There’s nothing like starting a relaxed weekend with a wintry stroll across the cliff-tops overlooking one of our favourite stretches of coastline on the Bondi to Bronte walk. The bonus of winter by the beach: fewer crowds, and the chance of spotting a migrating southern wright whale.
Insider’s tip: If you’re taking the kids and want to skip the stairs at the start of the walk near Bondi Icebergs, head down Sandridge St (off Bondi Rd), turn left onto Fletcher St, walk across Marks Park at the end of the road et voilà – you’ll hit the walk on top of the headland with stunning ocean views across to Bondi. Enjoy.
After dark: While you’re in Bondi, we’re also loving the slightly surreal feeling of ice-skating by the beach at the Winter Alpine Festival with its themed music nights, and Torvill and Dean-style performances on the weekends.Images: Stuart Cohen and Tsubibo.
