The 37 km scenic Port Fairy to Warrnambool Rail Trail passes through Koroit. Join the trail at the town’s former railway station and choose to head either towards Port Fairy or Warrnambool. Koroit is the mid-point of the trail. This is the best way to experience the surrounding countryside. The quaint town of Koroit is well worth a visit. The town has been hailed as one of Australia’s most complete examples of an early Irish settlement and has become renowned for its annual Koroit Irish Festival, which is held in April each year, and attracts thousands of visitors to the town. Step back in time as you take in the town’s stunning historic buildings and enjoy the sprawling botanic gardens, designed by William Guilfoyle.
