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.

Bally Wire is a fantastic place for the

kids to release some energy.  They

got to feed the animals and we all

had a great game of Putt Putt golf.  A 

good stopover point on the Yorkes

nice meals too.
