Neighbourhood: Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.

This moving monument is a small but significant reminder of the brutal force of Nature. It commemorates the day on 6 February, 1938 when three huge waves suddenly rose without warning and swept into the sea several hundred swimmers. The lifesavers on duty quickly went into action and managed to save at least a hundred who were fighting for survival. Amazingly only five people lost their lives. The day came to be known as Black Sunday. The monument is only tiny and is easily missed by most walkers, unless you pay closer attention while going by. Worth looking for it if you are in the area, walking along this beautiful walkway.

Situated on the footpath close to the Iceberg Pools, this is only a small monument to a past event. Most people wander by without knowing a little piece of history.

Really easy to miss and walk past this monument. A reminder of the powerful nature of ocean and the amazing job the local life-savers/lifeguard do. Look out for this when walking from Bondi Beach and Bondi Icebergs. Take a couple of minutes to read and reflect.

Probably needs more attention; it's a worthwhile statue that is a timely reminder about a significant tragedy and issue but I was only conscious of it by entering Icebergs.

The statue is an interesting reminder of a past tragedy where bathers were lost in the sea. It is also a reminder that things happen in such pretty places.

This statue commemorate the loss of lives on Sunday 6 Feb 1938. Several waves pulled a lot of bathers into the sea, approximately 250 bathers needed assistance and unfortunately 5 people left their live in this tragedy.
The statue stands on the cliff beside the entrance towards Bondi Iceberg Club
