Doing Sydney’s Bondi to Coogee Walk

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]What could be better than relaxing on the beach all day, doing nothing and tanning in the burning sun? Right – relaxing on four different beaches and taking a stroll alongside the beautiful Sydney coastline while even doing a little for your fitness. The Bondi to Coogee Walk is probably the most famous coastal walk in Sydney – for a reason. Parks, beaches, cliffs and lookouts are all part of the journey. Your Instagram feed will be taken care of for the next 3 months.

Having heard of the walk before, I was excited to hear that I would have the opportunity to join Ana and a group of WTC members on their day trip. The day started off at the Wake Up Hostel, where we picked up everyone that was coming along. We took the train from Central Station to Bondi Junction Station and continued by bus to Bondi Beach. From there on, there was a 3 hour long walk ahead of us. Here are some of my favourite things to lookout for on the Bondi to Coogee Walk:

  1. The Bondi Icebergs

This Swimming Club is pretty hard to fail as you will walk right past it at the very beginning. The Bondi Baths are open all year around and are stunning to look at. Especially when a waves from the ocean come crushing on its edge.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_single_image media=”32486″ media_width_percent=”100″][vc_column_text]

  1. Beaches and Parks

Tamarama, Bronte, and Clovelly – Literally every beach on the way is inviting you to stay and relax for a while. Both Tamarama and Bronte Beach also boast pretty parks with cafes and spots to sit right next to the ocean.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image media=”32487″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image media=”32502″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

  1. Waverly Cemetery

Even though it is a cemetery, Waverly Cemetery is beautiful to look at. The structure and mostly white gravestones and vaults give this place a certain intimidating yet peaceful vibe.

Other interesting things we came across on the walk include Gordon’s Bay and – surprisingly – the Clovelly Bowling club where we could witness people playing a weird game nobody knew the name of – Lawn Bowls.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_single_image media=”32501″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]By now I have walked the six kilometres four times already, and not once was it boring. There is always something I hadn’t noticed the other times before and that looks different when the weather changes. Personally, I find the walk quite easy to walk . The last bit (Clovelly to Coogee) is the hardest one. There are many steep stairs and an ascent that is a few 100 meters long.

Six kilometres later we arrived at Coogee Beach where Ana and I went to prepare a BBQ for everyone since there are public grills available at the park in Coogee. We surely deserved some burgers after all that walking.

Last but not least, here are 5 things that come in handy on the Bondi to Coogee Walk:

  1. Sunscreen

Going for a tanned look is good and all, but please don’t forget to put on and bring your sunscreen as you will be in the sun for a few hours. The sun in Oz should really not be underestimated – I’m speaking from experience.

  1. Light jacket or scarf

Depending on when you plan do the walk it might be good to bring a light jacket that you can tie around your waist as it can get a little windy sometimes because of the ocean.

  1. Comfortable shoes

This one is pretty self-explanatory since you’re going for a walk. But a pair of flip-flops/thongs for the beach might be a good idea as well!

  1. Water

Hydrate! I recommend bringing a reusable 1 litre bottle as there are some spots on the walk where you can refill it with water for free.

  1. Swimwear

Also depending on when you plan to go you might want to take a dip into the water at one (or all) of the beaches, so swimwear should be on your packing list.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image media=”32504″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image media=”32506″ media_width_percent=”100″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
