"Great place to live"

South Coogee is a great place to live, it has great transport options and is central to many great places such as maroubra and coogee beaches, shopping centres, the pow hospital, the coastal walk, many childcare options etc. I find living in south Coogee that I have everything I need within 10kms. peaceful neighbourhood even though I live on Malabar Road. Love it.

"South Coogee"

South Coogee is a residential suburb of Sydney, situated 9 kilometres south east of the CBD in the local government area of the City of Randwick and part of the Eastern Suburbs. It is bounded by Coogee to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the east, Kingsford to the west and Maroubra to the south. It has a population of about 5,200 20% of which are under 18 and 21.5% of whom are over 60.

A high percentage of the population (nearly 50%) are renting. A large proportion of the housing in South Coogee is public housing flats that were constructed in the 1950’s and 60’s. There is an aged care facility in the suburb. There are still large areas of open space. However, it is predicted that there will be low or negative population growth in the future.

There is no big commercial area but there are a few local shops for the residents. A reasonably efficient bus service is available to take residents to the city and bigger surrounding commercial centres.

South Coogee Primary School is located in the suburb while older children need to travel to attend high school.

South Coogee is probably not one of the better Eastern Suburbs.

MozZ I totally disagree Yes there is public housing but this is confined in 2 streets so it is not a large proportion. It is a peaceful suburb which considering is a couple of minutes from either Coogee Beach or Maroubra Beach is awesome in summer. Wide streets, ocean walk, many parks, minimal congestion, for an ocean side suburb in Sydney where can you find that? A lovely place for families. I have lived in Concord, Leichardt, Lilyfield & Glebe and can say Sth Coogee is bliss.
