Coobowie is a town in the Australian state of South Australia near the south-eastern tip of Yorke Peninsula. Coobowie was proclaimed in 1875. Coobowie comes from an Aboriginal word meaning "wild fowl water".[2] At the 2011 census, Coobowie shared a population of 220 with other localities. Coobowie's current outlook is to create many new features, including a new visitor information pull in being built.[according to whom?] The cafe also has a florist.[citation needed] Coobowie is an aging community, and because of this, there is a large real estate market currently, with very low prices.[citation needed]

The protected area known as the Coobowie Aquatic Reserve is partly located within Coobowie with the remainder being located in the adjoining bay, Salt Creek Bay.[9]
