Open from November to April, the facilities include a BBQ area with seating, and plenty of grassed shaded areas to enjoy. Granite Outcrops Near to town there are several granite outcrops including, Mollerin Rock, Newcarlbeon, Badgerin Rock and Moningarin. These picturesque outcrops each have their own peculiar mini-environment of magnificent wildflowers including the Koorda Rose, dozens of bird varieties and native animals including kangaroos and echidnas. Most have picnic and/or barbecue facilities. Mollerin Rock and Newcarlbeon also have toilet facilities. Moningarin has the extra bonus of native gnamma holes. Museums Koorda boasts two Museums, the first taking its theme from the building’s origin as a hospital in the years before World War II. It is well worth a visit to view the interesting collection of antique medical and surgical equipment that was used in the former hospital ward. There is also a large display of early farming machinery and pioneer homestead artefacts. The Motor and Military Museum has an extensive private collection of motor and military memorabilia and where you can sit down and have a lovely cuppa.
