Lifestyle

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.

Neighbours

With incredible access to beachside living, whilst being within reach of the city, Coogee attracts a more youthful population, with a high percentage of locals falling into the 25 to 39 year age bracket.

Although much quieter than its world-famous neighbour, Bondi Beach, Coogee attracts its own share of expats and travellers who crave a more low-key urban beachside retreat.

Locals love

Capturing the attention of people from around the world, Coogee Beach is a quieter cousin to neighbouring Bondi. Coogee is loved for surfing and swimming, with two sea pools at its southern end.

Spreading out over three floors, The Pavilion caters to family fun with a casual dining and a games area suitable for children of all ages. Head upstairs to four bars with an impressive inside out flow that soaks up the views across Coogee Beach.

The trail that hugs the coastline between Bondi Beach and Maroubra Beach forms the Coastal Walk. In all its rugged beauty, this is one of the most popular walks in the greater Sydney region.

Grant Reserve, Goldstein Reserve, Coogee Oval and Dolphin Point – the network of parks are well equipped for barbeques by the water and active play, whether it’s a balmy summer’s evening or a cool winter’s day.

Property

Coogee has a mishmash of apartments and duplexes, from Art Deco to Mediterranean to non-descript blond bricks – Brook, Arden Dolphin and Beach Streets showcase the variety that can be found in this area.

Amidst all the multi-storey dwellings there is a scattering of family homes that vary from cutting-edge and sleek in design to the tired and worn homes craving the attention of reno addicts. Gordon Avenue and Alexandria Parade are the most sought after streets for houses with ocean views.
