Bondi to Coogee Walk

About
A cliff top coastal walk, the Bondi to Coogee walk extends for six km in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. The walk features stunning views, beaches, parks, cliffs, bays and rock pools. The beaches and parks offer a place to rest, swim or a chance to eat at one of the cafes, hotels, restaurants or takeaways. All beaches offer picnic shelters, electric barbecues, play areas, kiosks, toilets and change-rooms. The walk is not difficult, there are medium gradient paths and several staircases with occasional seating. It takes about two hours to complete the Bondi to Coogee Beach section of the walk and another hour and a half if you choose to continue to Maroubra.

Top ways to experience Bondi to Coogee Walk
The area
Neighbourhood: Coogee
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.

    A Must Do Walk
    Amazing, easy walk, with beautiful views. No steep climbs, you can do it leisurely, stopping at bays and beaches along the way. You will see interesting rock formations and cliffs along the way. There is a nice cafe on Clovelly Beach. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. It takes up to 2 hours. When you get to Coggee you can catch a bus to Bondi.

    Great walk to see the coast
    On our first day in Coogee we took this walk in reverse. It was amazing and well kept. The trail was mostly paved or elevated. The views along the cliffs and at the beaches were exceptional. Highly recommend but do early to avoid crowds in Bondi.

    Lovely coastal walk
    Wonderful walk along the coast , passing beaches and seaside areas. Unfortunately it started to rain once we hit Clovelly beach so we waited. When it did not let up, had lunch at sea salt cafe and then took an uber back. Plan to do the last leg another time if possible.

    Must do to see the coastline!
    We have done this walk before and fell in love with it! We are not fitness nuts, are in our 50s and 60s, and finished this walk in 1 1/4 hours. When you stop at all the sites this adds the extra time to your trip. 2 hours is a good amount of time to plan for this walk. From the CBD we took bus 333 to Bondi. From Coogee we took bus 373. They pick up and drop off at different locations but walkable in CBD. Definitely a must do to enjoy the coastline!

    Fantastic!
    A really great walk, linking together some of the most beautiful places in the area. Plenty of beaches, cafes and points on interest on the way. Some filtered water refill stations and bathrooms are also scattered around, so this can easily turn into a long walk withal those lovely spots to rest in available.

    Great walk
    Free. Can be started from either beach. Path paved and clearly marked. Water refill stations along the way. 6.4km distance with only 73m elevation. Public transport connections out here aren’t great (mainly buses) but you can get anywhere through Bondi junction. Much to see along the way and beautiful on the right day. Took about an hour and a half but you could easily take longer.

    One of the best walks ever
    This was the highlight of our stay in Sydney, so much so that we went two or three times. You can do the walk in either direction or both if you're feeling particularly energetic. I would suggest that you take the bus to Coogee from Bondi and then walk back to Bondi beach. This way is a bit easier on the legs and also presents the best views of the landscape in front of you. If you walk from Bondi to Coogee the best views are over your left shoulder, something well keeping in mind. Not difficult is you are generally fit, some stairs but the views are well worth it. Bus 362 and 379 go from North Bondi to Coogee and from town buses take around 30-40minutes to Coogee. Don't miss this on any visit to Sydney.

    Steady steps from Bondi to Coogee
    My friends and I went there by bus, it was a sunny day and really hot outside. I suggest everyone need to take a sunscreen with you and bring a hat. The view was spectacular as others have said. There are many steady steps here and it cost us around 1 hour hiking from bondi to coogee. By the way, there are lots of water stations, really hope everyone to take a nice holiday there.

    Great coast walk. Not to be missed.
    Great hike with spectacular scenery. I was a bit intimidated heading out but it’s true you can stop anywhere along the way and rest/swim or just take in the views. I took advice and slathered myself with sunscreen as there is little shade. Reward at Coogie with a nice late lunch and shopping before taking the bus back to Bondi. You do need to have basic fitness. A great afternoon.

    A marvellous coast walk
    A few days ago we did the walk from Coogee to Bondi. It was a glorious blue sky day, perfect for the occasion. The coastal views along the walk were breathtaking. A good pathway to walk on all the way, it is a bit up and down with quite a lot of steps to transverse so if you have a mobility problem this walk is probably not for you. We passed through quite a few different bays and little town beaches, all a bit different , all lovely. Plenty of places to seat for awhile if your getting tired or just want to relax and enjoy the sites. Toilet stops were not a problem each little beach had toilets nearby and there were places to have a drink or something to eat. The walk is about 6 kilometres, it felt longer, took us about 2 hours 30 minutes, a good workout. We stopped many times to admire the view and take photos. If your a walker this is a must do walk when your in the area and have the time, better still make the time ,it is worth the effort

Such beautiful scenery around every corner. We only did half of the walk starting in Bondi but it was lovely the entire way. Lots of stairs but also opportunities to rest.
