Bondi Beach is one of the Australia's most well-known beaches and among the world's most famous. Bondi Beach is located in a suburb of Sydney, 7 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district. Bondi Beach is well served by public transport. It is about one kilometre long and has many visitors from far and wide throughout the year. This long crescent of golden sand, has long been a paradise for the surf set and sun. The founding of the surf lifesaving club at Bondi Beach in 1906 gave start to the formation of the other local clubs and to a global movement. People seek out Bondi Beach for its trendy seafront cosmopolitan milieu and cafes as much as for the beach. The Bondi Pavilion Community Centre, built in 1928 as changing rooms, has been a community centre since the 1970s. It is now a busy venue for plays, festivals, craft displays and films. The main shopping street is in Hall Street. Accommodation is plentiful near and around Bondi Beach and varies from budget to luxury.
