Information

A farming town, Bruce Rock produces crops of wheat, barley, lupin and peas. Sheep, pigs and goats are also farmed in the area.
Originally known as Nunagin or Noonegin, the name of the town led to confusion between other towns such as Narrogin and Nungarin. The name was changed to Bruce Rock after the large granite feature located close to the town. The townsite was gazetted in 1913. The rock was named after sandalwood cutter, John Rufus Bruce, who worked in the area in 1879

Check out the comprehensive collection of memorabilia at the Bruce Rock Museum.
See stunning views of the town and surrounding farmland from the Old Railway Dam and granite outcrop.
Catch one of the many events and concerts held throughout the year at the Federation Amphitheatre and Sculpture Park.
