Coorow is a three hour drive north of Perth and is located between Carnamah and Moora in Western Australia’s Midlands wheatbelt area.
Settlers first arrived in Coorow in the 1860s and the townsite was established in 1893.
The name Coorow is derived from the Aboriginal name of a nearby spring. The word "Curro" is thought to be the Aboriginal word for a variety of Portulacca, however another theory suggests it may mean "many mists".
During winter and in early summer, Coorow is popular with wildflower enthusiasts who come to view the spectacular carpet of colours that flood the area.
To continue the development of a vibrant rural community, purchasers are required to build their home within 36 months from settlement.
