The future of Coogee Beach is looking bright thanks to a raft of smart technology measures that will be rolled out over the next 12 months, making a trip to the famous eastern suburbs beach easier and more informative, Randwick Mayor Kathy Neilson announced.

“The primary goal of our Coogee Smart Beach Program is to harness the benefits of people-focused technology so that it improves the lives of our residents and visitors,” said Mayor Neilson.

The new measures are thanks to a $300,000 Smart Cities and Suburbs Program Grant from the Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, along with a further $300,000 in matched funds from Randwick City Council.

Coogee Smart Beach plan:

“These innovations will allow visitors to Coogee Beach to make data-driven decisions that will allow them to find parking spots more quickly, assess beach conditions accurately and enjoy well-maintained facilities,” said Mayor Neilson.

Most of the data will be made available online for application developers to integrate into their own solutions, and the technology platform will be adapted to cover other beaches within Randwick City.
