Taking the tube from Sydney to Bondi Junction only costs a few dollars. From there, you need to hop on the bus that goes to Bondi Beach. That puts you right on the strip between the beach cafe's and the Bondi Beach Pavilion. Here you should fill up your water bottle and get fed, because you have a few hours of walking before you get to Cogee.
This is one of the larger beaches on the walk. During peak season you can see why it would get packed. On this summer morning however, it was anything but.
We saw these pools quite a few times, the kind that are right on the ocean. This happened to be a swim and fitness center. Perhaps they should include an occasional shark in the pool for added effect.
This walk is well worn and has paths that are filled with joggers and walkers. Pass beautiful homes that line the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean and have a taste of what life is like for those that can afford it.
Thousands of people with the best eternal view in the world, but will never get to enjoy it. A very large cemetery lines this section of the walk to Cogee. It is pretty amazing to see that much prime real estate for something that developers haven't whored out to condos or shopping malls.
The great part of this walk is having so many water refill stations all along the way. Bring a bottle and refill it every time it gets empty. Every time you do, it saves you another $3 AUD.
Unpatrolled? Maybe, but that didn't stop one sea kayaker from launching in this area to ride a few waves into the neighboring beach.
A memorial from the Bali Bombings of 2002 sits at the end of the Bondi to Cogee walk. It is yet another reminder of the current state of the world. It is a shame that something bad like this has to happen to justify making a beautiful sculpture for the public.
Finishing off the Bondi to Cogee beach walk you have any number of choices for places to eat. Mostly fish and chips and sandwiches. Prices are in the $10 AUD range and the helpings are worth it.
This walk was recommended from the Lonely Planet Australia Guide book. You can buy yours here.
