Eating takeaway fish and chips from Bondi’s Best on the grassy knoll of North Bondi is one of the best things you can do in Sydney — hands down. Fish and chips make winter taste like summer and summer taste like some kind of Coke ad for summer that’s too good to be an actual thing that you get to live through. But the real magic here is the view back to one of the most postcard-perfect views in Sydney.
North Bondi's little grassy knoll at the end of the beach has become a bit of a local go-to for picnics, solid book-reading sessions and all-round social get-togethers. Over the last few years, the local police have become a bit ancy with the whole drinking in public thing, so watch the BYO. Locals bring sound systems, cook up barbecues and parade their tiny dogs on the promenade. The perfect spot for long summery Sunday afternoons — if you can get a spot.
