This is the perfect example of what Sydney means to me: roughly hewn sandstone, glittering clear waters, dramatic cliffs and beaches. The Bronte Baths are a Sydney gem. Walk to Bondi for changing perspectives on the above. My version of NSW heaven.

A lovely beach! Walking along here on a windy, damp winter's day, gives this beach, as others, too, a different mood. Cosy cafes and coffee shops provide warm, welcoming refuges after refreshing walks.

Great little spot -jus over the hill from famous Bondi Beach. Excellent playground and BBQ area - huge grass expanse between this area and beach. Great for those run away little tikes. Swimming pool, rock pool and surf beach Buses available right to beach area and are regular

Absolutely love the area. Good waves for surfing. Little cafes. The people are so friendly than Bondi, The Shire, Northern Beaches and the Central Coast. This more of a laid back area. Love to come back here again.

Having once lived in Bronte for many years I know the area well. However, it is changing, though sadly not always for the better ! Despite the changes I always take visitors there so they can get a taste of Sydney beach life. Its physical beauty remains unchanged due to its basic topography with the stunning ocean-scape from the beach... More

We started our walk to Bondi at Bronte. Its a much smaller beach, bound on each side by rocks and was not at all crowded. It was winter mind you. Was easy to get to by bus, and then from here we walked to Bondi beach. The walk itself was a lot of fun, great view points along the way.... More

I met this place when I did the walk from Cogee to Bondi Beach. Nice place, nice view, nice walking.

Bronte is my favourite Sydney beach. It's almost never as crowded as Bondi but just as easy to get to by bus from Bondi Junction. There is a great strip of cafés serving variety of lunches and sandwiches and even a fish and chip shop. It also has more communal BBQs than many beaches and a good size grass area... More

Whether you want a quick paddle, build sand castles with the kids or have a picnic in the park area and take advantage of the playground you'd be pressed to find a nicer spot. Parking can be difficult but get there early to beat the crowds or better still, do the coastal walk.

We took a bus from the CBD to Bronte and then had a few coffees at the local cafes there and then walked to Coogee. We weren't in any hurry and the weather was pleasant so about an hour and a half later we were in Coogee. It was an easy going walk with beautiful scenery and it was good... More
