The suburb’s name is thought to be a modification of the Aboriginal word, Bondi, which is translated to mean ‘water breaking over the stones’. In the suburb’s rich history, the key attractions are the iconic Bondi Beach and the shopping centre conveniently located at Bondi Junction.

It is impossible to visit Bondi without stopping by Bondi Beach. This pristine white beach is Australia’s most famous beach and for a good reason. Whether you love swimming, surfing, or just relaxing on the sand, Bondi Beach does not disappoint.

Bronte Beach is just ten minutes from Bondi and is a popular family destination thanks to its sheltered natural pool. Mackenzies Beach is the place to be for those needing a secluded getaway. Its proximity to residential apartments means it does get populated during weekends and public holidays.

Bondi Baths, located at the southern end of Bondi Beach, is another iconic landmark in the suburb. Visitors can enjoy swimming at the baths, and kids can splash about in the kid’s pool.

Nature enthusiasts will enjoy the scenic Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, while art lovers can visit the Coo-ee Aboriginal Art Gallery. For those who love retail therapy, Westfield Bondi Junction is an expansive centre whose hundreds of stores promise a most exciting shopping experience.

Plan to tour its attractions to experience all that Bondi has to offer. Look out for events, festivals and sports activities hosted here annually. Accommodation is readily available in Bondi, with options at the beach being the most popular. The suburb is served by train on the Eastern suburb lines and buses from the city.
