Coobowie Hotel

Every town has local pub, but we think ours is pretty special.

Coobowie Hotel is not just a pub and restaurant, it’s more of a home away from home! Our staff and regulars would definitely agree. For a great night out, take a short walk to the corner, relax and enjoy a meal in the company of friends or family. The tasty menu is sure to keep you coming back for more.

There are also pokie machines for some extra entertainment as well as a courtesy bus so you can get home safely.

Coobowie bird hide

The Coobowie Estuary is a popular attraction for birdwatchers and nature lovers due to its remarkable variety of birdlife.

Visitors can obtain a complimentary brochure from Coobowie Caravan Park or the Coobowie Shop to assist in identifying the species. The bird hide is also conveniently located near a walking trail that offers scenic views of the surrounding scenery.
