I have just uploaded information and photos to the Places section on this site about Trough Well in WA.

Places: Trough Well

We have camped there several times over the past 20 years or so and have always enjoyed the peace and serenity. Despite posting this info, I hope it stays peaceful and serene.

Have a look and a visit. You will enjoy it too.

cheers

Excellent work - just a little note - to ensure others think this is an excellent place it is worth doing a rating to have the system apply stars to the place. I would simply take the sentance
"We have camped there several times over the past 20 years or so and have always enjoyed the peace and serenity. Despite posting this info, I hope it stays peaceful and serene." and select a 4 or 5 star rating - that way your comment will stay with the place and the star rating will make it stand out.

Good job with the update.

Great job - I even switched to Satellite view and zoomed in and could see the road entrance and the outcrop in the sat image. We will endeavour to visit this place when we are in the are. This type of update is exactly what places was designed for.

Thanks David,

I actually got the lat/long from Google Earth. Enter it into my Garmin 660 and there we are. The Garmin's original mapping is no good for that area but at least she tells me when we are approaching the co-ords.

Cool tool for planning.

Thanks! What a great service! I clicked the link and saw the place with photos - so the first thought was "I wonder how far from home this is?" well I need not have worried with EO it had my home address pre populated and all I had to do was click for a map and directions. 3978K means I will not be there for some time so it will remain peaceful.

Thanks again for sharing.

Kind regards

3,819 km (about 1 day 21 hours) for me. Just a bit to far for a weekend.

Might have to make it a long weekend.

Cheers,

Rob, just under the title photo is a section with various links. One is "get driving directions from" and the next box should have your home town and state. Just click on GO.

Rob,

As per GB above, when you get a result from a Places search, just below where it would normally have a photo of the Place. There is a box labelled "In this Place". The last option in this box is 'Get Driving Directions'. This should have your home address already in it as per EOs records. You just need to click Go.

Alan, when you get near the co-ords start looking for the opening in the fence on the RHS. Go in and the track curves around to the left for about 100 metres then you will see the main rock and the trough.
