Located on the northern rim of Tower Hill State Game Reserve, Koroit derives its name from the Koroitch Gundidj people, one of the original occupiers of the area.
The town and district was characterised by a strong catholic Irish contingent, close settlement and intensive agricultural activity in the rich volcanic soil surrounding the town. Koroit still maintains its fascinating Irish charm as can be seen by a short walk or cycle along the main street and into the side streets.
