Sculptures by the Sea -Bondi to Coogee

View Adventures in the Southern Hemisphere, Part 1 on smr1188's travel map.

Elizabeth and I waited for the second to last day to see the sculptures by the sea. It was also the second hottest day we'd been here. And a Saturday. It was packed with people. I'd actually read about the Sculptures by the Sea walk in a blog months ago, but didn't remember the dates, so I'm glad we timed it right!

We took a couple buses to get to Bondi Beach where it all starts, and headed South to Coogee Beach. Not sure I'll ever like buses, but we eventually made it. It was the first time we'd been to Bondi and it's a touristy beach town from what we could tell from the half an hour we were there. We got some last minute supplies we'd been needing...sunglasses for me and a hat for Elizabeth...and headed out on the walk.

It's advertised as 6km but definitely felt a lot longer. Probably partly because we were surrounded by so many people we couldn't walk normally. We only lost each other once in the crowd but there was a ton of people everywhere. You can't tell from most of my pictures since I was trying to avoid capturing the mobs of people and focusing on the sculptures and picturesque landscape.

In the end it was hot (mid 80s), long, and totally worth it. The path goes up and down stairs so you go from being along a beach/water level to being up on a cliff overlooking the ocean and the next beach as it follows the shoreline south to Coogee. I took way too many pictures and will now just post a lot of them.




One of my favorites for sure...a simple glass ball with water in it.

You know you're in Australia when there's giant jugs of free sunscreen:
