Cobdogla - the Land of Plenty

219km north-east of Adelaide

The tongue-twistingly named Cobdogla (an Aboriginal word meaning "land of plenty") has a fascinating history. Much of the land hereabouts - from west of Overland Corner right through into New South Wales - was taken up under a pastoral lease in 1846 by John Chambers, who raised purebred horses for the police and military.

Things to do and see in Cobdogla

The Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum houses the impressive Humphrey pump, the only working model of its kind in the world.

It's gas-driven and fed by water from Joiner's Lagoon near the site of the original Cobdogla Station Homestead. You can also take a ride on Margaret the Steam Train.
