Coogee

Location and Overview

Coogee is a beloved coastal suburb situated in the eastern suburbs renowned for its stunning beaches, vibrant atmosphere, and scenic coastal walks, Coogee offers a laid-back beach lifestyle while being conveniently close to Sydney's central business district (CBD), approximately 8 kilometres away.

Traditional & History

The traditional owners of the land are the Bidjigal and Gadigal people of the Eora nation. The name Coogee is derived from the Aboriginal word "koojah", which means "the smell of seaweed drying". Coogee was pronounced a township in 1838. The suburb's popularity as a go-to beach was solidified in 1902 when the electric tram offered easy access from the city. Today, Coogee is a part of Randwick Council and is well connected with its many bus and tram routes.

Housing

Coogee features a mix of housing options, including apartments, freestanding homes, and terrace houses. Beachfront properties, often in high demand, offer breathtaking ocean views, while properties farther inland provide a quieter residential setting. The real estate market caters to varying budgets and preferences.

Recreation and Amenities

Coogee's main attraction is its beautiful beach, renowned for its golden sands, clear waters, and vibrant coastal promenade. It also boasts various parks, including Dunningham Reserve and Goldstein Reserve and offers fitness facilities, yoga studios, and outdoor workout spaces catering to health-conscious residents. Additionally, the Wylie's Baths and McIver's Ladies Baths provide unique ocean swimming experiences.

Dining and Entertainment

The jewel in Coogee's vibrant cafe, bar and restaurant scene is Coogee Pavilion. Housed in the historic former Coogee swimming baths and aquarium, the multi-level complex includes fine-dining restaurant Mimi's, as well as a casual family-friendly bistro and rooftop bar. Other great eateries include Coogee Wine Room, Louis, X74, Courtyard Cafe and Sugarcane Restaurant, while the Coogee Bay Hotel has been the locals' pub since 1873.
