    The old one was renovated into its prior format in 1995-ish.

    Before that the bands were up the front, the bar was where the video games went and the kitchen was where the DJ booth was.

    Large parts of the Crowded House film clip for 'Now we're getting somewhere' filmed at Kooroora 20/21 August 1986, and amongst the earliest gigs under the new band name.

    We had our orange lifts Ziggy Zaggy there with Hans in 81, a sea of beer vomit covered the floor of the toilets.

    Unfortunately some dodgy 80's artistic blurring makes it all unrecognisable :(

    The pointy end, fully reclined
    Makes me want to go for a spin on Village Run.

    Haven't skied there since they removed the lift 15 odd years ago.
