Bondi to Coogee Walk

A group of my friends and I did this almost three-mile walk in an hour's time. Not only was it one of the most recommended things to do, but it was also one of the best things I did while in Australia. My favorite part of traveling is always adventuring away from museums and tourist destinations in efforts to find what makes the city unique and quirky in its own way. This little adventure showed me so many hidden treasures of Sydney that I would not have found if I never went on the coastal walk.
A few of my favorite hidden gems I found were these two photos above. The first being a beach with a bunch of "parked" boats above it. I have never seen anything like it and I think it is so charming. The second photo shows steps into the middle of the ocean. There were multiple sets of them along this area and it was so cool to see people getting in the water there and swimming against the ocean's current. 
Along the way there were amazing views and towns I had never seen, nor heard of. As a Southern California girl, I am obsessed with the ocean and beaches so finding these was so enchanting, to say the least. I really tried my best to take it all in while taking photos too because pictures can never capture the true beauty that the eye does in person!
A few more hidden gems included a HUGE graveyard that was kind of spooky, but uniquely beautiful. I had no idea that it even existed, so it was a special surprise along the way. Also, Australia has these outdoor bowling courses (I think that is what you would call it?), but this one had to have the best view out of all of them. I honestly thought it was adorable.
So I'll let you in on a secret...we did the walk backward! We walked from Coogee to Bondi instead of staying true to the name of the walk itself because we wanted to eat at Bondi Icebergs Club (post here) for lunch, which if you saw my other post (linked) you know that it was not my first or last time eating there! The direction of the walk did not matter though because it is the same path. Of course, I highly recommend (like everyone told us) to do this walk while in Sydney- you will for sure see parts that you cannot find on any generic tour!
