A superb walk, great day out for families. Plenty of amenities, play grounds, a miniature train at Bronte, parks, free electric BBQ hotplate at most beaches, incredible views, go diving, snorkelling at Gordon's Bay, stand up paddle boarding at Coogee, surf at Bondi, Tamarama, Bronte and Maroubra.

Did this one a second time, very nice coastal and beach views but way too busy for my liking.
