuit back there are plenty of buses from Bondi to take you back to Coogee. You can also get buses to Bondi Junction and a train to Central from there.

Tamarama Beach is one of several beaches along the walk.
