Our beaches

" "

Just a few kilometres from the centre of Sydney, Waverley has fabulous beaches and beach-side parks at Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte.


People love world-famous Bondi Beach with its fabulous surf, wading pool, playgrounds and nearby shops, cafés and restaurants. The southern end is popular with experienced surfers, while the northern end is more swimmer-friendly. For more cultural entertainment, visit the historic Bondi Pavilion in the centre of the Bondi Promenade and catch an exhibition, class or festival. There are cafés, playgrounds, shops, showers, toilets, BBQs and picnic areas.


Tired of the bustle of Bondi? Head to nearby Tamarama. But be careful, it’s one of the most dangerous surf beaches in Australia and prone to strong currents. As with all of Waverley's beaches, make sure you swim between the red and yellow flags at all times. There is a cafe, playground, BBQ area, showers and toilets for visitors.


Bronte beach and park boasts great coastal views, beautiful adjoining parkland and gully, and a bustling café strip. Facilities include a large BBQ and picnic area, playground, showers and toilets - perfect for families wanting to enjoy a summer picnic.

Smoking and drinking alcohol is banned on all of Council's beaches.
