Bondi Beach, which is to the south-east of the CBD, is surrounded by Tamarama, Bondi, Bellevue Hill, and Bondi North. The main thoroughfare is Campbell Parade. Bondi is of course most famous for its beach.
Behind the beach is a thriving strip of shops, restaurants and cafés. Local shopping destination Westfield Bondi Junction draws Sydney residents with its up-market shops. Nearby Oxford Street is a thriving cultural hub of restaurants, shops and entertainment venues.
More unusual ways to explore Bondi include Harley Davidson tours, or see it from the air in a seaplane or helicopter. If your interests are more water-based you can learn to surf, go scuba diving or take a whale-watching trip.
