Bondi, New South Wales - Wikipedia
Bondi is said to be a corruption of an Aboriginal word boondi meaning water breaking over rocks. It has been spelt a number of different ways over time, e.g. Boondi, Bundi, Bundye. The current spelling was accepted in 1827. The whole Bondi area was part of an 1809 land grant of 0.81 square kilometres (200 acres) to road-builder William Roberts. In 1851, Edward Smith Hall, editor of the Sydney Monitor, purchased the land for £200.
