The Gymea Bay Baths are named after the native plant the Gymea Lily, a tall wine-colored stemmed fauna, and the nearby Bay that also got its name from the local fauna.
Gymea is an ever-growing suburb of Australia that is constantly balancing preservation of the local Bushland but advancing the culture in the area with new homes and businesses. Here are plenty of great places to check out if you’re in the area.
If you’re interested in a bite to eat, these local hotspots are sure to make your mouth water.
If you travel to the area by train, the Gymea Train Station is nestled beside the Gymea Shopping Village. As soon as you disembark, you can dive right into one of the local restaurants off of South street along Gymea Bay Road for a filling meal. Caruso’s Italian, for example, boasts an authentic experience with modern menu items like vegan-friendly pies.
Sushi Dragon, also located in the same shopping village, is highly rated with Vegan sushi roll options and polite staff. Further, towards Gymea Bay, you can find How Brewed on Coonong Road or Rock Paper Coffee on Casuarina Road just off Gymea Bay Road for a casual coffee shop experience. Just a few of the locations giving the area it’s laid back cafe vibe.
That same plaza on Casuarina Road is home to Gymea Pizza and the Big Mexican Rancho, which serves various authentic Mexican dishes.
Of course, once you’ve filled your stomach, you’ll want to get your fill of these other great attractions.
Gymea Bay Baths
There’s a lot of family fun to be had in Gymea Bay Baths. The Gymea Bay swimming Baths are located near Ellesmere Road and Gymea Bay Road and are a community staple. These baths have existed for over 40 years. They are primarily used for watersports such as water skiing and wakeboarding, and various water sporting events.
For those looking for more fun on terra ferma, you can head out to Gray’s Point just South of Gymea Bay. It’s a quiet area easily reached via North West Arm Road through the Gymea Bay area, where you can fish or read in peace.
Old School Park
For more active visitors, there are also locations like Old School Park. A recent addition to the Gymea Bay area, this park is outfitted with jungle gyms, bike trails, and designated picnicking areas.
It also connects with Coonong Creek Bushland Reserve via the walking/biking trails. Coonong Creek is a preserved Bushland location with beautiful scenery maintained by the local conservation group of Sutherland Shire.
Gymea Bay Baths and the surrounding area offer a very relaxing and fun atmosphere. You can sip coffee in the center of town or dive into the baths for hours of fun with the family and friends.
While Gymea maintains its original aesthetic, it is an ever-developing suburb with unique new attractions and locations popping up all the time. The Gymea Bay area is one worth revisiting year after year.
