It's under $5 to enter these lovely baths. The views are spectacular. The pool is lovely and clean and you have the benefits of shade and no sand. Take a beach chair if you want extra comfort. Nice little kiosk there for rolls, sandwiches, drinks and icecreams. You can even book a massage there. Highly recommend. Have lived in Coogee... More

We are looking for somewhere off the sand and pounding surf and we found just the place. Wylie's is a huge pool with lots of space for sunning. I loved the views from the pool. Watch out for the sea urchins. They are small but they still hurt.

Way, way back when we lived in less complex times, obtaining one's lunch was a straightforward process. There was just 'bread' - no Ciabatta, Turkish or Sourdough; and a query in relation to quinoa would likley result in a quick search of the Kama Sutra. Fillings were simple, limited and wholesome - pesto was what you used Mortein for -... More

We stumbled across the Wylie's Sea Baths after parking the car miles from Coogee Beach & setting out to walk back there. The baths cost less than $5 per adult for entry & we had a fantastic refreshing swim away from the crazy crowds & no sand to deal with after either!

Definitely not just for women and children (as stated in previous review). Great situation just south of Coogee, well maintained whilst preserving an air of 'yesteryear'. Good changing facilities and a great swimming area -probably 30-35M - all with waves from the Pacific breaking over the pool walls. Nice areas to sun yourself - if that is your thing The... More

Just a great place and worth every penny. Still preserved a very pleasant, comfy and homy atmosphere. We always enjoy every minute we spend there!

Loved our swim - its only for women and children. Just watch out for the sea urchins - both my son and I got a couple inbedded in our foot and they are really hard to get out. Other than perfect spot.

This is such a nice pool, on the rocks at Coogee. It's private, you can swim safely, not worry about rips and see the ocean. Fabulous spot.
