Maroubra is a beautiful beachside suburb located among Sydney’s eastern suburbs, ten kilometres from the CBD. It is found within the local government area of the City of Randwick and is the most prominent suburb in the area managed by the council.

Maroubra’s name is derived from an Aboriginal word that translates to ‘place of thunder’.

Its history can be traced back to 1861, the year which saw the construction of the region’s first house. The arrival of other settlers towards the end of the 19th century led to the region’s development.

One of the most notable historical events at the suburb was the shipwreck of a vessel known as Hereward. The wreck was left on the beach for years, earning one of Maroubra’s streets the name Hereward Street.

Among the suburb’s attractions, perhaps none stands out as Maroubra Beach does. This famous beach stands out because it is not only easy to access; it is also a large beach whose expanse makes it a popular destination for holiday-makers. This beach is popular with surfers, thanks to the regular high swells and excellent wave conditions. Note, however, that Maroubra Beach can be dangerous for swimmers – swimmers are advised to swim during patrol hours and to do so within the flagged areas.

Away from the water adventures, the beach also features an outdoor gym, a skating park and a beautiful playground for the children. Amenities available at the beach include a changing room, outdoor showers, free BBQs as well as ample parking space.

Note that there are surf classes nearby, so take on a new hobby and learn how to surf. If you love nature walks, you will undoubtedly enjoy the Coogee to Maroubra Walk that allows you to soak in the sights and sounds of both localities.

A day well spent at Maroubra is incomplete without great food. Treat your palate to the array of cuisines for an unforgettable experience. These range from tapas at El Toro Tapas and Pizza Bar to pizza at Arthur’s and the most exquisite Japanese meals at Kokoroya Japanese Sushi Dining.
