The History of Cooroibah
Cooroibah was first inhabited as early as 40, 000 years ago by the native Kabi tribe. These nomadic indigenous Australians wandered the area between the mouth of the Noosa River and the Redcliffe area north of Brisbane. The name Cooroibah means ‘place of possums’ in the original language of the area, no doubt given because of the wonderful wildlife which still abounds today. In the late 1860’s, Cooroibah was settled by white convicts at the same time as the rest of the Noosa region. There was much interest in the area around the time of nearby Gympie’s Gold Rush period.
The properties in Cooroibah are often situated on acreage, offering their owners the space to spread out and enjoy a peaceful, private escape within a natural setting. The abundance of wildlife means the area is well-suited to nature-lovers, families and retirees. If you’re a horse-lover, veggie-enthusiast or needing a sanctuary from city-life, then Cooroibah could be the place for you. Even the ‘smaller’ blocks in Cooroibah are massive. For this reason the allotments provide a great option for renovating or building.
