Iconic Bondi Beach has a couple of very particular attractions for families, especially those with young children.
The playground here has one of the best water views in Sydney… and… it’s fully fenced. Heavenly.
Bondi Beach Playground
By Bondi Pavilion, Queen Elizabeth Drive Bondi 2026
In the middle of Bondi Park, just across the promenade from beautiful Bondi Beach, this playground has lots of excellent play equipment for younger children.
There are benches at the back that look out over the beach and sea so parents and carers can enjoy the view.
Children from 0 – 5 years will love this playground. Older sibling up to the age of 10 will find something to do as well. The junior area is low and has easy access for younger children. There is a more challenging climbing frame for older children. The large seesaw and the ship-theme sand pit are great for all ages, as are the swings.
There are shaded picnic tables within the playground itself, and BBQs just outside.
Bondi Park itself has shaded picnic tables and there is always lots of action for the kids to watch.
Nearest coffee: Cafes at the pavilion, very close
Toilet: Toilets with baby change table in the pavilion
Shade: Yes, from shade cloth and trees
Mum’s report: A great spot in the late afternoon. We’ve been known to bring a picnic down and watch the sunset while the kids have fun.

Parking: Two carparks at Bondi Beach, entrances both off Campbell Parade… rather expensive and crowded at weekends…
Bus stop nearby: Yes
Bondi is quite a hike from where we live, but great for us as a day out in school holidays.
If you live in the Eastern Suburbs or the city or inner west, it’s just a fab spot for a regular visit.
