The shop is now in the old Tape’s building. “Darren” offers a great takeaway menu, hot coffee, a postal outlet, bait and fuel. He also has general household supplies, some fresh produce, fishing tackle and the daily paper. The shop also houses the Visitor Information Outlet, with access to the regional guides, the ipad for researching local places of interest or accommodation options. You can book a camping permit online or a park pass to visit the Innes National Park.
Coobowie Hall – Hire Available
The Community Hall recently underwent some upgrades with a new stone fence and entrance, some gabions filled with native plants. There are also quite a number of statues representing the history of the area, with grazing sheep, kangaroos, emu and wombats. A great place to stop for photos with a lovely park across the road to explore the ketches, sheep trough, history trail and community notice board.
Hall hire is available through Glennis Couprie, Coobowie Progress Association Incorporated or use the contact page on this web site and the message will be forwarded.

Coobowie has a floodlit tennis court available for hire, for those who want to keep fit while on holiday.

Available at the Coobowie Shop.
Coobowie Tennis Courts
The Coobowie Caravan Park has bird brochures for those enthusiasts who wish to sit and bird watch in the nearby Bird Hide. This area also offers a great walking and cycling track, now in both directions out of the caravan park entrance.
Heading to the left, will take you to Wool Bay via Port Giles. Heading right takes you to Edithburgh and around to Sultana Point, hugging the rugged coastline while taking in the abundant bird life, glimpses of the Gulf St Vincent and the occasional dolphin frolicking. This is all part of the “Walk the Yorke”.
Ask a local about ‘things to see and do’ while enjoying your stay in Coobowie. Everyone will tell you to drop a line in and take home a feed of fish. Crabbing in the hotter months is also done in the bay. Grab a crab rake and catch yourself a feed of blue swimmers.
