Bondi is of course world-renowned for its iconic beach – with a deserved place among the world’s most attractive beaches and top surfing destinations. Bondi is the closest ocean beach to the city, 7km to the CBD and part of the Waverley Municipality. But Bondi is much more than just a beautiful beach, it’s a vibrant suburb that caters for an eclectic mix of people –young families, couples, the elderly, tourists and the odd celebrity or two. Here they will reside in a mix of Art Deco buildings, semi-detached houses, California bungalows and, increasingly, contemporary apartments with magnificent views.
A major tourist destination, Bondi beachfront has undergone a multi-million dollar government funded upgrade. Its cosmopolitan and laidback café culture is part of its appeal and the beachfront and surrounding streets offer a plethora of cafés and restaurants. From a quick coffee fix at the famed Gusto’s to fish and chips on the sand or a fine dining experience at the awarded Iceberg Dining Room, Bondi happily caters for all budgets and requirements.
Over the past decade, the marked gentrification and infrastructure upgrade has turned Bondi into a supremely desirable address and one loved equally by the fashion set and families. This revival has seen Bondi experience substantial capital growth in property prices making it a premier investment prospect.
For recreation there’s everything on offer – Surf Life Saving Clubs, swimming at Bondi Icebergs, gyms, cycling, playgrounds, sporting fields and walking or jogging the scenic headland path from Bondi to Coogee. When you choose to live at Bondi you are definitely choosing a lifestyle. You can enjoy the sand and surf, yet with convenient public transport be close enough to major shopping centres and the city.
