Visitors can take a break from shopping and relax with a bacon and egg roll from the Sausage Sizzle or enjoy a sumptuous morning tea at the hall.  Alternatively drop into Wegner’s Rural for real coffee and a home made sausage roll or head up to the Woolshed Hotel for a pub lunch. The Nungarin Heritage and Army Museum is open every market day from 8 am to 12 pm and the amazing heritage listed Mangowine Homestead (located 14 kilometres from Nungarin) is also open from 10 am to 4 pm.
