Coulta is a small country community, situated at the foot of Marble Range, in picturesque sheep and cereal farming country.
A short drive takes you to the beautiful, tranquil beaches for surf fishing, diving, board surfing or sunbathing. These beaches are Coles, Greenly and Convention Beach, the latter being famous for its salmon fishing. A large salt lake, Lake Greenly can be seen at the foot of Mount Greenly – an area frequented by hang-gliding enthusiasts. Some 35 kilometres north of Coulta is a stretch of highway between Mount Hope and Sheringa. It runs tantalisingly close to some of the most spectacular coastline to be found on Eyre Peninsula.
Cummings Monument Lookout, 60 kilometres south of Elliston, affords an uninterrupted view from Point Drummond in the south to the rugged cliffs of Sheringa in the north. It is also home to a family of osprey, which nest on a craggy pinnacle adjacent to the lookout. The lookout is serviced by a short, well-formed access road and carpark, with plenty of room for caravans. It is well worth a stop for tourists travelling the Flinders Highway between Port Lincoln and Ceduna.
