Travelling north from Cororooke brings you to Warrion the last stop for services or a drink for many kilometres until you reach the Hamilton Highway at Cressy or Lismore. The local shop, hotel and garage service the local farming communities day to day needs. This region has had a wide variety of crop industries over the years. The flax factory was located at Cororooke to process local crop and what was the Wattie Pict factory to the south of Warrion where locally grown peas and other produce was processed.
Rocky outcrops dot the landscape.
Warrion Hotel is the only watering hole for miles. Onions are grown at several places in the region but dairy farming is still the main source of income. In dryer conditions to the north of the Princess Highway bore water is used for irrigation on most properties. Without irrigation most of the land would be to dry for cropping or for grazing dairy cattle but underground rivers ensure water is plentiful. As the land becomes dryer further north through Leslie Manor, Cressy and Lismore grain & sheep farming are the mainstay farming activities. Readymix operate a quarry in the area near Ondit to crush rock for their manufactured concrete products and to sell to customers in many sizes to suit different purposes.
