Bonnie Rock Townsite is a historic location, being the ghost town of Bonnie Rock. It must be one of the shortest lived towns in Australia, with people living here for only about a decade from the 1930s to the 1940s. The school only operated for 5 years.
The Hall still stands and is still used for social events in the district.

Beside the hall is a level gravel parking area which is big enough to turn a caravan. There are flushing toilets with hand basins and a children's playground.

Along the road are signs showing the names of the people who owned the blocks of land and the type of business that each had on them. There was a butcher shop, a boarding house and various other shops. All pretty rough and ready, one can imagine.
