Cocklebiddy

438km from Norseman

Cocklebiddy lies home for two Eagles, Samantha and Bruce who live behind the roadhouse in a large aviary. Their story can be found on the side of the building explaining how they got to call Cocklebiddy roadhouse home.

Cocklebiddy was once known for the surrounding caves that invited explorers to come and experience. These caves have now been closed to public access.

Eyre Bird Observatory

The Observatory lies 50km away from Cocklebiddy, a hidden escape with a change of scenery from red dirt and endless trees to white sand and birds. Eyre functions as a working observatory and weather station and invites both day and overnight guests. Sightseeing, a small museum, and walk trails are on offer to keep guests entertained.

The road to Eyre Bird is part unsealed and part soft sand so a 4WD is essential. You however don’t need to miss out if you do not have access to such vehicle as the caretakers will arrange a pick-up point for people who arrange prior.
