Gordons Bay located south of Clovelly, and north of Coogee Beach.
It is a picturesque small 75 m long beach with a paved walkway around the perimeter, and well worth the walk.
You can only access Gordons Bay by walking by the surrounding streets or the Coastal Walk.
If you plan on driving or coming in a small bus, then head for the Clovelly headland car park.
Gordons Bay more a surfing beach than a swimming beach, because it hard to get too. So you will usually see the locals surfing the Bomie (a rock platform).
An offshore reef protects Gordons Bay, making it a popular dive spot. The calm waters hide a unique underwater nature trail.
The Gordons Bay Underwater Nature Trail is a self-guided scuba diving or snorkelling adventure. The trail like a bushwalking track in the wilderness, only it’s underwater. It usually takes about forty minutes to dive the 600 metre trail, or on a clear day, it’s possible to snorkel the underwater trail from the surface.
Concrete filled drums about 20 meters apart linked by a chain form the trail with information displayed on steel plaques.
The pocket-sized beach is lined with racks of boats from the local fishing club, reminiscent of a European fishing village.
Secluded and quiet, the bay is abundant in native flora. The dense vegetation provides a haven for many small birds and lizards.
Local resident Obed West believes word “Coogee” an original Aboriginal place name was originally the name of the next bay to the north, now known as Gordons Bay. Coogee was orginally called, “Bobroi”.
