    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
