BBQ at Coogee Beach

On a beautiful sunny day, is there anything better than getting together with friends and family for a good old-fashioned barbecue?

There are 26 public barbecue units in Randwick City, all are free to use, and all are timed to operate from 8am to 8pm every day of the year, with a daily cleaning schedule.

Follow these handy tips to make sure you get the best out of your barbecuing experience this summer!

Share the space

Randwick City barbecues cannot be booked and operate on a ‘first come first served’ basis, so it’s important to share the facilities with others. On a beautiful day, you may want to arrive a little early to secure your spot in the barbe-queue. The barbecues are there to be enjoyed by everyone, so once you’re finished, clean up and move on so everyone can have a turn.

BBQ Cleaning at Coogee

How to clean

Barbecues along our beachside parks are cleaned every morning and are monitored by staff throughout the day. However, all users are asked to clean the barbecue after use to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all. To clean the barbecue, a paper towel and water should be enough to leave the plates clean for the next user. Use some water on the hot plate to dislodge stubborn stains. You can also bring a barbecue scraper if you anticipate a bigger mess! Remember, all waste should also be disposed of in the bins provided.

Choose your perfect spot

Whether you’re keen for a pre-barbie swim, looking to entertain the kids with a playground, or just trying to find the perfect view, it’s all in the details! Here are some of our barbecue highlights.
