Cooran is a pretty country town, about 3 kms off the Bruce Highway near Cooroy. The town has a General store and a restaurant.

Check out the Cooran Lagoon, which is not far from the train bridge on James Street. In 1870, the lagoon was also the site of the Half Way Hotel on the original Tewantin-Gympie Coach route. Sadly, only a faded plaque marks the site now.

If you have a four- wheel drive vehicle then you could drive up to the Mothar Mountain State Forest areas where there are walking tracks and swimming holes. You might also enjoy looking at the view from the Cooran Tablelands lookout. Cooran Markets are held from 7am-1pm on the first, third and fifth Saturday of each month, in King St.
