Cooroy is home to the Butter Factory Arts Centre, which is a community centre operated by the local council which hosts exhibitions, workshops and a range of events. The venue is a converted old butter factory that was built in 1930. The butter factory closed in 1975 and was purchased by Noosa Council for use as a community centre in 1991. With new exhibitions opening every four to six weeks, the Butter Factory also regularly features solo exhibitions and curated group exhibitions.
Head down to Eumundi for the famous Eumundi Market, a premier artisan market held held twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturdays, rain hail or shine.
