Welcome to Koorda, in the heart of Western Australia's great Wheatbelt! The Shire of Koorda forms a part of the north-eastern section of the Central Agricultural Division. Its population of 596 consists of mostly farming community dedicated to wheat, coarse grains and sheep.

There are numerous scenic areas to stop at, most with public barbecue facilities. Mollerin Rock, Newcarlbeon and Badgerin Rock are popular spots to enjoy the surroundings and perhaps catch some of the local inhabitants - kangaroo, echidna, and dozens of bird varieties.

In October 1836 the Surveyor General, John Septimus Roe, led an expedition to the east of the Avon Valley, in a search for pastoral land. Water was found only in the rock and gnamma holes and the soaks at granite hills. Roe contacted few natives, and gave few aboriginal names.
