    The Coogee to Bondi coastal walk

    If you find yourself in Sydney, why not spend an afternoon walking the windy scenic route from Coogee beach to Bondi beach via the coastal path. Its a great mini adventure that will show you that there is more to Sydney than Darling Harbour and Circular Quay, this coastline is both dramatic and beautiful.

    The walking route is of a low difficulty and whilst making your way to Bondi from Coogee you'll also pass 3 other beaches ...

    • 1. Clovelley Beach
    • 2. Bronte Beach
    • 3. Tamarama Beach

    The walk costs nothing and getting to Coogee from Sydney city centre is easy by bus.

    Buses from Pitt Street to Coogee – 372 or 373
    Buses from Circular Quay or Oxford St to Bondi – 333 or 380

    Now all that remains is to pack your beach gear, walk the walk and then decide which is your favourite beach whilst slurping on a slush puppy.

    Make like a local and do brunch

    Nowhere else on this fine globe does brunch like the Aussies do, and the finest examples of a brunch I've ever had the pleasure of putting in my mouth comes from Sydney.

    For me, you can't go far wrong with Brown Sugar, in Bondi. Their Black Stone eggs are hands down one of the best egg dishes I've had. Free range, cooked to perfection and served with an English muffin, hash brown balls, bacon and tomato. If you like something a little more international, try the Moroccan eggs served with spinach and za'atar toast. DELICIOUS! Their coffee isn't bad either (read: it's amazing).

    You can't go far wrong with eggs and coffee anywhere in Sydney, actually. Just like surfing, running and being good-looking; creating a great brunch is in the Sydneysider's blood.

    Manly Ferry

    Although this was not set up as a tourist attraction, it is proving to be one of the best value and most popular that Sydney has to offer. Quite possibly the best way to see the harbour, the Manly ferry departs regularly from Circular Quay and head north.

    A return journey is roughly the cost of a beer and crisps, sorry, chips, and you can get a day pass, for all travel in Sydney, for about $20 (around £13).
