Sydney, city of expensive, does cater for some cheap pastime activities. Having a BBQ at Bronte beach is my favourite way of spending a sunny afternoon. The BBQ’s are free to use and well maintained and the sheltered picnic tables are perfect to laze around even if it’s a bit windy.
BBQ and a glass of wine
The downside is the ban on alcohol. Because hanging out with friends and having some sausages or burgers screams out for some beers or a bottle of wine doesn’t it?! So we discretely enjoyed our “grape juice” and had a lovely afternoon in the winter sun.
