Bellevue Park

Park in Bondi, Coogee & the Eastern Beaches

This quiet suburban park has killer views over Bondi and all the heads: North, South and Middle. Early Irish convicts named it Vinegar Hill, after a battle in the 1798 Irish Rebellion, but Governor Macquarie pooh-poohed the idea and renamed it Bellevue Hill. The surrounding streets are home to a large Jewish community and some of Sydney’s rich and famous, including the Packer media tribe.
