Corop, Victoria, Australia: Information about Corop community for visitors and locals


Corop is located on the Midland Highway, midway between Shepparton and Bendigo. It has a population of approximately 150.

Situated in an area of great natural beauty, Corop is a sleepy hamlet nestled between the picturesque Mount Camel Range and a series of nationally significant wetlands in north central Victoria.

Corop is believed to be a derivative of the aboriginal word ‘corgarong’, which means ‘call of the brolga’. Brolgas and many other species of waterbirds have been known to breed in the Corop wetlands.

Corop is part of the Heathcote Wine Region, which has become well known for its high quality Shiraz producing vineyards, and is now successfully producing a wide range of other white and red varieties. Traditionally the area is known as a productive agricultural region including cropping, sheep and more recently tomatoes.

Lake Cooper, Greens Lake and the associated wetlands sit adjacent to Corop and offer a broad range of water sports and activities, including boating, fishing, bird-watching and camping.
