Description

Whiteman Park is reserved for parks and recreation in the Metropolitan Region Scheme, creating a space for the community whilst also protecting a major underground drinking water source, the Gnangara Water Mound. It is also one of the largest conservation and recreation parks located in an urban environment in the world.
 
Transport heritage is a strong cultural theme at Whiteman Park. Nowhere else in Australia can you find an opportunity to experience such a wide range of transport heritage in one place.
 
Whiteman Park’s transport heritage theme dates back to the 1960s, when Lew Whiteman assembled a collection of waggons and machinery on the land he then owned around Mussel Pool.

There are now five independent community groups based at Whiteman Park; each hold significant transport heritage collections and provide rides and displays for visitors. These groups are the:

  • Motor Museum of WA,
  • Tractor Museum of WA,
  • Bus Preservation Society of WA,
  • Western Australian Light Railway Preservation Association (operating Bennett Brook Railway), and the
  • Perth Electric Tramway Society (operating the Whiteman Park Heritage Tramway).

Revolutions Transport Museum is Whiteman Park’s own integrated transport heritage display. The Museum is the storytelling hub of the Park that aims to transform the way we think about transport and how it shapes our lives and our neighbourhoods. Bringing all the modes of land transport together in one place, Revolutions tells stories in the Western Australian context and is also home to the Whiteman Collection. Make Revolutions your first stop on the Transport Heritage Trail.
