A superb Sydney summer means you can enjoy Sydney's beaches well into March. What better way to enjoy this year's heatwave than with a girls' only weekend in Bondi.
One of the most iconic destinations in Australia, not only known for its stunning beaches, surfing and café culture, but with so many chic bars and restaurants it can be overwhelming knowing what to do and where to eat to get the most out of Bondi.
We’ve put together the ultimate two-day itinerary for you and the girls to do in Bondi this weekend!
7:00 AM - Get your body up and moving early with a Bondi to Bronte coastal walk. This breathtaking 45min one-way walk will awaken all your senses. Locals Tip - Cool off half-way at the Bronte Ocean Pool before heading back to Bondi.
11:00 AM - Head to brunch at Bills Bondi. Known for their epic brunch menu and the silkiest scrambled eggs. Locals tip - Make sure you put your name down early to avoid waiting in line!
1:00 PM - After brunch, hit the beach or in this case the Bondi Icebergs Ocean Pool. There is a small charge to access the pool but it's oh-so-worth it!

7:00 PM - After drinks, head to Ikaria Bondi. This stylish, Mediterranean dining destination serves up the best Greek mezze in Bondi.
