About Bondi Beach
Bondi Beach has played a central role in the development of Australia’s beach culture and developing our own sense of national identity. It is also significant in the course of Australia’s cultural history as the site of the foundation of the first formally documented surf life saving club in 1907. The crescent shaped stretch of sand flanked by sandstone cliffs, the pavilion with its elegant arches and the surf lifesavers distinctive red and yellow caps and flags are well known images of Bondi Beach and Australia. For many Australian and overseas visitors, Bondi Beach epitomizes the relaxed Australian summer of sun, surf and sand.
