Beautiful ocean pool, natural bottom, you see fish, the occasional octopus and plenty of other sea creatures. Finish with a hot shower and coffee. Sim in the Winter if you are game and you will often have the pool to yourself

Preferable to a mega busy coogee beach we came for a lie down and a swim. I’m not a fan of big waves so it was great to have a peaceful swim. Clean and great facilities :)

The baths were a fun stop while we were staying in Coogee. We had the most fun sitting on the ocean wall and having the waves crash on or near us. There was no charge when we were there.

Went there on New Year's Day after noon. The ocean pool is very big and easier to swim that the ocean itself at Coogee Beach. Great place for kids and family. Bring lots of suncream.

A really beautiful setting and good to see a traditional ocean pool well maintained. The Christmas tree in the centre of the pool was a nice touch! However I was a bit disappointed with the experience overall. The adult admission fee is $5. The water...More

I had read the reviews and decided to go to Wylie’s as I read that there was a lifeguard and the water was shallow. Therefore today I went with my two young kids. It was low tide but at the deep end it was still...More

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
