Once again, apologies for the lack of writing. I’ve been very busy doing my regional work but that is now all done and dusted and I can get back to travelling! I’ve got trips to write about that happened months ago but I’m going to try my hardest to get this blog up to date as quickly as possible.
Back in April this year, Stu and I were in Sydney for the first time and we spent a week with Stu’s parents. It was a fantastic week and we did so much in so little time. Even now I look back at that week thinking it was one of the best parts of our whole time away. The day after they went home was certainly the most home sick we have been.
One thing that sticks out in my mind about that week was a coastal walk we did from Bondi beach to Coogee bay. It’s a fairly easy walk that can last half a day if you take a picnic as we did.
From Sydney CBD you can catch a bus to Bondi to begin your trip there. Bondi is obviously world famous but I don’t actually know why it’s any more famous than other beaches in Australia. It’s not my favourite by far because it’s full of tourists. If you get the chance definitely visit some of the lesser populated beaches around the area, especially the ones along this route!
Along the coast there are a number of bays and picnic areas to rest at and break up the walk if you want to make a day of it. The views of the sea and surf are incredible. We saw plenty of surfers during our walk and I’m still itch ing to give the sport a go!
The end of the walk is Coogee which is a really pretty beach. You will definitely want to stop off for a well deserved beverage at one of the bars over the road. We went to the Coogee Bay Hotel which has great views of the seafront with big panoramic windows. I recommend the Dirty Granny cider, goes down well after all the sea air!
