Bondi Pavilion history

Bondi Pavilion, 'The Playground of the Pacific'.


Situated right on Sydney's most famous beach, Bondi Pavilion has a colourful history dating back to 1928 when the Pavilion was known as the "Playground of the Pacific". People bathed in the Turkish baths, danced in the ballroom and met for all sorts of reasons at this iconic building.

The Pavilion has seen many activities and reincarnations over the years and nowadays the Bondi Pavilion is the cultural hub of Bondi with a theatre, gallery, music studios, art and pottery studios, a screening room and halls for hire for regular classes, workshops, functions, festivals and parties.
