One of Sydney’s most famous beaches and the most popular beach with the gay community. There are plenty of restaurants and cafés at Bondi Beach, serving food and drinks all day. Remember, it is illegal to drink alcohol on the beach itself.
Take the train to Bondi Junction and then a bus the final 2 km to the beach. Or catch a bus from Circular Quay or Oxford Street (380 or 333 with destination of North Bondi or Dover Heights, Watson Bay or Bondi Beach).
Driving is not recommended as parking near the beach is severely limited.

This 100-metre-long official nudist beach overlooks Sydney Harbour and attracts a gay & lesbian crowd. Take everything you need for the day (water, snacks, etc.) as you will not find any outlets on or near the beach.

Lady Jane (or Lady Bay) Beach is a relatively small nudist beach that attracts a mostly gay crowd.
Take the ferry from The Rocks to Watsons Bay then walk along the shoreline.
The beautiful Manly Beach is one of Sydney’s northern beaches and a popular seaside destination in its own right. Manly’s long sandy beach is generally less crowded than Bondi Beach.
Although the beach does not have a specific gay area, it is popular with gay sunbathers who are less interested in the ‘scene’ and more ‘sea’.
To get to Manly, take the ferry from Circular Quay and then walk through Manly town centre to the beach. There is a huge choice of restaurants and cafés in the town and along the beachfront.

At the end of Anzac Parade (about 15 km southeastern of Sydney CBD), there is a beach called Congwong Beach. And if you walk to the East End and walk over the rocks, there is another beach called ‘Little Congwong Beach’. This is a mixed nudist beach which does have a good population of gays.
At the eastern end of this little beach is a headland with a lot of push areas where it is known to be a gay cruising area for lots of outdoor fun a beautiful beach.
Special thanks to Reggie for info about Little Congwong Beach.
