Bronte is a beachside suburb of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Bronte is located 8 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district, in the Waverley Council local government area of the Eastern Suburbs.
Bronte Beach sits on Nelson Bay, surrounded by Bronte Park. Bronte offers scenic cliff-top walking paths south to Coogee via the Waverley Cemetery and north to Tamarama and Bondi Beach. The cliff-top path offers views which extend from Ben Buckler in the north to Malabar in the south. Bronte is located about 2.5km south of Bondi Beach.
Bronte has a strong surf culture. The Bronte surf lifesaving club was founded in 1903 and claims to be the oldest surf lifesaving club in the world. An annual long distance ocean swimming event is held in December each year between Bondi Beach and Bronte.
The Bronte Road beachside shopping precinct is noteworthy because in recent years every shop has been converted into a restaurant, leaving no stores of any other type.
