William Moir found gold specimens while prospecting in a gully flowing into the west side of Lake Dundas in July 1892.
He organised a follow up prospecting party during which he named Stennet Rock after a member of his party, well known bushman Tom Stennet. The rock is about one kilometre to the west of the Coolgardie-Esperance Highway, four kilometres north of the Peak Charles Road.
Apart from its historical significance the rock offers little – it is not needed for navigation and there are better camping options within a few kilometres.
