Cooran is a farming area with its centre in the village not far from the Bruce Highway. The region has number of picturesque waterways including Pinbarren Creek and Six Mile Creek flowing from east to west through the northern part of the locality and Coles Creek from east to west to the south – these creeks all flow to the Mary River. The North Coast railway line passes through the town which has its own railway station in the centre of the town. Nearby Mount Cooran dominates the landscape with its distinctive peak.
From the Kabi language, the name Cooran (guran or kuran, meaning tall in Kabi), may refer to Mount Cooran or possibly to the tall Moreton Bay Ash trees found in the area.
Cooran Post Office opened on 17 June 1889 and what is now Cooran State School (1909) originally opened in 1890 as the Cooran Provisional School. Banana growing was the most important industry in the 1920s and 30s and for a period after World War II pineapple farms were established in the area.
