Tamarama Beach is a little stunner. Just around the headland south of Bondi, it’s nestled between cliffs and is stunningly beautiful.
Tamarama has a reputation as a place where the Beautiful People hang out, earning it the nickname ‘Glamarama.’
It’s also got the reputation for having good surf, but with tricky rips and shifting sandbars.
However, there’s a playground at the rear of Tamarama now, and it has wide grassy spaces for running and a good kiosk. So if you find yourself there with the kids, just stay within the flags, enjoy the reserve and the playground and that essential coffee and ice block, and you’ll have a good time.
Tamarama Marine Drive, Tamarama

Mum’s Report: Parking can be very tricky here, best to avoid busy times, or walk around the walkway from Bondi. Watching all the sunbathers is funny when you’re a mum chasing after your children in the waves. Sometimes I do envy their languor!
