If starting from the southern end of Bondi Beach, the walk is approximately 6 km long and will take the average walker about 2-3 hours to complete.

Bondi can be accessed by bus from the city, or by bus from Bondi Junction station.

Regardless of the time of year, it is important to understand that even in Sydney weather conditions can change rapidly.

There are water bubblers at each beach water, and ample cafe options for food.
