Bondi Beach or Bondi Bay is a popular beach and the name of the surrounding suburb in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Bondi Beach is located east of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of Waverley Council, in the Eastern Suburbs. Bondi, North Bondi and Bondi Junction are neighbouring suburbs.History"Bondi" or "Boondi" is an Aboriginal word meaning water breaking over rocks or noise of water breaking over rocks. The Australian Museum records that Bondi means place where a flight of nullas took place.In 1809, the road builder William Roberts received a grant of land in the area. In 1851, Edward Smith Hall and Francis O'Brien purchased of the Bondi area that included most of the beach frontage, which was named the "The Bondi Estate." Hall was O'Brien's father-in-law. Between 1855 and 1877 O'Brien purchased his father-in-law's share of the land, renamed the land the "O'Brien Estate," and made the beach and the surrounding land available to the public as a picnic ground and amusement resort. As the beach became increasingly popular, O'Brien threatened to stop public beach access. However, the Municipal Council believed that the Government needed to intervene to make the beach a public reserve. On 9 June 1882, the Bondi Beach became a public beach.See Bondi Iceberg Club and all Bondi has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bondi itinerary planner.

A very spectacular pool in the world. It’s very wonderful that the pool is on the Pacific Ocean. Just have to beware of the big wave. The view of the pool is very enjoyable
Icebergs club is so spectacular! An incredibly beautiful place with magnificent views. Really wonderful kind helpful staff. A huge range of choices with Casual Icebergs Terrace cafe restaurant with food service from the bar, Coffee Shop above the pools, then the extraordinary restaurant on the top floor. A really lovely place to meet for small or large groups. A great place for a coffee or a meal of any type with views that are truly worth a visit of any type. Fabulous pools, swimming lessons, gym work outside as well. Beginning of the Bondi to Bronte Coastal walk right there.
