Experience the thrills of Bondi Beach with a beach holiday

A few kilometres from Sydney CBD is the popular Bondi Beach. Holiday travellers looking for a beach house in Sydney should consider this area as Bondi Beach is one of Sydney’s premier shorelines, and the surf is as good as the sand, with plenty of sunshine and reliable waves. The beach is also conveniently located near all types of city amenities, whether you're in the mood for food or drink. During the summer months, you can find beachgoers lounging out, and there’s always fun to be had on one of the volleyball courts.

Even the ocean heats up, with water temperatures climbing as high as 24 degrees in February. Winter brings a surprising number of sunny days, but daytime highs average a cool 16 degrees. Although it's rarely a deluge, rain falls steadily throughout the year, so it's a good idea to always keep an umbrella handy.
