Things To Do


Brave The Waves And Take A Dip

Despite being only 80 meters long Tamarama has a reputation for rough swells. Tamarama SLSC has their work cut out for them with almost as many rescues each year as Bondi despite barely 1/10th the number of swimmers. Still it’s a beautiful beach and well worth a dip provided you swim between the flags.

Tamarama Beach Sydney

 Bring The Board Down Early

Tamarama is a great surfing spot, particularly in the winter or early mornings. Unfortunately surfing is prohibited during patrol hours (I guess the Lifesavers have their hands full with swimmers), but fortunately there’s good surf at nearby Mackenzies Bay or Bronte Beach.

Tamarama Beach Walk

Angle Off The Rocks

There is good fishing off both headlands at Tamarama Beach, and you’ll usually find one or two anglers around most times of the day. Make sure to follow state rules and regs and fish with appropriate safety gear.

Explore The Bondi To Coogee Walk

Tamarama Beach Park Playground

The playground is bright and modern with sunshades to keep the UV off.

The Tama kiosk & cafe is right next to the beach, and there’s covered picnic tables and a small, sunshaded playground with some unique and fun equipment for the kids. And if that’s not enough, cross the road to Tamarama Park and there’s plenty of open green space to kick a ball around or even throw a frisbee.
