151 Curlewis St., Bondi
Photographer Eugene Tan has transformed a narrow, intimate space in a former mechanics yard into an homage to the ocean.
Icebergs Dining Room and Bar
1 Notts Ave., Bondi
Just standing in the room is a delight, and that’s before you’ve even eaten anything.
Bondi to Bronte Beach Walk
Bondi Beach, Bondi
There’s no better way to get to know a city than walking it. Strolling from Bondi to Bronte is maybe the best way to soak up the ocean views, check out the Sydneysiders going about their lives, and of course, get your steps in. At just over a mile and a half, the walk slopes along sandstone cliffs and passes Tamarama and Mackenzies Bay—and plenty of cafés and bars along the way.
Playa by Lucy Folk
3/11-13 Hall St., Bondi
Of all the Aussie-owned retail in Sydney, this cotton-candy store, which feels like a well-heeled friend’s closet, is easily our favorite. Lucy Folk is a jewelry designer, and one with exquisite taste across everything that could be classified as fashion. Sure, you can buy Folk’s jewelry and sunglasses at her Sydney flagship, but it’s also the spot to snag hard-to-find designers and pieces like Isa Arfen dresses, Solid & Striped swimwear, and woven panama hats in every color.
The Beach House, 11/178 Campbell Parade, Bondi
Nipping into Tuchuzy after a morning surf or before brunch in Bondi is all too convenient. The buyers have managed to create a place made for the breezy, beachy lifestyle of this corner of the world. Loose Ganni dresses and silky Anine Bing camisoles for what feels like the endless summer, and chunky knits, Rag & Bone boots, and scuffed Golden Goose sneakers for the cooler months. It’s impossible to leave empty-handed.
