Things to Do in Coogee Beach
Our heritage-listed Coogee accommodation isn’t the only historical building in the area. In fact, Coogee Beach has been a hotspot for beachgoers since the early 1800s! Relics of the past are scattered all throughout Coogee, Randwick and the surrounding suburbs.
This seaside town has come a long way since its humble beginnings. Now, you’ll find rooftop views at Coogee Pavilion and high-class wine bars like the Coogee Wine Room.
Have a picnic at one of the beachside parks with classic fish and chips from JP McCaffrey's Traditional Fish & Chips or splurge on fine dining complete with caviar and vintage spirits at the new Merivale restaurant, Mimi’s. The point is, there’s something for everyone at Coogee Beach.
Don’t forget the beach itself! Protected by one of Australia’s oldest Surf Life Saving Clubs, the bright blue waters and soft, white sand makes the perfect backdrop for any sunny day. Plus, you’ll find unique rock pools at every spot along the Coogee Coastline and at either end of the Beach including:
- McIver’s Baths
- Giles Baths
- Wylie’s Baths
- Ross Jones Memorial Baths
For the adventurous types, go snorkelling with a twist with Sydney Underwater Scooter Tours. And regardless of your temperament, the Coastal Walk is a must.
