BONDI BEACH. SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

December 20, 2015

BONDI BEACH

Today was a beautiful day to visit the beach with temperatures in the 80’s

Bondi Beach is one of Australia’s most famous beaches and well-known worldwide. It has probably featured on more postcards and more television shows and films than any other in Australia.

Each year tens of thousands of people, from backpackers to billionaires, take to the golden sands of this wide, one-kilometre long city beach expanse to walk, jog, or just soak up the sun. Being only 10 kilometres from the city centre, Bondi Beach is one of Sydney’s busiest beaches. There’s a host of events held here all year round from community art shows to city to surf running marathons.

Bondi is also the home of Australian surf-lifesaving. The Bondi Life Saving Club, formed in 1906, is Australia’s oldest. In summer it is patrolled by volunteer lifesavers, making sure swimmers stay between Australia’s iconic red and yellow beach safety flags. On Sunday mornings in summer you can watch the ‘Nippers’, Australia’s future life-savers, learning the ropes from a very young age. The calm protected waters are also a perfect place to learn to surf with a number of local surf schools to teach you how.
