The beauty of a skate park is that it's usually free to shred, and all ages are welcome. These skate parks cater for kids and teens, as well as adults, and they're great places to learn. 


Bondi Beach Skate Park

Much like its neighbouring beach, this skate park can get a little crowded. It's essentially a warm-up spot for the Bondi Bowl - which is not recommended for beginners (it's a hard fall and a steep climb out). For younger skaters, the best time to head there is early in the day, when regular skaters are out in the surf.

North Sydney Skate Plaza

This little street plaza has gaps to clear, banks to hit and rails to grind at low enough heights for beginners. It's bright green so your targets are clear, which makes it a little easier to practise landings.
