Hello Bondi / Coogee
Bondi is a diverse, clean-living sort of place with a passion for enjoying the best of the great outdoors. Name ring a bell? Of course it does. Bondi Beach is the stuff of legend, sitting pretty just a few miles from the heart of the city and a popular spot for Sydneysiders and tourists alike. The beach even has free Wi-Fi, enabling you to taunt colleagues sat at their desks with beach and surfing selfies. Wander down to the beach on a Sunday morning to watch the next generation of surf-lifesavers learn the trade, before hitting up Bondi Beach Markets in the afternoon.
The neighborhood itself is bustling and not at all touristy, known especially for its healthy restaurants and laid-back, residential character. You could also throw together a picnic and set off for Coogee, a wonderful cliff-top walk that serves up some stunning views. Downtown Sydney is only ever a stone's throw away from Coogee and Bondi, so if surfing by day and fancy bars by night sounds like your thing, you've landed in exactly the right place.
