How To

A Guide To Doing Bondi Beach Like A Local

Feat. our favourite places and a little Louis Vuitton.

With a bustling community of locals, tourists and tourists who became locals – Bondi has become one of the world’s most iconic beaches.

You really can’t ‘do’ Australia without getting the full Bondi experience.

For those of you who’ve never been, think of it as a vibrant, creative city by the beach where you can come to relax, shop, surf, swim, make friends and everything in-between.

There’s A-grade coffee on every corner, avocado on toast that will change your life and luxury fashion too (FYI, Louis Vuitton just re-opened its store in Bondi Junction and the handbag offering is D.A.N.G.E.R.O.U.S.)!

It may be far, but its well worth the trip (we promise!) if you know where to go, what to do and what to order.

So to celebrate our favourite little corner of the world and the new-look Louis Vuitton store, we took some *sparkly* new accessories for a spin around town to some of our favourite Bondi hotspots – see below.

GO FOR A WALK AT...

North Bondi Beach. Admire the artwork, climb on the rocks and relax on the grassy knoll. When you’re done, pop into North Bondi Fish for a frosé.

HAVE BRUNCH AT...

Porch & Parlour – like the local’s do. The coffee and food is that good there’s often a queue out the door. Order the green breakie bowl (with halloumi if you’re feeling naughty!).

HANG WITH THE LOCALS AT...

Bondi Markets. Saturdays are for food and Sundays are for clothing ( but I’m all about the food rather than the fashion here). Think organic produce, great coffee and live music. The corn fritter stall is amazing (order the Egyptian breakfast), then grab a sugarcane & mint juice and browse the beautiful selection of local flowers available.

BE A TOURIST AT...

The beach front. Get an ice-cream (I recommend one of the specials from Messina), stroll down at sunset and sit on the beach. This is my favourite place to people watch. I find watching the waves (and surfers!) so therapeutic.
