#4 Sydneysider – Bondi to Coogee Walk

Waverley to Bronte to Coogee to Bronte to Bondi to Waverley.  Absolutely exhausted, but after many years of wanting to do it, I finally did the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk; well to be pedantic Coogee to Bondi,  plus a wee bit more.  It’s a 6 km walk from Bondi to Coogee, the path hugging stunning cliffs and beaches, but according to Runkeeper I managed an impressive 15km.

It was a perfect day for it, gorgeous blue skies and huge crashing waves.

WOW!!!!

 

Waverley Cemetery

I joined the walk just before the Waverley Cemetery and headed towards Coogee.  These tombstones are probably housed on the most expensive real estate in Sydney.

Palm Trees and Graves :oS

What views!!!

 

Clovelly Bay

Clovelly is one of the many gorgeous bays I passed.  I wasn’t brave enough today, but in a few weeks time this would be a great place to take a dip or snorkel in search of large blue gropers.

Anyone for a swim?

Coogee

By the time I reached Coogee, I had a very growly belly, so I satisfied the hunger pangs with a “All Day Breakfast” at The Coogee Bite Cafe.  Yum yum!!!

Bronte Beach

Failed desperately to get a decent piccie of the surfers at Bronte.  After a hundred attempts (ok maybe a slight exaggeration) my camera decided to die on me :o(

Bondi Beach

The last stretch to Bondi is full of body perfect joggers and locals walking their dogs.  I managed to squeeze one last photo out of my dying camera.

I couldn’t do this walk without any photos of the iconic beach of Bondi.

Last shot before my camera run out of juice :oS

Info: The Bondi to Coogee Walk is an easy walk.  One way is 6km, taking approximately 2 hours (including time to take piccies).  Check out the 131500 website for the latest transport details on getting to Bondi.  There are plenty of cafes/kiosks on route if your stomach gets as growly as mine.

Also every year around October/November there is an outdoor art exhibition, Sculpture By The Sea, which adds a new dimension to the walk between Bondi and Tamarama Bay.
