Bondi-Coogee Coastal Walk

Season is great and the beaches are so inviting. So we decided to take this Bondi-Coogee coastal walk which goes through some of the most famous and beautiful beaches of Sydney.

It was nice and calm and after a bit of fooling around on the beach, we started the walk which is well defined by sign boards. During the spring season each year around September, the first part of this walk from Bondi to Tamarama hosts a seaside gallery called Sculptures by the sea. It's one more reason to head to the beaches and take this nice walk.

For the more adventurous, there are tours which include going in the caves without lights and exploring caves which can be accessed only by crawling inside.Caution for claustrophobic people - best to go for open caves or chose a cave which can be explored in a short duration. My trip -
We started from Sydney early morning and took our first halt at Katoomba for some fresh breakfast. From there we took a short detour to the 3 sisters for photo ops. Back on our way to Jenolan and reached there by 1pm - I would suggest to come to Jenolan directly if you want to see more than 1 caves.
Due to limited time and cave tour timings, we were able to accommodate only a single cave - the Orien…
