Coonamia is a locality to the east of Port Pirie in the Mid North region of South Australia. It is on the plains between Port Pirie and the Southern Flinders Ranges.
The Coonamia railway station is the Port Pirie station used by trains between Adelaide or Sydney and Perth or Darwin. Coonamia is crossed from west to east by both the Adelaide-Port Augusta railway line and Warnertown Road which connects Port Pirie to the Augusta Highway and thence to Adelaide. The railway was originally built in 1875 to service the port at Port Pirie.
Coonamia is named for the railway station, which is reputed to have been named in 1929 for an Aboriginal word for cold.
