The Bondi Pavilion has been at the heart of Bondi Beach since 1928, when people used to enjoy Turkish Baths and dance in the ballroom. It’s a treasure trove of somewhat hidden events and activities including a theatre, gallery, music and pottery studios, a screening room, and halls for hire. You will also find the Tourist Information centre within The Bondi Pavilion.
There’s always something happening at The Pavilion, no matter what your interest or age.
