Our beachside Christmas celebrations
The 18th Annual Coogee Carols will be held at Goldstein Reserve, Coogee Beach from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Sunday 22 December 2019.
Bushfire appeal fundraiser
The Coogee Carols this year will become a fundraising event for the victims of the bushfires that are currently affecting a significant part of NSW and Queensland. Randwick Mayor Danny Said says Council is donating $5,000 to the bushfire appeal along with $10,000 already pledged to the drought-affected communities of Temora and Narrabri Shire Councils.
The Salvation Army has generously volunteered to help collect donations on the night for the bushfire appeal. In addition, all proceeds from the sale of glow sticks and Santa hats will also go direct to the bushfire appeal.
Free event in a beautiful location
Hosted by Amanda Keller, this free event draws an audience from local and surrounding areas to celebrate community, family and the spirit of Christmas, in a park next to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world for a relaxed night of fun for everyone to enjoy.
Come and meet Santa and local celebrities
Locally based celebrities and personalities volunteer their time to appear at the Coogee Carols, performing traditional and contemporary carols, supported by a live band, and of course a special appearance by Santa. Large Screens are placed at Goldstein Reserve for crowd visibility and the event finishes with a fireworks display.
