The Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre is an innovative heritage project that tells the unique stories of how Bunbury was developed, and the colourful characters who made it the vibrant port city that it is today. Shipwrecks, the struggles of early settlers, convicts, the Bunbury port, and the people of the town have all contributed to this city’s rich history.
The museum cares for a new collection focused on the history of the Bunbury area, and displays the highlights of that story with objects, interactive displays and events designed for all ages and imaginations.
Also part of the museum team is the Local Studies Collection department, established about 30 years ago to safeguard Bunbury’s documentary history, with an emphasis on council records.
The new Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre meets the needs and interests of the Bunbury community, visitors to the city, and school students through its education programs, developed in line with the Western Australian Curriculum.
Open Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm.
The Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre is located at 1 Arthur Street, Bunbury.
