At any time of the year, Bondi Beach is a buzzing morning, late afternoon and night-time scene. Enjoy a tasty coffee and some breakfast before walking the Bondi to Coogee coastline. Take in a long, lazy lunch in one of the suburb’s excellent restaurants. Among the dining options is Sean’s Panaroma, a landmark of Bondi culture. It offers a mix of classic Italian and Australian dishes as well as superb views of the beach and ocean. At the other end of the beach, you’ll find Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, with its stunning views. Join the queue at Gelato Messina - it will give you time to make your choice from the daily ice cream specials board. Finish a perfect day in Bondi with a cocktail as you rub shoulders with popular Sydney stars who call this beachside icon home.

Surfers of all skill levels head to Bondi Beach to try out the waves. If you’re a beginner, there are several excellent surf schools that offer lessons year-round. Protected areas make it easy for novices to learn, while the more experienced surfers head to the south end of the beach.
If you prefer golfing to surfing, you can mix in a spot of whale watching between May and November from the nine-hole, cliff-top golf course.
Spend your Saturday wandering through the idyllic Bondi Farmers Market, featuring artisanal foods sold by the people who make them. Sunday morning at Bondi markets gives shoppers the opportunity to see the next big fashion designers in the making, as stallholders showcase their up and coming designs at affordable prices. Vintage finds and souvenirs are also for sale.
