They call the town of Cooroy the ‘Heart of the Hinterland’ and the small Sunshine Coast community certainly has a lot going for it.
Situated just 15 minutes from some of the region’s best beaches and surrounded by peaceful countryside, Cooroy has an enviable position.
A century ago, Cooroy residents earned their livelihood through the timber and dairy industries. These days, the town appeals to those who want to be close to modern infrastructure while sharing the old-fashioned values of country living.
Cooroy’s quality coffee and café culture could rival flashier outlets on the coast. And bargain-seeking shoppers are drawn to the town’s five charity shops.
The community is also a hub for creative types – with strong attendance at the Friday’s potters group in the Butter Factory Arts Centre and the Cooroora Woodworkers Club at the old mill.
A couple of big events on Cooroy’s calendar are the Fusion Festival in May and Christmas in Cooroy.
