Koorawatha is an Aboriginal word for “pine trees”
The Koorawatha Hotel, also known as the Koorawatha Railway Hotel, is between Cowra and Young, New South Wales. Koorawatha’s only businesses are the hotel and a cafe. The 2006 census numbers the population at 258 persons. The town is located near the Illunie Range and Koorawatha Nature Reserve which is popular with birdwatchers.
The hotel has a stuffed wombat on the main refrigerator. It had been run over one night by a local man who was so upset by the accident he had it
suitably preserved and presented it to the hotel.
A gunbattle took place in Koorwatha on 20 May, 1864, between notorious bushranger, Ben Hall and his gang, and the police when the bushrangers attempted to hold up the Bang Bang hotel (now demolished). Hall and his gang were forced to retreat. Constable Scott took aim at Hall as he rode away and fired, knocking Hall’s hat off his head.
