Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker surprised locals in Bondi Beach this week when they made an unexpected visit to Bonditony’s Burger Joint.
The reality TV star, 44, and her rock star husband, 48, touched down in Sydney on Tuesday ahead of Travis’ band blink-182’s Australian tour.
The couple jetted Down Under with their son Rocky, three months, and Kourtney’s daughter Penelope, 11, and son Reign, nine, who she shares with her ex Scott Disick.
Shortly after arriving in Australia, Kourtney and Travis decided to take a tour of the popular beachside suburb and try some local takeaway food.
Bonditony’s Burger Joint took to Instagram on Wednesday to share a snap of the famous American couple dropping in.

Posing for a polaroid snap outside of the eatery, Kourtney looked stylish in a cream coat with black stitching as she pouted and flashed the peace sign for the camera.
Travis cut a casual figure in a white T-shirt and black trousers as he wrapped his arm lovingly around his wife’s shoulders.
The venue’s owner Tony Gosden couldn’t help but share his surprise that the mega-stars had stopped by for a visit in an accompanying caption.
He wrote: ‘Never thought I’d see Travis Barker and Kourtney at Bonditonys! But I guess everyone needs a bit of BTs goodness hahahaha.’
Elsewhere on their visit down Bondi Beach, the couple also stopped to pose for photographs with eager fans as they dropped into vegan café, Funky Pies.

The couple appeared to be in good spirits as they posed with a fan, while Kourtney’s son Reign sweetly photobombed the snap.
Their Bondi visit came before Travis had to jet out to Perth to reunite with his blink-182 bandmates Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus ahead of their Australian tour kicking off on Thursday night.
He was spotted arriving at the airport on Wednesday for the five-hour flight to Perth, while Kourtney seemingly stayed in Sydney with the kids.
American pop-punk band blink-182 have returned to Australia for the first time in seven years for their epic world tour, which will kick off in Perth on February 8.
The trip also marks Kourtney’s first time in Australia since 2013, when she and sisters Khloe and Kim brought over the Kardashian Kollection, and her first big international trip with her son Rocky, who was born on November 1.
blink-182 last toured Down Under in 2013, but Travis did not join the band due to his fear of flying, which stemmed from being a passenger in a fatal plane crash in 2008.
Brooks Wackerman, of Bad Religion and Avenged Sevenfold, filled in on the sticks.
Travis has credited ‘the power of love’ from his wife Kourtney for helping him overcome his fear of flying.
He said his partner had ‘healed’ him and his children following the crash in South Carolina 15 years ago, in which he was one of only two survivors.
Speaking to the LA Times, he said: ‘I think the power of love really helped me. Kourt made it so I fly, my kids fly now. She healed us.
‘It takes a little piece of my life every time I fly. The amount of stress and anxiety it causes is just unbearable. It brings up all this old trauma, and sometimes I’m like, ‘Is this worth it?’
‘But I don’t like anything having a hold on me, either — I don’t like being afraid, and I don’t like having things from my past control my future.’
Travis shares children Alabama, 17, and Landon, 20, with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler, he is stepfather to Shanna’s daughter Atiana de la Hoya, 24.
On flights, Travis puts on noise-canceling headphones so he ‘cannot hear the landing gear retract’, listens to guided recordings from an energy healer and prays for loved ones he has lost.
In August 2021, Travis successfully took his first ride on an airplane for the first time in 13 years when he jetted to Cabo San Lucas with Kourtney.
In September 2008, Travis boarded a private jet in South Carolina to head to Los Angeles following a show, while accompanied by his friend Adam ‘DJ AM’ Goldstein, his security guard Charles ‘Che’ Still, and his assistant Chris Baker.
The trip Down Under marks Travis and Kourtney’s first big international holiday with their baby boy Rocky, who was born on November 1

As the small plane was attempting to take off, one of the tires suffered a blow out, causing the craft to overshoot the runway, burst through the airport’s fence and over the nearby highway, and finally crash into the embankment on the side of the road.
The pilot, Sarah Lemmon, and the co-pilot, James Bland, were killed within minutes from smoke inhalation and burns as the plane erupted into flames on impact, according to the Chicago Tribune. Still and Baker were also killed on impact.
Travis had third-degree burns over 65 percent of his body and had to spend three months in the hospital while having skin grafts and 26 surgeries to repair the damage.
After the crash, Travis was overcome with a debilitating fear even at the sight of an airplane.
