Bondi Beach was once described by Leo Schofield, a celebrated commentator, as a 'beautiful, stupendous parabola of solf gold sand flanked at either end by great cliffs of sandstone' does not go without merit.
This great sand and surf icon is fast becoming known as one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Those who don't know much about Sydney would certainly have heard of this beach which is famous for its surfing waves and Christmas celebrations. Die hard party goers have flocked down to this famous beach each Christmas to celebrate in gusto and abandonment. If you are thinking of heading down the beach during this festive season be sure to go down early to secure a good spot. Police presence will be heavy during this time of the year but the atmosphere is generally relax and fun.
Another popular celebration is the City to Surf race which is one of Australia's biggest foot race. The event is held in August and finishes in Bondi Park. The Festival of the Winds which is a great kite-flying carnival has both local and international kite flying competitors competing with one another is also a crowd pleaser. Watch for this event during the September month.
You can lie on the white sands and go to sleep or read a book. As usual it is good practise to play it safe by wearing a hat, sunglasses and sun block. It is generally not advisable to sun bake under the sun from between 10am to 1pm as the sun is at its zenith so go after or before this time. Be on the look out for picnic shelters.
Walk along Campbell Parade where restaurants and cafes will offer from anything from seafood to pizzas. A short walk along the cliff walk will lead to an equally dazzling sight that is the Tamarama and Bonte beach.

TIP: The easiest way to get to Bondi Beach is to take the train from Central Terminal Station down to Bondi Junction then pick up the number 380 bus to Bondi Beach. If you are thinking of driving there, then drive from the city via Oxford Street and follow along Bondi Road which soon becomes Campbell Parade. Kerbside parking is available but very rare and paid parking is available in Bondi Park.
