Only a couple of weeks until the conference kicks off. Over 400 registered so far - don’t miss out on the biggest event in the Museums and Interpretation calendars this year!
In additional to a cracking display of machinery Kojonup is also the home of award winning Kodja Place home to the visitor centre, the red cockatoo cafe and a brilliant display about the area and the role the local Aboriginal families played in developing the the town. The heritage rose garden also has a cracking interpretation story to tell! Don’t miss it!
Located in the old railway station master’s house, each room of the Museum is designed as it may have been in the early years and includes other items and family histories from the era.
Gnowangerup Historic Centre
The Gnowangerup Historic Centre houses a collection of written history and items of historical and heritage value to Gnowangerup town and shire.
The Ongerup-Needilup Museum is a local natural history museum, where visitors can view historical “everyday” household and farming equipment displays as well as natural fauna.
Old Farm Strawberry Hill
The Old Farm, Strawberry Hill was considered old more than 100 years ago. It was given the name “The Old Farm” in recognition of being the oldest farm in Western Australia, established even before the Swan River Colony.
A Government Farm was created at Strawberry Hill in 1827. In 1833, Sir Richard Spencer was appointed Government Resident at Albany and then purchased the Farm. By 1836 the well established gardens were producing blood oranges, grapes, raspberries, gooseberries, asparagus, figs and almonds.
After an ongoing cycle of neglect and restoration the property was purchased by the Government in 1956 as a historic monument. Transferred to the National Trust in 1964, the house and garden have been restored to appropriately reflect their significance.
Albany has a proud military history and was one of the last places seen by many of the brave Anzacs who went off to fight in WWI. The fort, Mount Clarence and the Anzac Peace Park all celebrate this history as well as giving the visitor excellent views over the stunning King George Sound.
The site of the last whaling station in Australia (closed in the 1970’s) brings together the past with the present day with fully immersive state of the art technology recreating the dramatic sounds and images of the old whaling station. See the spectacular skeleton exhibit boasting the state’s largest Pygmy Blue whale skeleton, create your own adventure with the freedom to explore an actual whaling ship, and stand on the actual flensing deck and watch as actual cookers spin into action.
