Cooroy is a town in Queensland, Australia, located in the northern Sunshine Coast hinterland about 22km west of Noosa Heads. It is within the local government area of the Shire of Noosa (between 2008 and 2013 it was within Sunshine Coast Region). It is nicknamed "Heart of the Hinterland".HistoryCooroy'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.

In 1915, a butter factory opened.The town was bisected by the Bruce Highway until a bypass was built.Heritage listingsCooroy has a number of heritage-listed sites, including: Lower Mill Road: Cooroy Lower Mill Site Kiln 14 Myall Street: Cooroy railway stationAmenitiesCooroy has one hotel, a golf club, a bowls club, the RSL club and sub branch, a selection of cafes and restaurants, unique retail outlets and a range of accommodation options.
