Waverley has a number of great places to visit. Our beaches and coastline is a main attraction, but there is also a number of other activities to keep you busy.
Just a few kilometres from the centre of Sydney, Waverley has fabulous beaches and beach-side parks at Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte.
Its combination of beaches, parks and spectacular views make the Walk unique. Begun as a state project during the 1930s, it now extends from Ben Buckler Point to the southern end of Waverley Cemetery (and on to Coogee; for information call Randwick Council). It includes Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte Beaches and a medium gradient cliff-top path from Bondi to Tamarama , with occasional seating and several staircases. The beachside parks offer picnic shelters, coin-operated barbecues, play areas, kiosks, toilets and change-rooms.
Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach
Bondi Pavilion is right on Bondi Beach. Want to go to the theatre? Do a class? See great art? Be part of a festival, a music program or hold your own event? Then Bondi Pavilion is the place to be!
Waverley Council operates two iconic cemetery sites: Waverley Cemetery at Bronte and South Head Cemetery at Vaucluse. Both sites have a rich history with a number of notable people laid to rest at the sites including Australia's first Prime Minister, Sir Edmund Barton, Henry Lawson and several members of the prominent Packer and Fairfax families. The cemeteries are situated in picturesque locations and are operational to this day. Waverley and South Head Cemeteries are open for grave visitation on foot all year round with tours of Waverley Cemetery also available.
Bronte House is Waverley's oldest property. The estate to which Bronte House belonged was extensive. It included the cliff to the south of the house, where the property’s stables were located, Bronte Gully and Bronte Park and even the beachfront itself.
Campbell Parade artworks
Bondi Beach is a local and national icon. As part of the exciting upgrade of beach front Campbell Parade, Waverley Council has commissioned Australian artists to celebrate Bondi Beach and its community in public art works. Public art enlivens our streets, parks and public places and reflects community values.
