North Bondi is considered the "locals" part of the Bondi Beach area. Perched on a hill overlooking the Tasman Sea, it lacks the tourists and Sydneysiders who flock to the beach in summer. This also means that it's not as bustling a retail and dining scene as Bondi Beach, but it still offers a good selection of cafes and restaurants.
The Ben Buckler Lookout provides a commanding view of all of Bondi Beach and is a great spot to watch the sun rise (people here do get up that early for a run or a surf, even in winter). Aboriginal carvings can be found on the cliffs below.
The Bondi Golf Course is situated right on the water and does not require membership to play here.
