Cocklebiddy is a suburb of South East & Central,
Western Australia and is about 965 kms east of
WA's capital city of Perth.
Cocklebiddy is a roadhouse with accommodation,
a caravan park, a restaurant and service station
serving the needs of travellers crossing the
Nullarbor Plain. Cocklebiddy has very little rainfall
and no reliable sources of water. Consequently,
although it has huge underground lakes, it relies
on saline waters and a desalination plant. The main
attractions in the area are the Eyre Bird
Observatory, which offers regular courses on
birdwatching and is run by Birdlife Australia, and
the Cocklebiddy Caves which are considered the
longest caves on the planet.
