Clovelly

Location & Overview

Only a short 7-kilometre trip from the CBD, you'll be spellbound by Clovelly's natural beauty with gorgeous ocean pools, lush parks and crystal-clear aquatic reserve made for snorkelling and diving.

Traditional & History

The advent of this suburb can be traced to the extension of the tram line to the coastline. Before this time, Clovelly was known as "Little Coogee". During the Great Depression Randwick Council instituted a scheme to keep unemployed men employed by building concrete foreshores at Clovelly beach in an attempt to make access to the bay's foreshores easier for bathers.

Housing

Clovelly's housing is higher density than much of Australia with 70.9% of dwellings being units, semi-detached, terrace houses or townhouses and is popular with young families and retirees.

Recreation and Amenities

Clovelly Bay is part of the Bronte-Coogee Aquatic Reserve and makes for a tranquil snorkelling spot, easily accessed via ladders into the ocean. You'll discover an underwater haven teeming with colourful marine life such as blue groper, which locals nicknamed Bluey. It's also a popular spot for scuba divers. Head further south to discover the gorgeous Gordons Bay. This secluded oasis is part of the aquatic reserve and protected by an offshore reef, making it a great diving and snorkelling spot. Follow the Gordons Bay Underwater Nature Trail around the rocky reefs, sandflats and kelp forests.

Dining and Entertainment

Pizzavelly is known for traditional Italian cuisine and Sea Salt Clovelly offers brunch a stone's throw from the water. The Clovelly Hotel is a beautifully restored pub with a fantastic beer garden, while Out of the Blue is a local favourite for takeaway burgers and fish 'n' chips.
