Early in September, Koorda hosts its annual Agricultural Show, which brings together past and present Koorda residents, along with a large number of visitors. The show features many agricultural events and displays, including the 'corn dollies', the emblem of the shire. Visit the old hospital, now the town museum, for historical displays of farm machinery and hospital equipment.
Cottage crafts are on display at the local centre situated in Railway Street. Koorda is the regional office for Cooperative Bulk Handling's cereal grain transport system for the surrounding area. A tour of the modern complex will give an appreciation of the processes involved in the receiving and handling of the vast quantity of grain grown here.
One of only three left in in Western Australia, the Koorda Drive In has recently been given a ‘retro’ renovation in the cafe area, and a brand new digital system has been installed to enhance the picture quality. With two new release movies shown every screening, the Koorda Drive In is truly a unique and memorable experience.
