Bronte Baths In Sydney Guide

Bronte Baths In Sydney Guide

A perfect place to catch sunrise or to cool off on a hot sunny day. Bronte Baths Sydney was one of our favourite spots, so here’s a guide to visiting.

How To Get To Bronte Baths Sydney

Bronte Baths are located to the far right hand side of Bronte Beach.

The best way to get to Bronte Baths from the city is to catch the train/bus to Bondi Junction and switch to the 379 local bus.

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. 

The other option if you’re short for time is to grab an Uber, which are super easy and convenient to use for getting around Sydney.

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.

Best Time To Visit + Tips

The best time to visit Bronte Baths is between October – March. These months generally offer sunny weather, while avoiding the heat of mid-summer and school holiday crowds.

Bronte Baths is still a less popular option than its competitor over at Bondi Icebergs. However, as with anywhere in Sydney the best time to visit is always earlier in the morning!

What To Expect At Bronte Baths Sydney

A perfect place to take a dip and cool off whilst relaxing at Bronte Beach.

Bronte Baths Sydney is sheltered from the ocean, yet still filled with its salty waves. It’s an ideal place to go for dip anytime from sunrise through to sunset. 

We headed down a couple of times on our visit to Sydney. Once during a picnic day spent at Bronte Beach, and another time, we stopped off during our Bondi to Coogee walk!

The pool is big enough for those advanced swimmers to practise their lengths, yet shallow enough at points for families to take their youngsters.

The colours of blue compliment the coastline from above and there is an awesome little Bronte Baths viewpoint that seems to be a pretty popular Instagram spot in Sydney. Simply head to the end of the walk way and climb up the rocks to find it!

Bronte Baths Sydney is similar to the very popular Bondi Icebergs Pool, although this gem is completely free.

It’s also a great alternative to spend the day with friends and watch the waves crash against the rocks, whilst soaking in the Australian sun.
