This historical town started as a railway siding. In its heyday the town was a major trading centre with the population growing up to 250 residents and then they slowly drifted away. Now there is a town hall, railway station and a school – but on any given day, only around seven residents can be found in Cooladdi.

Nearby Quilberry Creek, 100 metres from the town, has numerous waterholes suitable for fishing, swimming, yabbying and camping.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
