Places starting with B: Bronte Beach


This last week I unexpectedly had to go to Sydney with my sister. Not being sure what to expect as she may have had to have an operation, I took my camera just in case.

Luckily she has had a reprieve for a few weeks and went home Friday happy in the knowledge. I myself, rather than spending double on airfare, decided to stay over and go on Saturday thus enabling me to go out to the southern beach area of Sydney to have a look at the tidal pools I have seen many times in pictures. My aim was to walk from Bronte Beach and if time permitted to get to Coogee Beach. It wasn’t a long walk but stopping and taking photos did take time but I managed to get it all done and was really happy as I made my way back into Sydney and then to my flight home.

Having been to Bondi at Easter this year and not having a great deal of time, I decided to start the walk at Bronte beach at the first tidal pool. My only disappointment was just not being there before dawn, maybe next time. What a wonderful place, during the whole walk I was stunned by nature at its rawest and by design with the rock pools, it is just magnificent. How lucky we are to live in this country, sometimes you forget to appreciate what is around you.

It was a warm winters day with a bit of an icy breeze in the unprotected areas yet there were still a few people swimming. One man told me it was about 16 degrees Celsius. The water was so inviting with its aqua/green hue that I just wanted to wade in, clothes and all. It was just that enticing. I would love to go back in summer just to the beaches, catch the morning light and have a leisurely swim with not a care in the world.

You can find more information about Bronte Beach here.

In my next post I will go from Bronte Beach to Clovelly.

  2. Gorgeous. I saw a couple of those pools at Bondi the other week. Just curious. How long did it take you to walk from Bondi to Coogee?

    • Thanks Sue. Hmm not to sure re time…. Not long really. I stopped a lot to take photos. I think it was only about 4km altogether and could have taken about 3/4 hour or less if I was just walking smartly, but I think stopping and starting it was about 1 1/2 hrs!! Its not as far as it seems. I must go back to Bondi and have a better look at their pools. I’m now kind of hooked on tidal pools…..

  8. Amazing colours! I need to get myself down to Australia 🙂 It might sounds a daft question, but I wonder why has that tidal pool been built right next to the ocean and the beach?

    • Hi Susie, I am a Canon girl but I am not sure there is much of a difference. I sometimes envy the sharpness of the Nikon. I was using a Sigma wide angle 10-22mm lens. I would love to go back to these rock pools at sunrise and sunset as they have so much to offer 🙂

      • Ah thanks very much, yes I’ve been with Cannon from the start but I too was jealous of the sharpness from Nikons. Maybe i need to change to a better lens on the Nikon for better like for like comparison. I love the Bronte rock pool such a magical place 🙂 I must also pay it another visit 🙂 ! thanks again love the blog 🙂
