The suburb of Tamarama (a prime area) is named after its beach, which nestled between two other beaches, Bondi and Bronte. Tamarama is often referred to as “Glamarama” because it is frequented by celebrities and trendsetters, many of whom live in this largely residential suburb.

Outdoor living is emphasized in Tamarama and reflected in the design of its apartments and houses. Traditional shops and beach kiosks also abound.

Tamarama Beach draws board riders from all over the globe who want to try its 15-foot waves. However, the beach is considered the most dangerous patrolled beach in New South Wales and even experienced swimmers are no match for the sudden rip currents.
