About Randwick

Randwick is found between the beachside Sydney suburb of Coogee and NSW's famous Royal Randwick Racecourse, the country’s longest standing racing venue.

Covering more than 200 acres, in a unique setting of green trackside and cityscape views, the Royal Randwick Racecourse is a major venue hosting events the year round, such as Moet and Chandon Spring Champion Stakes Day and Schweppes Stakes Day. This compelling location also boasts more than 35 bars and restaurants.

A visit to the races is also a great opportunity to get dressed up and make a day of it, with some amazing fashions on the field.

Head to ‘the Spot’, as it is known by locals, where you will find a number of shops and cafes around Perouse and St Pauls Road. Discover rich Hungarian cakes sold by weight at Kurtosh House One, or order a slice of the Hungarian funnel cake to go with your coffee.

Just a block away from Randwick’s main thoroughfare you'll find Duke’s Lounge, a welcoming, coffee-and-tea-obsessed joint famed for its bacon and egg rolls.

Nearby restaurant Java serves up authentic Indonesian food and is a local institution still going strong after 25 years. Others restaurants not to be missed include the sophisticated Bistro Avoca and the Royal Hotel, a classic Aussie pub built in 1887.

Another must-visit is the Randwick Ritz Cinema, a restored art-deco building and classic cinema. Grab a choc-top and take in a matinee.

Centennial Parklands is also nearby, a great spot for picnics, walks or cycling. There are also two golf courses nearby, found in the beautiful grounds of the Eastlake Golf Course or the Bonnie Doon Golf Course.

Randwick is also a popular area for fishing. If you are rock fishing the wearing of life jackets is mandatory in Randwick. The coast line around Little Bay and Cape Banks contains some of the most dangerous locations in Sydney for this pastime. For more information please visit Randwick’s Rock Fishing page.
