Theres a lot more to Bondi than its worlds most famous beach.
Bondis name derives from the Aboriginal word Bondi or Boondi meaning water breaking over rocks. Steeped in surfing history, the suburb houses the oldest surf life saving club in the world.
Today, youll find backpackers, body buffs and beach-goers parading its graffitied promenades and crystal coastal walks. Beyond the beachfront, locals sip on almond-milk lattes and bask in breakfast bowls.
During the warmer months, take a dip into the big blue or make a splash at the infamous Iceberg pool.
The suburb also plays host to a variety of activities throughout the year. Survey sculptures with the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition or break a sweat in the City2Surf fun run.
Brave the Bondi Road traffic and youll also find major shopping hubs in Bondi Junction.
Dont let the boozing backpackers put you off, come winter this is a locals-only haunt.
