    If you're in Coogee and don't want to travel far, the next beach over is Clovelly. Calm waters and kid friendly. One nice cafe, it's a lot quieter than the surrounding beaches.
    I agree with people who've said not to bother with the central coast. It's an hour and a half drive and it's nice but there isn't a lot to do compared with Sydney.

    Oh and you can do the Coogee to Bondi coastal walk! There's a footpath all along the coast and the views are beautiful

    We live on the central coast about 2 min drive to soldiers beach, we love it theres a rockpool there too which is great. Terrigal is also nice with a sml lagoon for kids. There are so many nice beaches on the coast, im so glad we live where we do 😊 enjoy your holiday

    Hey I have been doing some planning and we have 5 full days (6 nights)Depending on weather I was thinking (not in order):
    1) Drive to palm beach and spend most of the day there (if a hot day)
    2) Explore Circular quay - Opera house, Harbour bride views, The rocks. Then in the afternoon relax back at Coogee beach. (Even just to put feet in and relax)
    3) Catch a Ferry across to Sydney Zoo
    4)Darling Harbour, explore the area, maybe go to either Sydney Aquarium or Wildlife Zoo
    5) Botanical gardens ( should we?)- Lady Macquaries chair. Then relax back at Coogee beach that afternoon.

    Other ideas:
    We also want to check out Bondi beach, maybe not to swim, just to visit.
    Wattamolla beach?

    What do you think?

    Wattamolla beach?

    What do you think?
    1) yep palm beach is amazing, cute cafes and burger shops to get lunch , beautiful homes to sticky beak at and a nice day out
    2) technically you could do the opera house and circular quay on day 3 when you do the zoo? What about going into the city , queen Victoria building, centrepoint tower, Hyde Park barracks, shopping
    3)great day out
    4)darling harbour is great, tons of things to do with the kids, go to china town for yum Cha!
    5) botanical gardens are nice but I would go to Bondi beach and suss that out, go for a drive to Watson's bay and have fish and chips on the harbour , look at all the cool houses, walk around double bay etc

    Wattamolla - in the national park? It's nice but i think for your first trip I'd stay around the city and take advantage of your location , maybe next trip do the north and south coasts?
