For those days when I can’t make it to Bondi for the world famous Bondi to Bronte cliff walk, I undertake the lesser-known Rose Bay to Rose Bay walk, a 40-minute round trip that showcases the best of the harbourside suburb I call home.
You’re unlikely to spot Lara Bingle or the latest reality TV star from The Biggest Loser, but you will get to see the local wildlife – pelicans – and you won’t be tripped over by lycra-clad joggers.
Gaze longingly at Catalinas – which is named after the Catalina flying boats – make your way through the crowds at the ferry terminal and head along the promenade to The Pier.
If you only have loose coins in your pocket rather than a Platinum Amex, instead of pressing your face up against the window wishing you were in there dining with the rich and the fabulous, I’m going to let you in on a little secret that gives you an even better view for your morning latte.
