Only a 30 minute drive from the centre of Sydney down Oxford Street (it changes to Enfield Drive and then Bondi Road) brings you to the south entrance of Bondi Beach. Bus 380 from Circular Quay will get you there in about 40 minutes or the train to Bondi Junction, then buses 381 or 382 will drop you off right on the beach as well. The bus from Bondi Junction to the beach takes about 15 minutes.
“We stayed at the Harbour Rocks at the beginning of our trip to Sydney and loved everything about it- we learned later that it was the first hospital in Sydney, so it had a lot of character and was a perfect little boutique hotel in an incredible location in The Rocks. The views of the opera house and Harbour Bridge were just a bonus in this quaint little place and will definitely recommend it and go back myself.”
