Project Background

Overlooking Coogee Beach, Coogee Common is a restoration project which has brought the heritage buildings and surrounding landholdings of the old Coogee Hotel, vacant since the 1970s, back to its former glory.

In the two years leading up to its opening as the transformed Coogee Common, the property was tirelessly rehabilitated and restored, the gardens cultivated, and the character of this landmark preserved for generations to come.
