The Busselton Museum - Busselton
The Busselton Museum is housed in the town’s Old Butter Factory and is the largest museum outside of the Perth metropolitan area. Allow as much time as possible to meander through the buildings of the museum to examine the vast array of historical collections on offer.
The museum provides an insight into the history of Busselton and significant events that helped shape the town. Walk through the old group settlement home and school to get an idea of how life would have been for settlers in the 19th century. Examine the antiques, photographs and furniture from that era. Listen to old records on the gramophone and marvel at the beautiful garments worn over 100 years ago.
Visit the boiler room and creamery to see machinery used to produce butter and cheese. Time your visit during Historic Weekend in January and you can experience live butter making demonstrations and sheep shearing.
The museum is open every day of the week except for Tuesdays, and can be found in the heart of Busselton, a charming coastal town just two and a half hours south of Perth.
