Day 2 saw us walking along the coast from vibrant Coogee Beach up to the infamous Bondi Beach. We had a late start to the day so we managed to walk only half of the trail between the two touchpoints. The train from Sydney Central took us to Bondi from whence we took a bus to Coogee. Instead of walking north-southwardly (Bondi-Coogee) we started from Coogee and moved northwards towards Bondi, stopping midway at Clovelly.

The views from the coastal walk were as spectacular as they were magical. Everything just seemed so vibrant and alive- from the cloudless brilliant blue sky, the rich emerald green grass with the many exceptionally rare vegetation, the intensely golden-white sandy beaches and the deep blue ocean- making everywhere I turn seem so majestic. Even then I couldn’t believe that I was really in Australia and had to keep reminding myself that I wasn’t just dreaming.

The hilly side of Coogee. The beach-goers were either just chilling in the sun or reading.

The more secluded Gordon’s Bay, perfect for private picnics or dipping in the water.

Clovelly- the half-way point between Coogee and Bondi where we cut our walk short and took the bus into Bondi instead.

When we arrived the sun was already beginning to set. It was also so cold!

We ended our day chilling at one of the clubs on Bondi before a short stroll down the almost empty promenade.
