          We've met some really cool people here. The management are really friendly, the staff are great and the patrons are easy fun loving people. If you're after an unforgettable fun experience we recommend staying at Surfside coogee.

          Coogee
          Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
          smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
          Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
          that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
          family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
          across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
          in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
          of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
