Home of the famous Coffin Bay Oyster.
Renowned for its world-famous oysters and home to one of the most stunning estuaries in Australia, Coffin Bay is a popular holiday spot - its annual population swelling from 500 to 3000-plus every summer. The pristine, calm waters surrounding Coffin Bay are perfect for sailing, swimming, water-skiing and skin diving while its meandering waterways, bays, channels and inlets are ideal for rock, surf, jetty and boat fishing.
On-shore there is Coffin Bay National Park to explore, walking trails, a golf course complete with resident kangaroos, lawn bowls and internet facilities at the post office. Named after Sir Isaac Coffin, a friend of explorer Matthew Flinders, Coffin Bay has plenty of accommodation options, including camping in the National Park. Coffin Bay has an active commercial wharf in the centre of town allowing visitors to watch the fishing boats unload their daily catch.
Renowned for its recreational fishing. Fishing Charter trips may be arranged to the offshore game fishing areas. Boat owners are catered for by four concrete launching ramps which are floodlit at night and protected by groynes for easier boat handling. The Yacht Club jetty mooring area is popular with trailer-sailers.
