Cora Lynn Post Office opened on 1 July 1907 and closed in 1999.[2] The Cora Lynn State School opened in January 1907 and was originally called Koo-Wee-Rup West. The School closed and became part of Pakenham Consolidated School when it opened in May 1951.[3] The now demolished, Cora Lynn Hall (known as Keast Hall) was opened in 1911. The official opening of June 13 was abandoned as the hall was flooded with three feet of water[4]
