“This is my first ukulele. The sound quality is so much better than I expected. The extras in the bundle were great and really useful.
The ukulele itself is just beautiful. Can’t fault the service or the product”
- Hamish M.

Changing the way you experience ukuleles
Whether you’re a beginner or experienced ukulele player, we believe you deserve a wonderful, amazingly looking and sounding instrument.
The ukulele industry is drowning in a sea of generalist music shops, who only care about selling you the most expensive item they have in store.
And that’s between the only 4 or 5 (crappy) models they stock.
Let me ask you:
Ever stepped foot into your local music shop and asked to try a ukulele?
Chances are the one you tried was probably dusty, out of tune and that the “expert” you were talking to was at best a guitar player, and at worst a drummer (no offense to either!).
That’s not how your first experience with a ukulele should be.
We want to change that.

One Strum at a Time
Hello, I'm Marcus, one of the proud co-founders of Bondi Ukuleles.
My journey with music began early, embedded in the rhythms of a family that cherished melody and harmony. At just five years old, my life shifted tune as we relocated to Sydney, enabling my father to join the prestigious Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
In the musical whirl of my childhood, each visit to a friend or family member's home echoed with the soulful strains of a piano or the dulcet tones of another beloved instrument. These experiences, like a timeless refrain, have been imprinted deeply into the fabric of my memories.
As the son of a piano tuner, our family home was a symphony in itself - perpetually alive with the sounds of various musical instruments. It was within this vibrant cacophony that my love for music truly took root.
Initially, I found myself captivated by the rich resonance of my father's lovingly restored vintage pianos. Soon, my hands ventured to the versatile strings of the guitar, drawn by its myriad of expressible emotions. Yet, it was the ukulele that struck a unique chord within me, sparking an interest that was to become a lifelong passion. Today, I'm humbled and excited to share that same love and fascination for ukuleles through Bondi Ukuleles.
What a Ukulele Could Do
Hi, I’m Joel the Co-founder of Bondi Ukuleles.
My passion for ukuleles was born out of inspiration.
A trip to Hawaii and dozens of locals happily playing on every beach lit the match.
But since my childhood years and thanks to my parents, what inspired me, has always been the feeling of making someone I love proud.
That’s the same feeling I want you to have, the first time you play your uke in front of your family and friends.
That’s what your musical instrument can do.
Whether it’s for a few minutes or for a lifetime of playing, until it’s passed down to your grandkids.
Every single decision we make at Bondi Ukuleles, is anchored to making people’s lives better.
Anchored to making your ukulele worthy of such special moments like Christmases and birthdays.
Because after all, we’re a big ukulele family.
And I can’t wait for you to join us.
With you every step of the way
Meet the team
