From Paddington Markets we took a bus (333) to Bondi Beach which is located approximately 7km from Sydney CBD. Here people are seen surfing, sun bathing on the beach and relaxing on the rocks.
The Bondi-Bronte coastal walk stretches 3km which can be done in 1 hour. On the way there were cliffs, amazing beaches and views, parks, toilets, drinking water fountain and plenty of photo opportunities. Restaurants and cafes can be found in Bondi and Bronte.

The famous Bondi Baths have been an historical landmark of Bondi Beach for over 100 years. Featuring both a larger lap pool and smaller kid’s pool, qualified lifeguards are on patrol during opening hours all year round. The pool and clubhouse are open to both members and the public. | Website: https://icebergs.com.au

|The scenic Bondi-Bronte Coastal Walk|
Started the Bondi to Bronte walk and we came to this section where the wind was extremely strong. The force made it so hard to move forward. While the breeze was nice, the sand really gets to me. The worst part was Bernard lost his glasses. Not knowing when they went missing, we figured it would be extremely difficult to find them so we just moved on.
