Coobowie Estuary – Bird Hide
At the southern edge of Coobowie, is the causeway and bird hide, with the causeway home to many migratory birds and a key breeding area for fish stocks. Installed by the local progress committee, the bird hide offers a view of bird feeding at the low water line in the Coobowie Estuary, pick up a bird identification brochure from the Coobowie Shop or Coobowie Caravan Park and become an ornithologist for a while.
Coobowie Surrounds – “Walk the Yorke”
Walk the Yorke provides more than 500 kilometres of a continuous shared walking and cycling leisure trail. With coastal trails & town walks, Walk the Yorke showcases Yorke Peninsula’s spectacular coastline, diverse coastal communities and environments unique to ‘Yorkes’.
Now in both directions out of the caravan park entrance, Walk the Yorke trail proves to be popular. Heading to the left, will take you to Wool Bay via Port Giles and Hickeys Point. Follow the trail to the right takes you to Edithburgh and around to Sultana Point and it’s beautiful beaches, hugging the rugged coastline while taking in the abundant bird life, glimpses of the Gulf St Vincent and the occasional dolphin frolicking.
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.
