Day 23: The Things You Can See at Bondi

Day 23: Bondi to Bronte Walk

Day 23: Bondi to Bronte Walk

Oh, glorious day. The sun was super bright today in Sydney, so Pat & I took it upon ourselves to do the Bondi to Bronte seaside walk. Excellent choice! We were met with clear skies, beautiful waters and a cool breeze during the 2.5 km (or is it 3.5 km?) walk each way. I’ll be writing a detailed account of what this famous walk entails over on WhyGo Australia, but I wanted to take the time to talk more about what it is that you actually see from time to time over at Bondi Beach.

>> Read my write-up of the Bondi to Bronte walk

1. Surfers, hot surfers, and more surfers.

Surfers congregate at Bondi to catch some waves, but it almost seems as though a lot of them are just there to hang out in the water on their boards.

2. Girls in swimsuits.

I think it’s funny the perception of what’s acceptable in normal life, and what goes at the beach. Women lay out with their tops off and walk around in close to nothing and it’s normal. Do the same around town and you wouldn’t be so classy.

3. Bondi Rescue lifeguards saving the day.

A popular television show here is called Bondi Rescue and it follows the Bondi lifeguards doing their jobs. This show of course is marketed to showing viewers what NOT to do while at the beach, so don’t do anything that will get on it. Since these guys are the real deal, you can possibly come across a filming of the series.

4. Bondi Vet’s Chris Brown catching waves.

Another popular show here is Bondi Vet, a series about a hunky male veterinarian in the Bondi suburb. Oh yes, he cares for animals, and he loves to surf. You just might see him down at the beach one day.

5. Sharks.

Uhm, yes… I haven’t. I don’t want to. But, it’s possible.

6. Skateboarders at the skate park.

There’s a lot going on over at Bondi. They’ve built it up to a point where it even has a little skate park for all of your skating needs.

7. Fishermen off the rocks.

I’m not sure how good the fishing is over at Bondi, but you catch sight of a number of guys hanging out on the rocks with poles. My boyfriend looked on green with envy the entire walk.

8. People having sex in public.

Hey, you might even get lucky and score views of people having sex in public. I happened upon this near the beginning of the walk. There was a hill that had some benches on top that Pat and I went to in order to catch a great view. I turned, saw, turned around and told Pat that I think those people in the trees where having sex. He turned, saw, turned back, confirmed, and then we walked back down the hill laughing.

What an eventful day.

    Omg I can’t believe you saw people having sex haha, isn’t that a pretty wide-open place?

    I have done the walk a couple of times I think once from Bondi to Bronte and once from Coogee to Bronte, it’s beautiful!!

      Well it wasn’t exactly on the beach, but it was just off the path from Bondi to Bronte. Still weird.

    Great post! This is one of my favorite things about Sydney! Sorry to say I never saw anyone having sex the times I’ve done the cliff hike so now I’ll have to go back. There used to be a guy that lived on the rocks out there and had a pretty sweet view of the ocean and Bondi. He had a little table, tarp, books, pipe, and all he needed. Did you see him? I wonder if he’s still there?

      Hmm… can’t say I saw that guy, but he sounds pretty awesome 🙂

    I’m all about the hot surfers 😉 Not so much the sharks though, lol… But now I definitely want to do this walk when I (HOPEFULLY) get the chance to travel down under 🙂

      Yeah, not a fan of sharks 😉 I hope you get to make it Oz and do the walk!

    I heard a lot of nice things abot Bondi Beach, but never made it there myself when I was in Sydney. Still regret not going there when I had the change. At least they where trying to hide between the tree’s, I once saw a couple in the middle of the beach getting it on. Its hard not to laugh when you suddenly see things like that 🙂

    Hi Brooke

    If your not a fan of sharks I would not come any where near Perth at the moment, we seem to be having a shark plague!! Four fatal attacks in three months. One was just of Cottesloe Beach and a american was taken of Rottnest Island not long ago. I’m choosing very carefully where I swim at the moment. lol.

    ps. Love your blog 😉

      Ah! Well I’ll stay away from Perth beaches at the moment 🙂 And thanks for stopping by!
