For our next 3 weeks in Sydney we turned to Air BnB and got ourselves an apartment just a 10 minute walk from Coogee Beach.

We quickly became familiar with the local shops, cafes and surroundings – my favourites being melon head juice bar and Gelatissimo.

Seeing as our first day in Coogee was sunny we decided to head to the beach… and obviously it was pretty much empty because it was winter. After shamelessly swimming and even attempting to sunbathe we called it a day and retreated to the electric heater in the apartment.

My favourite part of staying in Coogee was the 6km coastal walk to Bondi. Although at the time we were there parts of the footpath were unusable due to storm damage we were still more than satisfied with the seemingly never ending ocean views.
