Virtuoso Life Australia Special Edition – May 2017 - 22
Bondi Beach viewed from Icebergs
and (left) Coogee Pavilion.
My family and I love Mackenzies
Beach near Tamarama - it's a
favorite for exploring the rocks
and rock pools, looking for crabs
and sea creatures.
Favorite day trip:
With his colorful, immersive, and
often thrilling images of surfing and
beach life, Bondi-based photographer/surfer Eugene Tan captures the
essence of Australian beach culture.
22 VIRTUOSO LIFE
I tend to like quieter places, and
love going down to the Royal
National Park near Cronulla or
hiring a boat and cruising all the
little bays around Sydney; it's a
pretty magical way to see the city.
Bondi - I live here; my business,
Aquabumps, started here; and
my gallery is here (151 Curlewis
Street; aquabumps.com). I'm
always amazed that this little
village is on the beach but only
15 minutes from a big city. It's
full of all types, but at its core,
it is a community of like-minded
people who all gravitate to and
love the beach.
Great for a drink:
You can't beat Icebergs in Bondi
(1 Notts Avenue; icebergs.com.au)
for the best views in town.
Coogee Pavilion (169 Dolphin
Street, Coogee; merivale.com.au/
coogeepavilion) is a nice addition
about three miles to the east.
