Ronn Moss, he of the chiselled jaw and poncho, aka Ridge Forrester in the daytime soap The Bold and the Beautiful, is seen by more than 450 million television viewers every day. He's been in the soap since its premiere in 1987.
He also turns his hand at being a musician and in 1978 had a huge international hit with his group performing 'Baby Come Back'. He recently chose Sydney as the place to launch his latest CD Uncovered.
Australia, particularly Sydney, is Ronn's second home after Los Angeles, and he's seriously considering becoming a homeowner in the Harbour City. He'll be returning to Australia with his band in March 2006.
Getaway's Natalie Gruzlewski accompanied Ronn on a visit to 'Sculpture By The Sea' and a walk along the beautiful coastline of eastern Sydney.
The walk is a marvellous combination of beaches, parks and amazing views. It began as a state project during the 1930s and now extends from Ben Buckler Point to Waverley Cemetery and on to Coogee.
The path follows a medium gradient cliff-top path from Bondi to Tamarama, taking in Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte beaches. There's occasional seating and several staircases, and beachside parks have picnic spots, barbecues, kiosks, toilets and change-rooms.
'Sculpture By The Sea' at Bondi is in its ninth year and is the country's largest annual free-to-the-public exhibition of contemporary sculpture. It attracts more than 400,000 visitors and exhibits over a hundred works by local and international artists.
The perfect way to end the day was a visit to Nick's Bondi Beach Pavilion, a casually elegant restaurant offering the ultimate in waterfront dining.
Nick's has indoor and outdoor seating for more than 300 and an outdoor bar with great drinks and views. They have extensive set menus for groups of 12 or more and are open every day for lunch and dinner.
