Here, over 70 kilometres of golden coastline and numerous famous surf breaks are rivalled only by the pristine sub-tropical rainforest of the hinterland. Surfers Paradise is the Coast’s high-rise mecca of lively nightlife, high-end fashion shopping, bronzed beach bodies and the infamous Meter Maids.

The globally recognised and iconic Bondi Baths have occupied prime position on one of Sydney’s most famous beaches for almost a century. Home to the Bondi Icebergs since 1929 and located at the southern end of the equally famous Bondi Beach, the popular lap pool boasts invigorating salt water, pumped directly from the Pacific Ocean. Originating from the Aboriginal word for ‘sound of water breaking over rocks’, boondi, the famous beach vista and pool form the backdrop for numerous internationally acclaimed TV programs such as Bondi Rescue and Bondi Vet.
