What The Locals Love
Coogee locals love getting out amongst it. With the beach, Wylie’s Baths rock pool, dog park and coastal walk beckoning, there’s something to keep every outdoor lover happy! You’re more than likely to run into a familiar face along the main strip, Coogee Bay Road, where you’ll find everything from cafes and juice bars to boutiques and grocers. Coogee’s restaurant scene has amped up in recent years with the arrival of Sugarcane and mimi’s. And for those who love a good burg, Betty’s Burgers has made a welcome new addition to the Coogee landscape. But for old faves, it’s hard to go past long-standing institutions Barzura and La Spiaggia. For drinks, there’s a spot (and a drop) to suit every occasion. With one of the most spectacular vantages, a spritzer at The Coogee Pavilion or ‘The Pav’ as the locals know it is an absolute must. Or for a good drop from a 400 strong wine list, try the more intimate Coogee Wine Room.
Coogee once had its very own English seaside style amusement pier stretching 180m out to sea. Complete with a ballroom, theatre and restaurant the pier opened in 1928, but was damaged by a bad storm and later demolished in 1934. On occasion after extreme surf conditions, the historical foundations of the original pier can be seen on the shoreline offering a rare glimpse of Coogee’s golden age.
