Bronte is a cosy seaside suburb 7 kilometres southeast of Sydney’s CBD set between Bondi and Tamarama to the north and Clovelly to the south.
A village atmosphere and strong sense of community are evident in its many cafes, its large numbers of enthusiastic Nippers, swimmers, and surfers, and its weekend beachside barbeque events.
Although the main stretch of surf isn’t for the faint hearted, the Bronte Bogey Hole and Ocean Baths are legendary swimming spots that offer calmer havens to cool off on a hot summer’s day (or all year round for saltwater fanatics).
Heritage-listed Bronte House and gardens and the Waverley Cemetery (Sydney’s most scenic cemetery) both offer regular tours for sightseers and local history buffs. And there’s the Bronte Gully and plenty of small parks for picnics, exercise and dog walking.
There’s a compact Woolworths Metro store on Macpherson Street alongside some fabulous family-friendly cafes and restaurants. Convenience and liquor stores, doctors, dentists, hairdressers and a pharmacy are all close by. Waverley and Bondi Junction are just a stone’s throw away, offering plenty of further opportunities for strip and mall shopping.
Bronte has a handful of high profile residents and its share of aspirational homes with no-expense-spared architecture, interiors and landscaping.
That said, the area also has a decent mix of regular family homes, semis and apartments which provide opportunities for a diverse range of home buyers and renters to take part in everything Bronte has to offer.
In terms of property style, Federation homes sit alongside Californian Bungalows, art deco and modern apartments.
It’s a hilly suburb and ocean vistas (or at least glimpses) are common. But even when there’s no direct view, the beach is only a short stroll or drive away.
Current average rents in Bronte are $1500pw for a three-bedroom house and $750pw for a two-bedroom unit.
Bronte’s bus network connects to the transport interchange at Bondi Junction. From there it’s possible to access a wide number of bus or train services which link to the CBD and other parts of Sydney.
For motorists, the local traffic is usually easy to negotiate. Like many other inner city and beachside suburbs, though, parking is at a premium and scoring a public parking spot can be competitive.
The suburb is in the public schools catchment area for Bronte Public School and Rose Bay Secondary College (which has both a regular and selective stream).
Nearby private schools include St Anthony’s and St Charles Primary Schools; St Catherine’s School (the oldest Anglican girls’ school in Australia)l St Clare’s College for Girls; Waverley College (which has both a boys’ prep and high school) and co-ed Moriah War Memorial College at Queens Park.
