The Best Hikes in Sydney

Sydney Hikes: Bondi to Coogee Beach

One of the most famous of Sydney hikes, the Bondi to Coogee Beach Walk was high on my list of treks to take. After the hike to Bradley’s Head, I was excited to see the views of the more coastal Sydney hikes. The total distance of the Bondi Coogee walk is 6 km, or 3.5 miles. If you’re not interested in a 1.5 – 2 hour walk, some people take the shorter route and just do Bondi beach to Bronte beach.

I decided to take the long way in reverse, starting from Coogee Beach, so that I could experience the dramatic reveal of Bondi.

10 am. I quickly made my way to the first coffee shop I found ( #priorities ) and picked up a coffee. I stopped in this adorable little pavilion, and ordered up my favorite, a soy cappuccino.

When you head up the hill from Coogee, you’ll get epic, cliff-side views of the ocean.

The path even leads through a cemetery overlooking the ocean.

Soon after the cemetery, you’ll come to Bronte Beach.

After a stop off at Bronte Beach, take the rest of the trail just over the hill to Bondi. This way, you’ll run into even more hidden beaches.

If you’re tired from the walk, head into Speedo’s Cafe (on the north side of the beach) for a vegan burger and green juice! It really hits the spot 😉

I highly recommend the Bondi Coogee Beach walk – it’s a must-do when you visit Sydney! See the Sydney Coastal walks website for all the details of this walk (toilet stops, water stations, etc). Also make sure to check out the Bradley’s Head walk – it has a great view of the Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge.
