SNORKELING IN BRONTE-COOGEE AQUATIC RESERVE
Posted on 08 December 2015
If you're living the Aussie beach lifestyle while staying with us at Coogee Beachside, make sure you take the opportunity to visit the Bronte-Coogee Aquatic Reserve. You'll be able to see Blue Groppers, Stinrays, Old Wives and other marine life.
Just minutes away from your accommodation, extending along Sydney's eastern beach coastline, the Aquatic Reserve extends from the southern end of Bronte Beach to the rock baths at Coogee Beach and out to 100m offshore. It covers approximately 43 hectares and includes 4,000m of coastline.
To access the Reserve, you can do this via Bronte Beach via Bronte Road, Clovelly Bay and Gordons Bay accessed via Arden Street or Clovelly Road.
Gordon's Bay is a beautiful little bay just next to Coogee Beach. If you want to get up close and personal with marine life and enjoy the refreshing water, then make sure you visit while on vacation. Snorkel Gordons Bay from 9.30am-midday or Clovelly from 1pm-3.30pm as part of the Sydney Coastal Councils Group’s Summertime program.
Meet at the education trailer in the Clovelly car park - cost $15.
Coogee Beachside TIP: Blue Groppers are most friendly fish - they are more that happy if you feed them and they LOVE prawns!
