On the drive between Bencubbin and Mukinbudin is the intriguing and unusual sight of the Pergandes Sheepyards. The town of Bencubbin is just a three and a half hour drive northeast of Perth.

Located at the site are the remains of an original and prominent homestead and sheep yards that were constructed almost entirely from local granite. The sheep yards are made from large granite slabs that were drawn into position by horse sled from the nearby Wiacubbing Hill. These slabs were then placed upright out of the ground to make the fences of the sheep yards. The homestead was constructed using smaller round rocks held together by mortar.

Just a few minutes along the road you will find Marshall Rock, where you will be rewarded with a panoramic view across the Wheatbelt. This area is renowned for its extensive display of wildflowers.
