Cooroy Local Area

Cooroy’s name came from Cooroy Mountain, which was originally called Coorooey, from the Aboriginal word for possum, kurui.

The area was explored by timber-cutters as early as 1863. Cooroy railway station was opened in 1891 and in the same year a post office opened. A
town survey was conducted in 1907. Cooroy’s main industry developed from timber, having two operating sawmills, into dairying and fruit growing. In
1915, a butter factory opened.

The town was bisected by the Bruce Highway until a bypass was built.
