The man had significant head injuries and died at the scene.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner.

Officers said a crime scene was established and an investigation is underway to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Earlier this month, a man was slammed for sunbathing on a cliff in Bondi, with locals concerned about the dangerous stunt.

"Aside from fencing, staying clear of obvious risk points such a cliff edges is just common sense," Waverley Mayor Paula Masselos told Yahoo News Australia at the time.

"Council calls on all residents and visitors to avoid this dangerous behaviour."

The famed cliffs near Bondi Beach and surrounds attract people throughout the year.
