A neighbourhood that loves to bask in the outdoors, Coogee is a vibrant beachside destination that attracts outdoor enthusiasts every day of the week.
Holding centre stage is Coogee Beach and the expansive green space of Goldstein Reserve, which flows up along the cliff-side into Dolphin Point and Grant Reserve. This natural playground is prime real estate during the warmer months for barbeques, frisbee throwing, cricket and football games.
Due to its dangerous shore breaks, beachgoers can opt to swim in one of the two sea pools at the southern end of Coogee Beach, Wylies or McIvers Baths, or in neighbouring Gordons Bay, which is loved for its snorkelling.
The unobtrusive café and dining scene along Coogee Bay Road and Arden Street has a mix of casual and relaxed café and dining options catering to the transient backpacking crowd as well as the locals.
