Lake Koorkoordine

Lake Koorkoordine

Lake Koorkoordine is named after the Aboriginal words Koorkoor, meaning ’meat’ and dine, meaning ‘place of’.

Due to water and wind erosion over the years, Lake Koorkoordine is home to intriguing miniature caves, cliffs and bays which you can explore. The Lake is a fantastic destination for photographers.

North of the lake, located on Bullfinch Road, you will find a quarry site that was intended for use by a proposed air training school. The school never eventuated, however $60,000 worth of engine bed foundations in the middle of the wheat field adjacent to Southern Cross are the remaining proof.

Address: Turkey Hill Road, Southern Cross, 6426
