Bondi Beach
Bondi Beach 
Australia's most famous beach. Beautiful people and plenty to do. 

Bondi Beach/ Bondi, Sydney (east)

Welcome to Australia’s best known suburb and beach. On any sunny day Bondi Beach is loaded with bronzed bodies, beautiful people, backpackers, and locals and tourists in cafes sipping a latte or macchiato. The beach is where overseas visitors head to on Christmas day for an orphan’s Christmas, it’s the venue for the annual New Year’s Eve rave party, and the finishing point for one of Australia’s best known runs – the City to Surf in August. It is home to the Bondi Icebergs, several swim festivals, a film festival, an international kite festival, and a coastal sculpture exhibition. And if you can’t wait for a festival, then road test the Bondi to Bronte walk for an example of some of the best scenery Sydney has to offer.
Surfing, healthy food, coffee and bars are a staple here. To an outsider, the cafes can come across as having a bit of a "I am hot and I know it" scene.

 The suburb is also one of the most cosmopolitan with large numbers of Russian, Jewish, and backpacker communities. Bondi/Bondi Beach attracts anyone and everyone: singles, couples, the young, the old, professionals, ferals, empty nesters, retirees, pensioners, gays and lesbians, short term visitors, long term visitors, surfers, the list goes on and on and on. Architecturally, Bondi and Bondi Beach have plenty of apartment blocks dating from the 1930’s onwards - some nice, some not so nice.  Overall, you'll never be bored in Bondi.
