Rising above Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach, Bondi quietly watches surfers hit the lip from its elevated perch in the city’s eastern suburbs. Bondi’s relative shyness to its rowdy neighbor doesn’t mean it lacks style, charisma, or personality. On the contrary, its local shops are neighborhood institutions and its classic bungalows preserve its beach town charm. Share a brew on Bondi Road or skate to the beach with your board—it’s easy to take it easy in Bondi.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
