A gem of Sydney coast, a truly remarkable suit-all-taste location for a variety of photographic activities. I have written a Maroubra Beach Photography Guide to this location. In short, this area is a photographic paradise.
Whatever your tastes are, you’ll find it here. There are cliffs, sand, rock pool, people, surfers, crashing waves, prolonged coastline. Just everything! If you are not a photographer, you can do rock fishing, sunburning or walking around. Also, people often job in this area. There is a training section for doing workouts, kids playground and a bbq area (it’s Straya, mate). Regarding the fishing, keep in mind, you need a license and a life jacket to do it legally.

If you are driving, you can park along the Marine Pde or use one of three car parks in the area. One is on the Marine Pde near the Mahon Pool, the other one is near the playground at the end of Fitzerald Ave and the third one is in between.
To get here from the CBD, please use one of the buses going back and forth. They are 397, X97, 396, X96, L94. Please use 353 to get there from Bondi Junction or Coogee Beach.
There are several online cameras showing current conditions. The best one, in my opinion, is this one: https://www.coastalwatch.com/surf-cams-surf-reports/nsw/maroubra.
Coogee to Bondi Walk
Maroubra Beach is not the part of the Coogee to Bondi Walk and it takes a while to walk from there to Coogee (the road isn’t impressing at all). So if you plan to walk from Coogee to Bondi, take a taxi or 353 bus first and then start the walk from Coogee.
Please rate 🙂
