Bondi tourism

People can get very protective of our little eclectic community enclave. But, you know what, you live in one of the most gorgeous places on earth (I know this to be true as I’ve travelled around our wonderful world and choose to live right here). So, people are going to visit. They are going to soak up the sun on our stunning beach, they’re going to have fun, use our services, shop in our stores, have a bevvy in our bars, laze in our parks and attend our events. They will bring energy, atmosphere, vibrancy (and money). Yes, they will sometimes drive here and have to park, they may leave their damn water bottles on the beach and lord knows they will clog up the coastal walk on a sunny weekend during Sculpture by the Sea.

Sometimes you’ll have to just suck it up (if you’re a Sunday coastal jogger in November), sometimes you’ll have to be patient (and queue for ice-cream in summer) and sometimes you’ll have to take action and protect our environment and community health and safety.

But, most of all, you’ll just have to get used to it. Bondi Beach is BEAUTIFUL. People will come. Be proud, be positive and be nice – one day you might visit someone’s else’s gorgeous part of the world and expect the same…
