Bronte is toddler and preschooler heaven and can get busy but there is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the manifold pleasures here.
Working landwards from the blue sea there is the large golden sand beach between scenic rocky headlands, the big natural rockpool known as the Bogey Hole at the southern end of the beach, the beautiful rockpool known as Bronte Baths with its nice shallow end, the lovely wide promenade.
The reserve with swathes of grass, lots of shade, picnic tables and barbecues, and a model train that gives rides to the kids and their enthusiastic parents on weekends and school holidays and great paths for bikes and trikes. To top it all is a wonderful playground at the rear of the reserve.
Blimey! Bronte has the lot and is a must-see for visitors and a mustvisit-regularly for all youthful and zestful Sydneysiders.
