Dog Exercise Beach | Shipwreck | Grassed Reserve (On the Lead) | BBQs | Toilets | Picnic Shelters
CY O'Connor Beach is a great beach for an off the lead walk, splash or swim followed by a picnic or bbq at the grassy reserve afterwards.
The dog exercise beach extends from the CY OConnor (South) Reserve up to the North (Reserve) so you can enjoy a long beach walk and check out the SS Wyola steam tug wreck located about half way along. The SS Wyola hull can still be seen after being dismantled at Robb Jetty (of which old sections are also visible) in 1970.
There are two reserves along CY O'Connor Beach North Coogee. The south reserve is designated on the lead, and features toilets, BBQs, big grassed area, water fountains and large picnic shelters, so it's a nice spot to enjoy a BBQ or picnic with your dog after your beach visit.
The northern reserve is a nice spot if you have kids with a fantastic SS Wyola inspired playground located on a large grassed area. Dogs are allowed on a lead and there are a couple of picnic tables and lots of grassed area, but no BBQs or toilets. Access to the dog exercise beach is located right in front of the playground area (please note it was closed due to erosion when we visited so you may need to use access further south or north).
There is ample parking bays at both reserves. The map below will take you to the CY O'Connor Beach North Coogee South Reserve. To get to the north reserve just follow Robb Road north until you come across the reserve. If you are looking for a dog friendly cafe nearby South Beach Cafe is a nice spot to dine in or grab a coffee to go.
