Coogee is a popular beachside suburb and locality in the Southern Beaches of Sydney, the capital of the Australian state of New South Wales. Coogee is understandably popular with backpackers and holiday makers.
After Bondi Beach, Coogee is probably the most popular of the so-called City beaches that face onto the Pacific Ocean and back on to Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.
Coogee is host to the home ground of Randwick Rugby Union Club, one of the main teams in the Sydney rugby union football competition. Alternate weekends see Randwick and an opposing team battle it out on Coogee Oval, just over the road from the beach - a great way to spend a winter afternoon!
