Commentary

Cooroy is a small village located 25 kilometres inland from Noosa Heads, located in the northern Sunshine Coast hinterland about 25 kilometres west of Noosa Heads which provides services to the surrounding dairy and timber industries. Cooroy's name came from Cooroy Mountain, which was originally called Coorooey, from the Aboriginal word for possum.

 

This township is the closest rail head to the coast and is a growing rural residential area with hundreds of homesteads dotted along the rolling countryside.  Noosa Botanical Gardens can be found at Lake MacDonald, about five kilometres from Cooroy. This beautiful spot is popular with visitors and photographers.

Cooroy is home to a hospital, high school, shopping centre, hotel, RSL Club, bowls club, Cooroy Golf Club, showground, sporting fields, post office and a range of specialty shops. One of the Sunshine Coasts creative arts centres, The Butter Factory Arts Centre is also located within Cooroy.  The majority of properties in Cooroy are low-set brick homes with some newer homes being built. In recent times, properties fetching in excess of $700,000 are typically three to five bedroom homes on acreage lots or newly built homes.

 

Schools

Cooroy has two state schools in the area. Cooroy State Primary School and Noosa District State High School (Cooroy Campus). Cooroy State Primary offers years P7 while Noosa District State High School offers years 8 - 12.
