Sydney's Mysterious Disappearing Beach, Which Only Pops Up Every Few Years, Is Back!
It's been a while
Even some lifelong Sydneysiders would be surprised to learn of a secret eastern suburbs beach that only appears every few years.
But when the conditions are just right, a small strip between Bondi and Tamarama is transformed into one of the tiniest beaches in Australia - and possible the world.
MacKenzies Beach, located about 100 metres north of Tamarama, is usually nothing more than a rocky outcrop, albeit one with a spectacular view.
But when a specific set of ocean conditions bring enough sand up onto the rocks, it becomes a temporary oasis for people to swim, surf and play with their dogs.
Here's a before:
And an after:
The beach usually sticks around for a couple of months before being washed away again, so try and get there sooner, rather than later.
A word of warning, though; understandably, the water is quite rocky, and the surf can be rough. So be careful.
