The History of Eastern and Southern Suburbs of Sydney
When learning about the history of the area, there is no better place to start than at the beginning. The Eastern suburbs, notably around La Perouse is Kameygal country(*1). La Perouse marks the initial spot where the First Fleet landed in 1788 before Sydney Cove. Since then, Kameygal is one of the few places to have a protected area with a Local Aboriginal Land Council(*1,2).
Excellent Home Designs and Quality Craftsmanship
A short walk down Arden St gives a glimpse into both the past and future of this bustling neighbourhood. Coogee’s streets are lined with restored art deco shop fronts and contemporary residences(*3). With such a diverse range of architectural styles, builders are never short of new challenges and opportunities to showcase their craftsmanship.
With breathtaking coastlines, pristine beaches, bustling eateries, and plenty to do, it is no wonder Sydney’s Eastern Beaches are a prime choice for new home builds, renovations, and extensions.
Beaches in the Eastern Suburbs
There is no doubt that beaches in Sydney’s east are complete frontrunners in Australia.
Coogee is one of the region’s oldest beaches, offering a relaxed atmosphere and a starting point for the 6km Bondi to Coogee scenic coastal walk(*4). Nested between Bondi and Coogee are Brontë and Clovelly. Both of these hidden gems offer a quieter alternative (from the youthful hotspots) for families with green spaces and barbecue facilities.
Of course, we cannot forget about Australia’s most famous beach, Bondi – need we say more? As an experienced Bondi builder, we could not recommend this beachside paradise enough!
Cafés and restaurants in Sydney’s East and South
There are plenty of delicious eateries along the eastern coast that can satisfy any palette. If you are a working professional wanting a change of scenery while meeting your deadlines, cafes (with free wi-fi) abound. Awaken your senses with deliciously roasted coffee and mouth-watering dishes – all within a stone’s throw from the sea.
Greenspaces, Parks, and Hiking Around Sydney
There are many parklands which give a peaceful break from city life. The Centennial Parklands offers a 360-hectare lush green sanctuary(*5). It is a prime spot for walking, running, cycling, and picnicking – you can even try horse-riding or go for a round of golf.
Cooper Park is another picturesque paradise that is located slightly inland at Bellevue Hill. This enchanting forest-like reserve is perfect for dog walking and trekking alongside scenic cliffside walking trails(*6). Keep an eye on local property auctions to pick up a beautiful home to renovate.
Each suburb is unique and can accommodate many different types of Sydneysiders. Whether you are a young professional looking to build your dream home in Coogee, or you are looking to build in the relaxed Brontë area with your family, there is something here for everyone.
