Coobowie is fast becoming a popular tourist destination. It's just one of many Yorke Peninsula towns offering a fantastic coastal getaway. Be sure to book your accommodation early during the summer season!

Did you know: In 1838 because the area around the bay was so beautiful, the explorers assumed there must be fresh water. After travelling 40 kilometres inland and finding none, they named Coobowie, 'Deception Bay'.

Edithburgh Tidal Pool


The Edithburgh Tidal Pool provides a safe and unique place to swim.

Originally the tidal pool was on the southern side of the jetty to cater for the ladies as mixed bathing was not permitted in the 1880s. As time went by they decided to build another pool for men. The jetty was a very busy port so very often no one was able to swim in the area around it, so the pool provided a safe alternative. The mens pool remains and continues to provide this today.

The pool has undergone a number of facelifts over the years. Swimming lessons are offered via the Vacswim program, contact them for details.
