Bondi To Coogee Coastal Walk – A Complete Guide

The Bondi to Coogee walk is one of the most popular and scenic routes in the country. Locals and tourists love it. Here’s a complete guide.

How To Get To Bondi Beach

Access to parking at Bondi Beach can be difficult, plus starting at Bondi and finishing at Coogee can cause problems.

So we recommend taking public transport to Bondi, doing the walk, then catching public transport home from Coogee.

From the city the easiest way to get to Bondi Beach is to catch the train to Bondi junction (from Central, Town Hall, Martin Place) then change to the 380, 381, 382 or 333 bus at Bondi Junction for a 15 minute ride to the beach.

If you are visiting Sydney and the surrounding regions, an Opal card is the most convenient and affordable way to pay for your fares on public transport.

You can use an Opal card on the metro, train, bus, ferry and light rail services.

For those short on time, or those that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

Bondi To Coogee Walk Distance

In total the walk is approximately 6km.

It’s a fairly flat and straight forward walk, sticking to the coast with slight up hill walks in parts.

How Long Does The Bondi To Coogee Walk Take

It takes roughly 2 hours without stops.

Although you’ll want to dip in the baths/ocean along the way and take plenty of photos.

Best Time To Do The Bondi To Coogee Walk

The hottest months in Sydney are December to February. January has the hottest temperatures with average daily maximums reaching 27° -28°C.

So, if you are visiting during this time we would recommend setting off early to avoid the hottest part of the day.

Although the Bondi to Coogee walk is pretty straight forward and easy terrain, we would recommend wearing comfy shoes.

Also, be sure to take a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water! Although, there are, conveniently, plenty of water fountains along the way if you run out and need a refill.

Take your time and enjoy all the beautiful spots along the way.

What To Expect On The Bondi To Coogee Walk

An awesome day out with stunning views and a variety of great stopping places along the way!

The Bondi to Coogee walk was definitely one of the highlights of our stay in Sydney.

We set off bright and early in the morning to beat the crowds and try and avoid the midday heat!

The start of the walk begins pretty much from the Bondi Icebergs pool. Simply follow the steps up to the concrete waterfront walkway on Notts Avenue and you’ll be good to go.

We could go on to explain every aspect of our day and talk you through our step by step experience, but we feel like the ‘epicness’ of the walk is portrayed way better through images.

So we’re just going to show you how the walk went instead with our photos taken along the way!
