Dolphin Point information
This grassy tract at Coogee Beach’s northern end has superb ocean views and the sea-salty Giles Baths ocean pool. A sobering shrine commemorates the 2002 Bali bombings. Coogee was hit hard by the tragedy, with 20 of the 89 Australians killed coming from hereabouts.
Formerly known as Dunningham Park, its name was changed to honour the six members of the Coogee Dolphins rugby league team who died in the blast.
