Sydney’s eastern beaches stretch from Bondi down to Maroubra. Heading south from Bondi, you can walk right along the coast to its smaller, less brazen but very lively cousin Coogee, passing through gay-favourite Tamarama, family focused, café-cultured Bronte, narrow Clovelly and Gordons Bay, the latter with an underwater nature trail. Randwick Council has designed the “Coastal Walkway” from Clovelly to Coogee and beyond to more downmarket Maroubra, with stretches of boardwalk and interpretive boards detailing environmental features. A free guide can be picked up at visitor centres and downloaded at randwickcitytourism.com.au. It’s also possible to walk north all the way from Bondi to South Head along the cliffs.
