Due to water and wind erosion over the years, Lake Koorkoordine is home to intriguing miniature caves, cliffs and bays which you can explore. The Lake is a fantastic destination for photographers.

North of the lake, located on Bullfinch Road, you will find a quarry site that was intended for use by a proposed air training school. The school never eventuated, however $60,000 worth of engine bed foundations in the middle of the wheat field adjacent to Southern Cross are the remaining proof.
