Coorow is a three hour drive north of Perth and is located between Carnamah and Moora in Western Australia’s Midlands wheatbelt area.
During winter and early summer, Coorow is popular with wildflower enthusiasts who come to view the spectacular carpet of colours.
Settlers first arrived in Coorow in the 1860s and the townsite was gazetted 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".
