As the weather cools down here in New York and we start getting glimpses of winter, I can’t help but be jealous of those in the Southern Hemisphere, like Aussies, who are heading from spring into summer. Instead of bundling up, folks Down Under are tucking their sweaters away and spending more time outside, which seems like a good time to abandon the New York chill and escape to Bondi Beach for some sunshine.
To get started on planning this trip (even if it’s just a daydream!), I looked at lists on Google Maps. Here are some ideas for strolling around Sydney on a warm day, according to lists made by Aussie Local Guides.
1. Start off your day at a cafe and bring your pup along to one of the great spots on Local Guide Mark Ehrman’s list, Dog Friendly Cafes Surry Hills / Redfern, like the popular Bourke Street Bakery Surry Hills.
2. Then, head to the coast for the scenic Bondi to Coogee Walk, which is recommended on Local Guide Flor Mollá’s list of five can’t miss spots for the perfect weekend Sydney.
3. After a long walk, wash off the heat of the day with a dip in an ocean pool, like the iconic Bondi Icebergs Club, which is recommended on Local Guide Penny Christie’s list, Awesome Ocean Pools in Sydney.
4. Relax after a day of activity with a pint or flight of craft beer at one of the recommendations from Local Guide Matthew Crane’s list, Inner West Craft Beer Guide, like the Cellar Bar at Wayward Brewing Co.
