The name Cooroy, originally spelt Coorooey, is derived from the language of the traditional owners, the Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi people, and it means 'possum'. Before Europeans arrived, the land around Mt Cooroy was covered in thick rainforest and magnificent stands of tall timber.
Discover this historic Noosa hinterland township, with a rich history in the timber industry, on the Cooroy Heritage Walk. The town has maintained a number of its heritage buildings and sites including the Cooroy Butter Factory, Boden's Cooroy Store and Fenwicks Sawmill at the Lower Mill Site.
