Coorabie is a settlement in South Australia.[9] It is outside of district council boundaries, and therefore managed by the Outback Communities Authority. It is located in the west of South Australia, and includes the Wahgunyah Conservation Park. The Eyre Highway passes through the locality, although the Coorabie settlement is south of the highway.

Construction of helicopter landing facilities began in 2015, to serve the BP/Statoil oil exploration project in the Great Australian Bight.[10]
