Cooran, a rural township about 3 km off the Bruce Highway, is 28 km west of Noosa Heads and 125 km north of Brisbane. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal expression describing tall trees, typically the Moreton Bay Ash, Eucalyptus tessellaris, indigenous to eastern Queensland and northern New South Wales.
