Weekend Walk: Bondi to Bronte & Sculptures by the Sea

Although in this case it was  Bronte to Bondi. After enjoying a lovely few hours chilling at Bronte beach celebrating D’s birthday I left the group to undertake the well know walk between Bronte and Bondi beaches. Over the past few weeks the walk has also featured the Sculptures by the Sea exhibit. If you’re unaware Sculptures is a variety of outdoor modern art sculptures that are framed by the natural backdrop of the ocean and beach.

The walk itself is very pleasant and undoubtedly a good way to admire the coastline and visit more than just the famed Bondi beach. Although being both a weekend and when Sculptures is on there are a number of people wandering around. It sounds bad and irritating, especially for us city folk who normally walk at pace and direction. Fortunately, there was enough scope to get around most people. The only piece of advice I’d give is one of etiquette, please do not stand or crouch on the path to take photos of the sculptures. Yes, it might be the best location but you’re holding up the line and it’s unlikely you will actually get the shot with so many people trying to move past.

There really isn’t much to say about the walk, it is just a walk but a very relaxing one and for those of us whose idea of the great outdoors is The Domain then the Bondi to Bronte walk has the added benefit of still being in the city, so give it a try!  

By far my favourite sculpture was the melted ice cream truck (including a melting them song!) and at the end of the day I spied a functioning van.


I also liked the Sphere, it speaks to my geekiness and reminds me of any number of movies, shows and games with giant spinning spheres and on the bluff added to the atmosphere. Granted the people milling around did detract a tad.


And now an assortment of photos from the walk… (also on Flickr).

  1. Hi,
    I would like to use your image of the meting ice cream truck for some promotional collateral for my ice cream parlour in Hampstead, London but I understand it may be copyrighted. Slice of Ice Ltd is an independant new business which is aleways on the look out for amusing photographs & illustrations of ice cream and related products.
