Koorda Things to Do


    The Koorda Native Flora Reserve is best visiting in spring when the wildflowers are at their best.Keep a look-out for the signposted dirt road, travel along there looking for the brown Koorda Native Flora reserve sign leading along another road . This was dirt, a little rough and narrow with dead branches lying over the track, so take care!I walked...


    If your not an Australian, then you may be wondering what the CWA building next to the Hotel is all about. The CWA (country womens association) is the largest women's organisation in Australia. Its a great organization as it tries hard to improve and make better the conditions and life of country women and children living in rural and remote...


    I am always amazed at the massive Hotels I come across in small country towns.Koorda is no exception! Located in Railway street, is this impressive double storey red brick Hotel, built in a simplified version of the Federation Free Classical style of Architecture. It has "two bars, a lounge, 20 bedrooms, the usual conveniences, managers quarters,...

  • Sheep Dogs

    Something you really need in the country is a sheep dog. These dogs pretend to be sheep dogs, which means they will chase the sheep, even in the direction you dont want them to go...They make a great companion and are fun to watch, especially when they swim in the dam.The dog on the right is my dog Jessie, the dog on the left is the farmers dog...

  • Pet lambs

    These lambs became the farmers pets after they were orphaned. They are so cute when they are young..Unfortunatley when they grow up, they kept getting inside his house and eating and destroying things, so he eventually put them with the flock, where they proved to be rather confused. They still come up to you when you move the sheep, pet lambs...

  • Graveyard of Farm Equipment

    Something a lot of farms are famous for, when an old car breaks down, or a piece of farm machinery stops working, most farmers just dump it somewhere on their property, probably because they lack the means and money to move it to a dump, many of which are 50 kms away or more.

    The Prospecter Train

    by Atre Written Feb 13, 2004

    This is a train that runs to Kalgoorlie, the goldfields region of Western Australia, hence the name. It is very cheap to ride if you have a student card, you can ride one way for about $15 and the seats are very spacious inside. You can buy some food as well, like pies and chocolate bars.

Koorda Warnings and Dangers

  • Biting Ants

    I am not making the country sound very good, but another insect you see a lot of are ants, and particularly giant red ants which can give a very very painful bite (I think you have to go to hospital if you are bitten). They also seem to hang around the house. Luckily they are not aggressive, they wont try to bite you.

  • Scorpions!

    Ok they arnt dangerous. The sting will hurt but is not poisonous. They are also very small. This one I found dead in the laundry.

  • Spiders and Bugs

    Australia is famous for its variety of spiders, insects and snakes. And at Koorda you get a lot of them (though I have never seen a snake there). The spiders can be HUGE also, though mostly they stay outside. Inside you can get large huntsman spiders, though they are harmless. If you leave a light on outside, bugs will swarm, and where there are...


Koorda Off The Beaten Path

  • Salinity

    Another environmental problem in the wheatbelt is that of spreading salinity, soil that become crusted with salt and often waterlogged, become useless for crops or stock use. It is caused by the removal of native vegetation in the past, replacing it by short rooted seasonal crops. As these crops do not use as much water in the soil as native trees,...

  • Drought2

    This is where the stubble often ends up, blown onto someones fence, resulting in the entire fence falling over. This fence was right next to the road, which was dangerous as stock could wander onto the road.

  • Drought

    The month this picture was taken, a drought had been affecting the wheatbelt area for 4 years. It caused problems such as no water for stock, dust storms, top soil erosion and wheat stubble meant for sheep food being blown off paddocks. This picture is of a paddock that has had all its stubble blown away.
