John S. Roe
(you'll see this name a lot in this book) explored the area in 1836 after
passing through the Avon Valley. He named a granite outcrop south of town
after a friend (Marshall McDermott) who was something of an adventurer and
explorer in his own right.
Marshall Rock is eight kilometres from the town of Bencubbin, it was
discovered in 1836. Take a few sausages out with you to cook on the
barbecues provided and enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding
district. The picnic area provides a lovely relaxed atmosphere with a wide
variety of native flora and fauna.
