Coodlie Park Farm Retreat is a unique 3000 acre farm stay and bush retreat experience ideally located on the coast of the Eyre Peninsula about 50km west of Elliston. Enjoy the peace and relaxation of kicking back around the campfire or watching the magnificent sunsets at our own private beach. By day explore the many sites of the Eyre Peninsula heading just 5 minutes up the road to the natural infinity pools of Talia Caves or 25 minutes to Lake Newland Conservation Park.  Spot abundant native wildlife while you enjoy some bush walking or head to the coast to catch a few fish to throw on the BBQ for dinner.  You can even head to Baird Bay for the incredible experience of swimming with wild sea lions and dolphins.

It is interesting the word “outback”. People ask me where it starts and where it finishes and there is no specific answer to the question. The outback – you know it when you get there and it’s a place that makes you breathe deeper, enjoy simple things and appreciate just being there.

Guided Tours

We offer a range of fully guided tours on and around our property where you are guaranteed regular encounters with native wildlife which is in abundance. The farm's private beach is rugged and beautiful and you can spend hours there taking it all in, watching beautiful sunsets or fishing with a feeling of connection to the ancients and to the land. 


Group Accommodation

Our property is the perfect venue for family reunions, school camps, regional meetings and events.  There are no neighbours within “cooee” so book out the whole venue and let us help you have an outback occasion to remember!

We are passionate about environmental sustainability and we proudly built this uniquely Australian accommodation experience on our ecological principles.  We are 100% carbon neutral and the only business in Australia that offsets its own carbon footprint internally. 


Volunteering & WwoOFing

We are also a member of Willing Workers on Organic Farms (WWOOF) and welcome international and domestic travellers, giving them the opportunity to experience life on an outback farm while they offset their own travel footprint.  





We love to share our backyard

We love nothing more than sharing “our backyard” with travellers from all over the world.  Bring your friends, family and even your dog, park up your van, pitch a tent or roll out a swag in one of the best and most unique bush camps you’ll ever visit - Camp Coodlie.  If a roof over your head is more your style then settle into one of our self-contained cottages or budget dorms with communal facilities.
