Places of interest

Waverley has a number of great places to visit. Our beaches and coastline is a main attraction, but there is also a number of other activities to keep you busy.

Our Beaches

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

Coastal Walk

Its combination of beaches, parks and spectacular views make the Walk unique. Begun as a state project during the 1930s, it now extends from Ben Buckler Point to the southern end of Waverley Cemetery (and on to Coogee; for information call Randwick Council). It includes Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte Beaches and a medium gradient cliff-top path from Bondi to Tamarama , with occasional seating and several staircases. The beachside parks offer picnic shelters, coin-operated barbecues, play areas, kiosks, toilets and change-rooms.

Waverley Cemetery

Waverley Cemetery is one of the area's most iconic sites, with its picturesque location along the coastal walk at Bronte and heritage significance of many of its monuments, graves and memorials. The cemetery has been in operation since 1875, when the first purchase of land to start the cemetery took place. The first interment took place in the afternoon of 4 August 1877. To date over 80,000 interments have taken place in 50,000 gravesites and memorials over 40 acres.

Bronte House

Bronte House is Waverley's oldest property. The estate to which Bronte House belonged was extensive. It included the cliff to the south of the house, where the property’s stables were located, Bronte Gully and Bronte Park and even the beachfront itself.

Campbell Parade artworks

Bondi Beach is a local and national icon. As part of the exciting upgrade of beach front Campbell Parade, Waverley Council has commissioned Australian artists to celebrate Bondi Beach and its community in public art works. Public art enlivens our streets, parks and public places and reflects community values.
