Coobowie to Edithburgh Bike / Walking Trail and Bird Hide
A lovely solid bike track or walking track that meanders from the southern end of Coobowie along the
rugged coastline to Edithburgh. Plenty of bird life and natural bushland on the edge of the cliff face, offering
glimpses of the oyster farms and Trougbridge Island in the St Vincent Gulf. Coobowie has now completed a
bird hide and this is situated at the causeway offering views of birds feeding on the low water line in the
Estuary. Bird identification brochures are available at the General Store and at the Caravan Park. 600 native
trees have been planted and the area will be a beautiful natural habitat for the land and sea birds once these
plants have established. Interpretive signage has been placed in the area to assist visitors and seating to
provide rest stops to take in the magnificant views.
