Bondi Junction is located just 6km east of Sydney’s CBD and is part of the local government area of Waverley. Largely commercial, it’s undergone many changes in recent years and is today is about a whole lot more than just retail therapy.

The name Bondi Junction was coined due to the extension of tram lines to Bondi Beach, Charing Cross and Bronte. It referred to the junction of the Bondi and Bronte tram lines at the corner of what is now Oxford Street and Bronte Road.

For those needing easy access into the city, Bondi Junction ticks all the boxes. Bondi Junction railway station can have you at Central in less than ten minutes, and despite the shiny apartment towers and retail stores, you still feel a sense of a laidback lifestyle.
