Coonawarra is a small town north of Penola in South Australia. It is best known for the Coonawarra wine region named after it.

Coonawarra was a station on the Mount Gambier railway line which opened in 1887. The Limestone Coast Railway tourist trains occasionally passed in the early 2000s, but there has not been traffic on the line since then.
