Arguably Australia’s most famous beach, has always attracted large crowds. Even before most Sydneysiders owned cars the tram service brought an estimated 35,000 beachgoers daily during summer months. Bondi’s residents are primarily permanent residing in flats surrounding the beach. Additionally, Bondi attracts a majority of overseas working holidaymakers calling it home for a fair proportion of their Australian stay.
Bondi Beach was named after an aboriginal meaning of ‘The sound of water crashing over rocks’, Boondee. This was later changed to Bondi.
