weekend walks: coogee to bondi

Posted on

A sunny and warm autumn day called for us to visit the beach. So we chose to walk from Coogee to Bondi and back – totalling about 12 km all up!

The conditions were perfect for our weekend walk along the Eastern Coast which took us from Coogee to Clovelly to Bronte onto Tamarama before ending up on world famous, Bondi Beach! The walk took us up some steep inclines and steps but the view compensated for any pain we felt at times!

To finish off the walk, we met a Blue-Tongued Lizard – we had SO hoped to capture his blue tongue for the post but unfortunately he became very camera shy! And for the record, his tongue is very blue!

    It’s a beautiful walk and like nancymoss1 says, brings back great memories (I lived in Sydney ten years ago). Look forward to walking again one day. Great pics, especially love Bronte cliffs (colours in the rocks are cool). The little bluey is cute πŸ™‚

      Thank you!!! Literally missed the shot of the tongue by a millisecond and then we waited & of course, he didn’t poke it out again. He actually scurried away after we snapped the photo!
