Made a lot of stops today but either nothing too exciting to photograph or I just plain forgot.
I had to visit this town…

There was something called Bruce’s Rock signposted but I couldn’t find it, all I managed was a picnic site with an historic well. Actually it wasn’t a bad little town.

There was a stop at Cunderdin for supplies, The town had an Ettamogah Pub.

…but frankly I thought the library was a better building.

I had never heard of the 1968 Meckering Earthquake but it destroyed a house.

An annoying thing about councils is their inconsistent signage I started following a series of signs stating “Earthquake Site” – these signs petered out with no sign of an earthquake, It was only while retracing my steps that I noticed a sign which said “Farm House Ruins” which I hope was the Earthquake site.
Arrived at Wongan Hills Caravan Park and booked in. Why Wongan Hills? It was 3pm (ish) I was tired of driving and this was the nearest park. The very friendly fella told me to just pick a site because there was plenty of room.

There were about four caravans in the drive through sites but no-one at all on the reverse in concrete slabs so I picked one of those near the shower block.
