  • Epigraph: The surprising thing about Corrigin is that the town's most unusual and interesting attraction seems to be passed over by the Tourist Information Office. About three or four kilometres out of town on the road to Quairading is a dog cemetery where loving owners have gone to the expense of having quite elaborate headstones placed over the remains of their faithful four legged companions. Thus very human looking gravestones are dedicated to 'Dusty', 'Rover' and 'Spot'. To find such a strange place outside an unassuming little wheatbelt town like Corrigin is both fascinating and bizarre. Is this the resting place of the local sheep dogs, or is it restricted to pampered domestic pets? - Sydney Morning Herald Travel
