The Basics

The welcome blue waters of Coogee Beach mark the end of the spectacular Bondi-to-Coogee coastal walk. You can make the roughly hour-long walk by yourself or with a private guided tour that introduces you to the landmarks—and some of the characters—along the way and has the added benefit of including breakfast and lunch. Other tour options include visiting as part of a trike motorcycle tour of the eastern beaches, or flying over it in a helicopter.

When to Get There

Coogee Beach is attractive year-round, but Sydney is at its most appealing from September through November and from March to May. These months avoid both high and low seasons and promise comfortable temperatures and fewer crowds. Ocean baths (open saltwater pools connected to the sea) are open from sunrise to sunset.

Ocean Baths

For a really safe swim, dip your toes in a walled ocean bath, which offers particularly calm waters protected from the strong Pacific waves. Wylie’s Baths is a few minutes’ walk south of Coogee, and city-owned McIver’s Baths, which is Australia’s only remaining women-only seawater bath, is perched on the headland between Coogee Beach and Wylie’s Baths.
