Bondi To Coogee Coastal Walk Guide

Bondi To Coogee Coastal Walk Guide

The Bondi to Coogee walk is one of the most popular scenic routes in the country. With locals and tourists flocking daily, here’s a complete guide.

How To Get To Bondi Beach

Access to parking at Bondi Beach can be difficult, plus starting at Bondi and finishing at Coogee can cause problems.

So we recommend taking public transport to Bondi, doing the walk, then catching public transport home from Coogee.

From the city the easiest way to get to Bondi Beach is to catch the train to Bondi junction (from Central, Town Hall, Martin Place) then change to the 380, 381, 382 or 333 bus at Bondi Junction for a 15 minute ride to the beach.

If you are visiting Sydney and the surrounding regions, an Opal card is the most convenient and affordable way to pay for your fares on public transport.

You can use an Opal card on the metro, train, bus, ferry and light rail services.

For those short on time, or those that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

In total the walk is 6km.

It’s a fairly flat and straight forward walk sticking to the coast with slight up hill walks in parts.

It takes roughly 2 hours without stops.

Although you’ll want to dip in the baths/ocean along the way and take plenty of photos.

What To Expect On The Bondi To Coogee Walk

An awesome day out with stunning views!

The Bondi to Coogee walk was one of the highlights of our stay in Sydney and we set off early one morning to beat the crowds and avoid the heat!

Although the Bondi to Coogee walk is pretty straight forward, we recommend comfy shoes. Also be sure to take a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water! Although there are plenty of water fountains along the way too if you run out!

The start of the walk begins pretty much from the Bondi Icebergs pool. Simply follow the steps up to the concrete waterfront walkway on Notts Avenue and you’ll be good to go.

We could go on to explain every aspect of our day and talk you through our step by step experience, but we feel like the epicness of the walk is portrayed way better through images. So we’re just going to show you instead.
