At the start of the journey, the driver starts an audio tape which gives information on areas being passed on the way to the beaches, like Woolloomooloo Bay, Kings Cross Rushcutters Bay, where the Yacht Club is, and Double Bay, an exclusive shopping area, to name a few.
We chose to alight at Gap Park, where there are views of the harbour, the Heads, sandstone cliffs, and the sea. We made our way back to the bus stop through the grounds of HMAS Watson Naval Base and continued our journey on the next bus to Bondi Beach. Alighting again at Bondi, we sat on the beach and watched the surfers and famous lifeguards, then continued our journey on foot via the cliff walk with panoramic views of Bondi to Tamarama Bay (or Bronte on certain days) to await the next bus back to Sydney.
As we were tired, we decided to do the complete journey again, and this time was so much better--the driver did his own commentary and was so funny. He also stopped at different places for photo opportunites, pointing out the pelicans waiting to be fed on the restaurant roof at Rose Bay and the babies on another roof waiting for their parents. He detoured from the route to show us his favourite house, the area where he was brought up, and also gave his views on the Kings Cross area and some of the unsavoury characters. This was a realy enjoyable trip.

Some of the stops are: Kings Cross, Double Bay, the Gap Park (very fine stop), Watsons Bay, Bondi Beach, Coogee Beach and Oxford Street. You can reboard the bus at any of the places where you see the blue Bondi Explorer signs. Traffic, weather and other conditions may change the route and times. Listen to your driver as he advises you along the route.
No tipping. Wheelchair accessible. This is not as interesting a route for families with small children as the Sydney Explorer Red Bus route.
