Swim superstar’s namesake beach is one of her favourite places
SUPERSTAR swimmer Bronte Campbell has a special connection with one of our most iconic locations. Not only does she share a name with Bronte Beach, she also happens to love hanging out on its golden sands. The Olympian and her sister, Cate, who were born in Malawi, Africa and later lived with their family in Brisbane, nominated taking a swim in our world-famous ocean beaches as the best thing about Sydney life in a show of support for 2016’s #SnapSydney campaign. “It’s the City of Beaches ... head to Bronte which was named after me!” she joked. “Head down to Bondi, head down to Bronte ... hang out in the sun and have a good time.”
#SnapSydney is aimed at bringing communities together.
Over 24 hours on Wednesday, November 16 we’re inviting you to photograph pictures celebrating Sydney life, and sharing them with the hashtag #SnapSydney.
Last year, the #SnapSydney response was staggering, with more than 11,000 pictures posted.
Amateurs joined more than 100 professionals to shoot their local area and stunning landmarks from the sea, land and air.
This year, for the first time, #SnapSydney and #SnapCoast are going national with events held in capital cities around the country.
In the lead-up to the big day, readers have been invited to show us their snaps.
This week, we want to see your favourite morning moment. Shoot your favourite place for breakfast or the best coffee on your block.
Stand up comic, TV and radio star Dave Hughes revealed his favourite way to start a Sydney day.
“At The Pantry Manly, cos you can see and smell the ocean and the food and coffee is spot on,” he said.
“I’m an eggs on toast dude with lots of sides!”
Although he hails from Melbourne, Hughes confessed Sydney “has natural scenery that Melbourne can’t compete with”.
“I’ve flown in at least a thousand times and marvelled at ... how bloody pretty it is,” he said.
