Koroit A Historical Old Town

With strong links to Indigenous and Irish cultures two of it's claims to renown
Koroit in south west Victoria is a historical old Town
And for it's hospitable people it is known far and wide
Far beyond the Moyne Shire and the south west countryside
Their footballers and netballers between them have won many a Premiership Flag
Any club that does beat them have earned their right to brag
Always joyous in victory and gracious in defeat
In south western Victoria the young women and men of Koroit always the hardest to beat
Nearby Tower Hill has strong links to a south west Victoria's Indigenous Race
To the descendants of the Budj Bim a sacred place
In Koroit in Victoria where the cultures do meet
A visitor there not made to feel like a stranger as she or he walks on the street
Most people you meet there always smile and say good day
To be friendly to strangers is the Koroit way.
