North Bondi

A strikingly stylish suburb that sets trends in eastern Sydney.

North Bondi shares Bondi and Bondi Beach’s laid-back attitude, but it differs slightly in manner, in style, and in its suburban sensibilities. This eastern enclave lacks the crowds and the busyness of the rest of Bondi while supporting sustainable farms and local yoga studios. Art Deco facades and ultra-modern designer apartments lend North Bondi a trendier, more exclusive reputation than its southern counterparts, and so does its array of sartorial boutiques and restaurants that name themselves with single syllables.
