#2 Skating on the sand
Bondi is famous for its wide, white beach and the lifesavers that patrol the waters. In Summer it’s a mecca for surfers, swimmers and sun worshippers. So it was a surprise to find the beach posing as an alpine playground at the centre of the Winter Festival. The Alpine Ski Hut, where warming chai lattes are served free of charge, looks out on to the largest outdoor ice skating rink in the Southern Hemisphere – on one of the most famous beaches. What better place could there be to enjoy two seasons in one day?
