Coogee is undoubtedly all about the beach. When residents aren’t by the water, you’ll likely find them in one of the many eateries in the area which sports a sensational mash-up of organic snacks for the health-conscious and the ubiquitous fish and chip and burger joints.
Spoilt for choice, Coogee residents could easily go for weeks without leaving the suburb.
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.
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. The expansive green space of Goldstein Reserve, which flows up along the cliff-side into Dolphin Point and Grant Reserve is a natural playground during the warmer months for barbeques, frisbee throwing, cricket and football games.
THE COASTAL WALK
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.
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.
The Pavilion spreads over three floors and 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.
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.
Location, location, location might be the common catchcry of the real estate industry, but when you have that in spades (as Coogee does), the order of the day becomes views, views, views.
