Weather

Best time to travel to Bondi Beach holiday homes

Your Bondi Beach vacation rental never puts you far from the beach, which is good because summers in the region can be scorching. In the late spring and summer, it's not uncommon for temperatures to exceed 35 degrees with humidity to match. 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.

Natural highlights

Have a whale of a good time in breathtaking Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach's natural beauty comes from its seaside setting, from its horseshoe-shaped shoreline to waves crashing on its white sand beaches. Soak up the views from atop the city's famed cliffs, where grassy hillsides serve as a popular spot for picnics, barbecues or just tossing a frisbee. Interested in wildlife? You'll find plenty in Bondi Beach, particularly in the waters filled with sharks and dolphins. In the spring and autumn, keep an eye out for migrating whales swimming off the coast of Bondi Beach. Although rare, you may also spot fairy penguins riding the perfect wave alongside surfers.
