Group Tours: Coogee to Bondi Coastal Walk

Exploring the architecture, nature and culture of Sydney’s wild coastal edge

Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs represent the greatest concentration of wealth in the country, so it’s not surprising that some of Sydney’s most inspiring architecture is scattered along the coast between Bondi Beach and Coogee. Each beach has its own culture, scale, orientation and characteristics and the best projects work hard to respond to their particular site conditions, seeking ways to negotiate the inherent contradictions of residential architecture in a public environment; public v private, introspection v extrospection, intimacy v grandeur and so on.

Flitting between wilderness and architecture, suburb and sea you will discover a variety of projects revealing many threads prevalent in contemporary Sydney architecture. These include public and residential buildings by local heroes Durbach Block Jaggers, Neeson Murcutt Architects, Sam Crawford Architects, Anthony Gill Associates, Renato D’EttorreSmart Design Studio, Andrew Burges Architects and Luigi Rosselli Architects.

This tour is not for the faint hearted as we will cover a lot of territory in a short space of time, but if you enjoy walking, nature and architecture then this tour offers another perspective on the emerald city and how the other half live.
