Koroit’s claim as the Irish heartland of Australia is not made lightly. Koroit’s current population of about 1500-2000 people is still dominated by families of Irish decent with Irish names common throughout the township.
The town, which is located at the foot of the dormant Tower Hill volcano 10 minutes either side of Warrnambool and Port Fairy, was first settled in 1857. The rich volcanic farmland of the area drew Irish potato farmers to Koroit who had fled the famine and couldn’t believe their luck to find a piece of Ireland in their new country.
The Koroit township has close neighbours in the farming hamlets of Crossley and Killarney whose back lanes and green fields are as Irish as anything the Emerald Isle can offer. Potatoes, carrots and dairy cows still grow under and on top of the rich soil around Koroit and there is even a Blarney Stone at Killarney visitors can kiss. Koroit is located three hours from Melbourne and 10 minutes from both Warrnambool and Port Fairy.
