Whether you’re here for a short while or a longer while, you’ll want to take maximum advantage of your temporary beach house. If you’re an early riser, Bondi offers a range of enjoyable ways to pass that quiet time before everybody else gets up. Go for a walk, swim, or grab a quiet coffee from one of the many early morning cafes.
Sunrise at Ben Buckler
Make your way across the rocks at North Bondi. Once you see the stairs to Ray O’Keefe Reserve, climb up and enjoy a spectacular sunrise over the watery horizon.
Early Morning Surf Lesson
Are you really a Bondi local if you haven’t at least tried to surf? Let’s Go Surfing offers lessons starting at 6:30am so you can enjoy falling off your board with relatively few witnesses.
Icebergs Pool and Sauna
The views from the Bondi Icebergs Sauna sweep out directly over the ocean. Sweat it out then jump into the crisp ocean pool for a revitalising start to the day. It can get crowded, but at 6am on a weekday you’ll have plenty of space.
Moore Park Driving Range
Fancy playing a few holes to clear your head in the morning? Moore Park Driving Range is open from 6am and offers a variety of options for play and practise.
While not strictly in Bondi, if you love your bread hot and fresh, it’s worth the quick drive over to Bronte to get your hands on a loaf of the famous Iggy’s Bread. The earlier the better - there’s always a line!
