Day 2

Discover Bondi Guided Beach, Coastal Walking Tour & Bondi Surf Experience

Discover why Bondi Beach is such an important part of Sydney's beach and coastal life-style, the home of surf lifesaving and the famous Bondi lifesaver. Fun, interactive and informative your relaxed guided walking tour allows you spend time with a true blue Bondi lifesaver and learn all about the colourful history of Bondi and how surf lifesaving began.

Finish up with a guided walk along Bondi's famous coastal headland and discover aboriginal rock carvings, spot marine life and the best viewing points of Bondi and surrounding beaches.

What better place to learn to surf than on world famous Bondi Beach? This popular beginner course teaches you how to safely get out and up onto your first wave. Here you'll be taught in a small group setting of 6 students or less, so you get plenty of hands-on help. To build up your knowledge and confidence, you first start you out on the beach and learn how to recognize surf conditions and practice your surfing technique before you get into the water. Then, it's off into the ocean, where you start off in broken waves, the white foam created after the waves run their course. You'll be amazed at how easy, safe, and enjoyable it can be to learn to surf.

The colours of twilight add an element of romance to your journey, as you watch the magical lights of Sydney flicker around you.
