Bronte Beach sits on Nelson Bay, surrounded by Bronte Park. Bronte offers scenic cliff-top walking paths south to Coogee via the Waverley Cemetery and north to Tamarama and Bondi Beach. The cliff-top path offers views which extend from Ben Buckler in the north to Malabar in the south. Bronte is located about 2.5 km south of Bondi Beach.
The suburb has been declared the best of 641 Sydney suburbs by the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Suburbs Guide.
This is the home of Kerri Ainsworth of Art Travel Adventures, so I asked Kerri to suggest a few things she loves about her suburb. This is what she mentioned: the coastal walks, north to Bondi and south to Coogee. The pool, and the culture around the pool and early morning ocean swimmers. I felt the culture was very 1950’s aussie beach scene when I was shooting, which I loved, very friendly and long lived not your Bondi hipster scene.
Kerri also mentioned the Waverly cemetery, best at dawn or dusk .. for a bit of added drama, do stop and read the tombstones.
Bronte Park adds a whole other dimension to the beach and suburb. On any given day the place fills with smells of multi cultural barbecues. Head up the gully to a small waterfall and grand trees. You’ll pass the fabulous Bronte house, restored by Leo Scofield – keep an eye open for the open days – then back down the hill for a coffee at Bogey Hole Cafe or head up the hill to the original Three Blue Ducks …. you know them … if you don’t read on….
“Hailing from a humble beginning in Bronte 8 years ago, we have since embarked on ambitious and rewarding ventures in Byron Bay in 2015, Rosebery in 2016 and more recently Brisbane in 2018. Although each of our locations differ greatly in aesthetic their philosophy and ethos remains very much the same.
Our no-fuss way of dining and commitment to buying local and ethically farmed produce makes us proud to be seen as frontrunners in conscious consumption and a hit with visitors recognising our love of real food.”
