The Museum collects across all art forms with strong holdings in painting, photography, sculpture, works on paper and moving image, as well as significant representation of works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. ”

“Welcome to Coogee Pavilion, or as the locals call it, “The Pav”. The ground floor is perfect for family get-togethers and casual dining. The menu is made for sharing; from lobster rolls, sashimi and freshly shucked oysters, to the wood-fried pizza and kids meals.”

Italian Restaurant

“With an ever evolving menu focused on modern Italian cuisine and celebrating seasonal flavours, the intimate and elegant Dining Room is the beating heart of Icebergs Dining Room and Bar. Arranged to take in the famous view of Bondi, by day or night, it makes an unforgettable backdrop to a menu inspired by Maurice Terzini’s Italian heritage and executed with the skill of head chef Monty Koludrovic. Over the years the Dining Room has been at the forefront of evolving the perception of Italian food and shaking up the way Australians eat Italian. The menu is designed to give you a seasonally changing opportunity to sample dishes that reflect the depth of Italian cuisine, created with the best produce that Australia has to offer, including sustainable seafood, artisanal produce and the occasional hint of native Australia.”

Seafood Restaurant
$$
“North Bondi Fish - There are very few venues in Sydney that are truly beachfront, but North Bondi Fish is in as close in proximity to Bondi Beach as the grassy knoll. As you walk in there’s sand on the doorstep – this isn’t decorative, it’s just what happens when you’re 12 metres away from one of the world’s most popular shorelines. Given it’s prime NoBo position, this bright and breezy seafood palace has been the spot for many long lunches since it opened back in 2013.”
