Information

From Landgate - Coolimba is a coastal fishing town, located on the coast west of Eneabba. The townsite was gazetted in 1969, and the name is Aboriginal, said to mean "place by the water". This place is also sometimes referred to as "Desperate Bay".

Coolimba is one of those places impacted on by the State's squatters strategy. Although a gazetted townsite (Shire of Carnamah) Coolimba's shacks were just progressively thrown up around a tracks network and, following the advent of the 'strategy' all recreatiional shacks have now been removed, leaving the place looking a bit forlorn. Those shacks remaining all belong to professional fishers.

There is a reasonable, though rocky, 4WD track heading south for a kay or so to a great view from a low headland.
