In a bit of rampant number-crunching by the beautiful boffins at Tourism NSW last year, it was found Bondi Beach ranked 1st in awareness of Sydney beach/surf precints by a country mile. No real surprises there. A little more unexpected to some people was Bondi’s place in the Top 5 for Events & Festivals. Not [...]

Bondi Good Hair Day
