STREETSCAPES // bondi to coogee
by A NOTE FOR ME
Or maybe I should call this post coastscapes? There are plenty of great sights on the streets of these beachside suburbs, but it’s still the beautiful coastline that always steals the show for me.
I feel so grateful that I can regularly take the Bondi to Coogee Walk and it still takes my breath away, especially on a clear winter’s day. Walking down to Bondi and pausing at Bondi Icebergs to take in the stunning views of North Bondi through to Bondi Baths. Then it’s onward with the 6km path through the carved cliffs of Tamarama until reaching Bronte with its picturesque beach and great cafés.
The coastal walk continues to Clovelly which feels entirely different again – for me it’s reminiscent of a European beach situated in a bay surrounded by rocky ridges. Getting back to nature through the lush vegetation revealing the secluded Gordon’s Bay with crystal clear, aqua blue waters. It’s no surprise that this is a protected aquatic reserve and also has an underwater trail, making it a popular dive spot. Reluctant to leave this pristine paradise but the final destination is Coogee which is the quintessential Sydney scene. It has all the makings of a classic with the gorgeous beach and historic ocean baths, within proximity of the promenade with an assortment of restaurants and hotels.
The path keeps going all the way to Maroubra but it’s time to stop and take it all in (feeling very blessed to live here). I also have to summon the energy to walk all the way back home!
