A member of the Easy Airbnb team will organise your arrival and will continue to provide any assistance during your stay. The NeighborhoodNorth 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. Getting AroundPublic transport is just 5 mins walking from my place, buses to the city, to Junction, Tamarama, Bronte or Coogee beach.
Bondi is pretty small so you can walk everywhere :)
In the last two years there has been a strong push to make the buses pre-pay At the time of writing this, you can still pay your fare direct to the bus driver after 7pm, but never on a 333 bendy-bus which are pre-pay only.
Bus fares are calculated according to the number of sections you travel. It's not a single price system, and it's a bit complex for tourists but briefly from Bondi Beach it's $2.10 to Bondi Junction (it's called 1 or 2 sections), $3.50 for Paddington and Darlinghurst (3 to 5 Sections) and $4.50 right down to Circular Quay.

Brief advice for tourists: If you are here for more than three days...
There are concession fares and tickets for genuine students on their way to classes, and for pensioners. As a tourist, don't bother with these, as the ticket inspectors are very strict on concessions - you might as well have no ticket at all. There is definitely no concession for that dreadful "International Student" card, and no concessions of any sort for overseas "pensioner" or "retired" travellers.
The bus stop is situated 2 minutes walk from my house on Old South Head Road - the buses 386 or 387 go straight to Westfield shopping centre and train station.
You can walk 15 minutes to catch the Ferry into the City from Rose Bay Ferry Wharf.
Its a pleasant walk to Bondi Beach.
The explorer bus and local bus to Watsons Bay leave from Bondi beach and these are experiences not to be missed .
Uber will cost approximately $AUS8.00 to Bondi Junction .
General Train Information
Basically trains run every 4 minutes during peak hour, every 10 minutes outside peakhour, and every 15 minutes late in the evening and on weekends.
The timetable is fairly easy to remember. On weekdays, a train should leave Bondi Junction every ten minutes on the 08, then 18, 28, 38 etc. These times apply until 9:00 pm at night when later trains run every 15 minutes until 12:30am.
When coming back to Bondi, trains from the City to Bondi Junction pass through Town Hall Station on the 6 minutes past the hour then 16, 26, 36 etc on weekdays until 3pm. Allow a couple of minutes earlier at Central and a couple of minutes later at Martin Place. After about 6:30 there is a train roughly every 10 minutes or better until 8:25pm thence every 15 minutes until 12:10am.
Generally the Sydney train system finishes around midnight. There are a few later trains on Friday at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and 12:55am and on Saturday at 12:25 and 12:55am.
At weekends, the trains run every 15 minutes on 00, 15, 30 and 45 minutes past the hour from Bondi Junction to the City. With this infrequent service, it's much more sensible to stay on the bus at weekends. Last train is 12:30am late Sunday night, and 1:15am late Saturday night.
The timetable has been slowed down to make the trains run on time. The trip to Town Hall now takes 11 minutes, but in 1979 it took 8 minutes. The further you travel west, the more often you will see people hurdling the ticket barriers because they don't want to pay. Your fares, and the recent fare increases, help pay for these athletic evaders.
I strongly advise tourists coming up from Bondi Beach to catch a bus marked Circular Quay and stay on the bus for a pleasant ride into town. Other Things to NoteQuiet tree lined streets , close by bakeries and coffee shops .
Rose bay wharf and beach are walking distance and offer kayaking and paddle boarding . There are several lovely , newly renovated cafes snd restaurants situated on the waterfront .
