Bondi Bounce Pride Walk

Campbell Parade + Bondi Road

Follow the rainbow of bouncing balls from Bondi Junction train station to the golden sands of Bondi Beach.

For Sydney World Pride, a rainbow of colour takes you from Bondi Junction train station to the world’s most famous beach. The 3.6km walk is a vibrant wayfinding journey through Bondi’s history, bouncing between colourful parklet hubs and taking in the sights, sounds and stories of our diverse neighbourhood.

The urban design intervention turns streets into shared spaces, prioritising pedestrians and improving the walkability of Bondi and its surrounding neighbourhoods. Waverley Council received funding from the NSW Government’s Streets As Shared Spaces Grant to help revitalise Bondi’s entry gateway.

Bondi Bounce social hubs, together with history and heritage, activate sustainable tourism, walkability and ‘shop local’ initiative that foster a safe, friendly and engaging environment for the community.

Bondi Bounce takes you past the Bondi Rise memorial, which pays tribute to the courage and resilience of survivors of a wave of homophobic and transphobic violence across Sydney that began in the 1970s. Rise was inspired by the topography of the Bondi cliffs at Marks Park and features a six-level stone terrace with stunning coastal views, representing the six bands in the Pride flag. The cliffs that descend to the ocean are reimagined as a staircase to the sky, creating a path forward, away violence towards remembrance, diversity, inclusion, justice and acceptance.

Bondi Bounce welcomes Sydney World Pride and encourages visitors to walk the rainbow to the Bondi Beach Party on March 4th and the cultural program at Bondi Pavilion.
