The tourist information shelter at Penong tells us of its establishment in 1892. Penong means Rocky Waterhole where the first house sold in the mid 1890’s for 2 pounds 15 shillings! It is also the home of Gypsum. 90% of the plasterboard used in Australian homes comes from the Lake McDonnell mine just south of Penong. It also has a surfboard shop! There is the history lesson for today!
Not much else to talk of yet as we are really concentrating on getting to WA before stopping for too long.
Did I mention the weather ……… perfect!
