          Awesome location. Right by the beach and right by all the good restaurants and bars! They also have many things to do or rent out. Also a great place to find work. Awesome workers and people that are staying there

          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
