Suburb Profiles


Coogee takes its name from the lake, Lake Coogee, in the area which translates to "Body of water" in the native Aboriginal Nyoongar language. The current residential area of Coogee commenced development in the 1980s although some buildings still standing in that area date back to the early nineteenth century when first developments began on Rockingham Road, being the first road to join Fremantle and Rockingham. Coogee is comprised of approximately 2000 homes and is still one of the most sought after Coastal locations surrounding Perth, now offering a multitude of modern amenities including the Coogee Beach Lifesaving club, schools, cafes and shops.
