“Almost as old as Methuselah”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

The original Wylies Baths still stand in their headland spot, offering bracing and refreshing seawater surges at Coogee. In some ways, it's quaint and old-fashioned, but the old-timers who frequent it regularly say they wouldn't have it any other way.

“A perfect swim”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Althought there is little area to actually swim, particularly when it is busy, the surrounds and the coffee allow the cool weather to take a back seat. If there is not too many swimming it is relaxing and invirgorating.

“Paradise at South Coogee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

Lovely old fashioned tidal sea baths with sunny decking and good coffee. Lets's hope they don't spoil the ambience by overdeveloping it as muted in the press.
