Meckering

Meckering is 132 kilometres or one and a half hours’ drive east of Perth on Great Eastern Highway.

The township of Meckering is best known for being completely destroyed by an earthquake on the morning of 14 October 1968. The quake measured 6.9 on the Richter scale and injured 20 people. Fortunately nobody was killed.

Much of the wreckage has been preserved and, along with information guides, is exhibited around the town as a tourist attraction. Only two kilometres north of the Meckering town site, part of the fault and a devastated farm homestead may be seen. Directions can be obtained from the service station.

You can’t miss The Big Camera Museum of Photography in Meckering. It is totally dedicated to photography and open to the public. The building is fully airconditioned and is shaped like a giant 35mm camera.

The town has budget accommodation and a caravan park.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
