DESCRIPTION

 

This tiny town is located on the Great Eastern Highway 22km west of Southern Cross.

 

There is a general store and a hotel but not much else in the way of tourist attractions.

 

HISTORY

 

Yet another beneficiary of the Northam to Southern Cross railway, Moorine Rock started its life as a humble station on the line.

 

W.M. Parker found gold in a nearby range in 1888 and the station was originally called Parkers Road. The townsite was surveyed in 1924 and was gazetted in 1925. The local member of Parliament complained that the name was causing confusion with nearby Parker Range and so in 1926 it was changed to Moorine Rock after a formation close to the town.

 

Moorine is said to be the Aboriginal word for female dingo.

 

The hotel was built in 1931 and has also been used as a boarding house and a nunnery.
