Cooroy is another surprise town. Traveling from Tewantin and arriving over the crest of the hill the nothing much is apparent. A few hours later and Cooroy has cemented a truly favorable impression.
Cooroy's name came from Cooroy Mountain, which was originally called Coorooey, from the Aboriginal word for possum. The town also predates the Sunshine Coast development, and is clearly a commute location for many who work at the nearby Noosa and beyond.
The traveler hugging the coastline will pass through Cooroy. Be glad of the interruption and delight at a minimum, at one of the coffee shops.
