When you pass a statue of a black ute and the words “Home of Dog in a Ute”, you just have to stop and take a pic.
Now the next question that was going through my mind while standing on a main road in the Wheatbelt to Corrigan was:
What on earth is a ute doing here? Is it a sculpture or does it lead to something a little more exciting?
After I had taken my fair share of photos, we made our way back to Perth. Corrigan was our next stop, and as we entered into the town I could not help but notice a ‘Roadhouse’ Sign. I LOVE roadhouses and this was a perfect time to take a ‘look-see’.
To my delight, the Roadhouse was called: THE DOG IN A UTE ROADHOUSE!
I am not sure when I was attracted to Roadhouses. I think it was the time I passed the Billabong Roadhouse near Sharks Bay when I made a point to stop at more Roadhouses!
The ‘Dog in a Ute Roadhouse’ measured up to all what a Roadhouse should be (in my opinion) and more. With a little diner, it allows for travelers to make a much needed stop, take a break and enjoy a good meal. With great friendly service means your stay here is a very pleasant one.
The ‘Dog in a Ute’ Roadhouse is opposite a wonderful park. It is more of a kids park, but it is worth your time to see it.
My stop included a purchase of a coffee and some hot chips. Coffee was good (so take the chance) and chips were crunchy. Of course, with 3 in the car meant those chips were devoured before we left town, but the coffee lasted a ‘little’ longer.
If you are travelling along State Highway 40, you will pass through Corrigan. So make sure you take the time to visit this place….I think you will be entertained.
