LOCAL CHICK… LISA ROLLINGS FROM COOGEEA Shire girl at heart, Ellouise Tyrrell Strata Management director Lisa Rollings has called Coogee home for the past 15 years. She shares her local favourites with The Beast…
How long have you lived here? I moved to Coogee after living overseas and have been here for 15 years. I grew up in the Shire.
What’s your favourite beach? Living a stone’s throw away from Coogee Beach, I love the bay feeling. The ladies’ pool is exceptional. It’s a great place to chill out.
What’s your favourite eatery? There are so many great places that have sprung up over the years. Sugarcane, Jack Horner, X74, and Coogee Pavilion are all great restaurants and we are lucky to have them within walking distance.
Where do you like to have a drink? I love Coogee Pavilion, where you can enjoy a coffee in the morning or a cider in the evening with a great view.
Best thing about the Eastern Suburbs? The location to everything you need is within easy reach. Having big open spaces like Centennial Park and the coastal walk makes inner city living that much more enjoyable.
Worst thing about the Eastern Suburbs? People dumping their household items on the street. Council has a free collection service available!
Do you have a favourite sporting team? I am not a big sports fan. That said, I will watch the AFL grand final if the Sydney Swans make it.
What music are you into at the moment? I love a variety of tunes, from DJ Alex Taylor and RUFUS to the top pop charts.
Who is your favourite person? My business partner Ellouise. She is the sister I never had.
What do you get up to on the weekends? Weekends are way too short, but I love spending time with family and friends, and the great activities that Sydney has on offer.
What do you do for work? I am a director at Ellouise Tyrrell Strata Management.
What’s your favourite thing about work? The work/lifestyle balance and assisting people with their strata building needs.
Do you have a favourite quote? “It is not the world that needs peace; it is people. When people in the world are at peace within, the world will be at peace ” – Prem Rawat.
