Goongarrie Cemetery

Gold was found in Goongarrie in May 1893 by Billy Frost and Jack Bennett. This once prosperous town boasted a post and telegraph office, 2 hotels and several shops which did a good trade as a stopover for the daily coach from Coolgardie to Menzies. By 1903 Goongarrie was reduced to 1 hotel and 1 store. The remnants of the old town - 3 stone railway fettlers cottages - can still be seen on the Goldfields Highway, 40 km south of Menzies.
