Starfish Hill Wind Farm is a wind power station spread over two hills near Cape Jervis, South Australia. It has 23 wind turbines, eight on Starfish Hill itself and 15 on Salt Creek Hill, with a combined generating capacity of 34.5 MW of electricity.

Starfish Hill Wind Farm was commissioned in September 2003, making it the first major wind farm in the state.[1]

Starfish Hill Wind Farm was developed by Starfish Hill Wind Farm Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tarong Energy at a cost of A$65 million. RATCH Australia (at that time Transfield Services) acquired the wind farm in December 2007.[2]
