This traditional country town with its prize winning streetscaping and community artwork is worth a visit with its urban village like atmosphere. Cooroy started as a camp for timber workers in 1863. The railway came to Cooroy in 1891 and soon after the main street started to develop.
The town relied on the sawmills and local dairies and was a prosperous town until the collapse of the dairy and fruit growing industries in the 1970s. The Noosa Information Centre has a collection of alpaca products. Distance from Brisbane (State Capital): 140 Kilometres.
