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 footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.

Josephine went above and beyond to make me feel at home and welcome. She helped me with setting up my Australian superannuation and no matter how busy she was always found the time to have a friendly chat with me! Josephine makes the hostel what it is there and works unbelievably

Right opposite the beach which was ideal for the Coogee to Bondi walk! Dead easy to get into town too (for Opera House etc) with a bus stop right opposite - cost about $4 each way roughly.
Looks like it has just been totally refurbished (in the last few months apparently) and cle

When did Mad Monkey take I er the property?
Me and my cousin have been out of this place for over a wk now. And I still get chills at the thought of this place. It's gonna haunt me for a very long time. Absolutely horrible place. Would never recommend this place ever.
Does this hotel close to any downtown area? If I go there, what transportation should I use? and how much does it take? Also, I wanna know how can I access the airport to this hotel. Sorry a lot of questions. I’m planning that going to Australia with my mom for the first time.
