Petit Futé's opinion on BONDI BEACH
Bondi Beach is one of Sydney's most famous beaches, especially for its fine sand and impressive rolls, which are appreciated by surfers. It was on this beach that in 1906 the rescue club was created to give birth to the New South Wales Surf Baths Association, the ancestor of the Surf life Saving Australia. Today, throughout Australia, a comprehensive education system allows surfing Life Saving a particularly developed civic vocation.
Bondi Beach stretches over one kilometre and Campbell Parade, which leaves the belt to succeed a myriad of cafes, restaurants and hotels, for the delight of the crowd of visitors who frequent Bondi daily.
The Bondi Pavilion, the city's cultural centre, is a large building built in 1928, which is in the centre of the beach. There are numerous events organised throughout the year. But the beach itself is a place that also hosts very high events, especially in the spring (Australian!). Each year, in September, Festival of The Wind (www.waverley.nsw.gov.au) allows you to attend beautiful kites competitions. Then, from October to November, the scale separating Tamarama Beach from Tamarama Beach is transformed into outdoor art gallery for the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition (sculpturebythesea.com).
Bondi Beach has been on the Australian National Heritage List since 2008. The so-called "blue bondi" colour comes from the particular property of this beach.
