Cobdogla is a small irrigation settlement about five kilometres west of Barmera in the Riverland.

It’s home to the Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum, originally the pumping station for the district’s vineyards and horticultural crops. Here, you can see pumping equipment and all manner of the machinery used in the development of the district’s irrigation system, including the mighty Humphrey Pumps – the only remaining examples in the world.

One of these pumps is demonstrated during the four main open days during each year, often attracting visitors from the United Kingdom where the pumps were designed and built.

Cobdogla offers a caravan park, licensed club, general store and fuel is available.

It has an historic pumping station that formerly supplied the Barmera and Cobdogla area and was first settled as a pastoral base in 1851.
