Sydney – Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach

Our last hike in Sydney would be the Bondi Beach to Coogee Walk, a 3.5 mile walk along the coast.  We decided to start at Coogee Beach, that way we could spend some time in the afternoon at Bondi Beach. We took the train to Bondi Junction and then found the bus to take us to Coogee Beach. The beach was quiet that morning because it was a bit cooler weather and a weekday. We arrived around 8:30 and found the path to follow, a nice paved path that was clearly marked.

From Coogee Beach we walked up the steep path to Dolphin’s Point and found a great view of the entire beach with the cliffs in the distance.

Continuing along the path we made our way to Gordon’s Bay. We continued around the bay until we made our way to Forsyth Park. We decided to stop here for a little bit and enjoy a snack while watching the waves crash into the coast.  We then walked towards Clovelly Beach where there were a few swimmers snorkeling and one in the pool next to the water.

Once past Clovelly Beach we continued along the shore around Shark Point toward Bronte Beach to watch some of the surfers. On our way there we followed the path along the water in front of a cemetery overlooking the ocean. It was very interesting to see the cemetery go all the way to the edge and the path was recently built so people didn’t have to walk all the way around the cemetery. A short while later we arrived at Tamaramara Beach to be welcomed by the Sculptures by the Sea. This was an event that we had seen online but didn’t know what to expect.

The exhibit continued the rest of the way from Tamaramara Beach all the way to Bondi Beach. While this was nice to enjoy the different sculptures, it made the walk very crowded with lots of people checking out the sculptures.

After weaving our way through people and the exhibit we finally made it to Bondi Beach.

We decided we would find a bench to enjoy a snack and enjoy a little time by the beach. The water was still quite cold at about sixty five degrees and we didn’t bring any swimsuits. We spent some time enjoying the warmer weather and watching all of the people before we decided we would walk back to the train station at Bondi Junction. Little did we know we were in for quite a walk up hill almost the entire way. We decided next time we would walk from the train to the beach and take a bus back up if we came back.
