Bassendean Railway Museum

The Railway Museum at Bassendean, Perth Western Australia is Western Australia's premier museum devoted to railway history.

  • Open Days/times:Sunday 1pm to 5pm | Wednesday 1pm to 4pm
  • Museums:Local History
  • Historical Sites:Trains

Details

  • Open Days:Wednesday,Sunday

Description

The collection is highly significant as it is the only such one in Western Australia that aims to tell the story of all railways across the state. Other collections focus on one aspect or a region.

The majority of the collection is from the Western Australian Government Railways. There are also items representative of the extensive timber lines and gold mines that operated in the state as well as the private lines such as the Midland Railway Company.

The collection spans the whole spectrum of railway history. From Katie which was placed in service in 1881 when the Fremantle to Guildford Railway was built through to more modern diesel locomotives. Therefore whether you are interested is the heavy freight V class steam locomotives or the tiny 20 inch gauge mine locomotive 'Freudie' there is something to interest you at the museum. Four different railway gauges are exhibited.
Special events and visiting stalls are a feature of the annual "Railfest" day, usually in October - see the museum calendar.

Various passenger carriages and freight wagons that formed an integral part of the railway scene can also be appreciated. A number of these date back to the 19th century. The 1947 "Australind" buffet car is loved by children when hired for their own private birthday party.

The exhibition building houses an extensive collection of railway artefacts and photographs telling the story of railways in Western Australia.

Dylan Fox Photography

  • Open Days/times:BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

I’m Dylan Fox, an award-winning Australian Landscape Photographer based out of Perth, Western Australia. As a West Australian Landscape Photographer, I take great pride in showcasing what this stunning part of the world has to offer. Traveling within Australia and overseas however provides new opportunities and to bring those experiences back with me. My online gallery consists of my finest landscape photography from Australia and the United States of America. This online gallery displays my award-winning collection and offers my prints for sale in a variety of sizes sure to suit your need. I supply artwork to homes and commercial spaces in Perth, Australia and abroad.

I have always loved to have a camera in my hands for as long as I can remember. On family trips I can recall racing through rolls of film on my mum’s Canon SLR, capturing nothing in particular and using up excessive amounts of film in the process. Having always loved to travel and witness natures finest moments, it was only a matter of time before I started capturing those moments in the form of photographs. It was on a year 12 photography camp where we were assigned the task of capturing a few landscape images for our portfolios. Ever since that first sunrise shoot on Rottnest Island I have been hooked. Needless to say I spent the rest of that trip cycling the Island in search of my next Landscape photograph.

Perth has provided me with an amazing coastline in which to learn and develop my skills as a photographer. The beaches along the West Australian coast have played a major part in my life and a significant role in my photographic career.

My eyes are now forever watching the sky’s and keeping an eye on local weather maps in hope of capturing something special. The satisfaction of capturing an amazing location under the perfect light is a feeling I strive for constantly. When all the elements come together it makes for a moment in time that I may never forget. Capturing those moments allows me to show people what they may have otherwise have missed.

My aim is always to capture photographs that provoke emotional connections from those that view them. The photograph must tell a story and truly captivate those that see it.

Mt Flora Regional Museum

Visit Mt Flora Regional Museum and discover the rich and diverse history of the City of Stirling. Explore the history through photographs, displays, artefacts and stories. It is worth a visit to Mount Flora Regional Museum for the view alone!

  • Museums:Local History

Details

  • Open Days:Wednesday

Description

Attractions
The exhibits at the Mt Flora Regional Museum offer a look into region’s past through photographs and artefacts.

Permanent exhibitions include:
Shipwrecks
Whaling
Early days of school.
The mezzanine floor focuses on social history, where visitors can look through ‘windows in the past’ and see what typical rooms were like in the early days. For example, one exhibit is a 1940s kitchen showing utensils at the time, such as a wood stove, and a dining room set for a family dinner.

Go up the stairs to the panoramic lookout and you get one of the best views in the northern suburbs. In 1942 the Defence Forces also utilised the building as an observation post, and you can still see the fantastic view today.

A mural by Anne-Maree Pelusey is painted on the walls of the lookout and features about 300 local fish.

Outside the museum, there is a large grassy park with a children’s playground and picnic area.


About the museum
The Mt Flora Regional Museum is housed in a 1936 water tank originally built for North Beach residents. After being phased out of service in the 1970s, the City of Stirling and the North Suburban Historical Society developed the facility into a museum.

WA Police Historical Society Museum

The Western Australia Police Historical Society (Inc) was established by serving Police Officers in 1987. With support from Commissioner Brian Bull, our Collection was housed on Police premises until Mr Bull’s retirement in 1994.

  • Museums:Local History,Natural History
  • Open Days/times:Mon - Fri 10AM - 4PM

  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday

Description

The Western Australia Police Historical Society (Inc) was established by serving Police Officers in 1987. With support from Commissioner Brian Bull, our Collection was housed on Police premises until Mr Bull’s retirement in 1994.

His successor did not support the Society so we were forced to seek other storage facilities and retired Officers were required to fill the void.  The WA Police Union subsequently gave us an office and facilities for storage, in order that we could continue.

In November 2006 we were able to move into the premises at 57 Lincoln Street, Highgate Commissioner O’Callaghan leased the old Highgate Hill Police Station built 1897 and the Police quarters built 1906 (pictured above) to the Society with a 10 year renewable term. The Society has since taken residence in Scarborough, at 174 Scarborough Beach Road. 

In addition we secured a lease with the Water Corporation on their redundant sewage (tower) building, which is adjacent, for a lecture, meeting and work room. All these buildings are Heritage listed.

We established offices and a Museum in the Police quarters and restored the interior of the Police Station and cells to appear as if the Station is still in operation. Our main purpose is to preserve Police history, whether it be with aretfacts, photographs or documents, together with the personal histories of  former Officers. Organised group tours are conducted by appointment.

A quarterly Newsletter consisting of 8 to 12 pages titled The  Peelers Gazette, is produced. This has  a circulation of  170 copies and is produced in hard copy. It covers the activities of the Society as well as a feature article on some aspect of WA Police history.

The Society currently has 103 members, with a nomination fee set at $10.00  plus $10.00 annually. Monthly Meetings take place at 10am, on the first Tuesday of the month, with the exception of November when it is on the 2nd Tuesday. In January we are in recess.

Bring the kids and take them on a journey of exploration and education. Whilst my little one was too young to appreciate many of the antiquities on show; this is a great place to take little people and show them 'how we used to live'. There are numerous exhibits, many with audio visual and interactive displays that deepen the learning opportunities available. The changing technology display would certainly be a great eye opener for children of today who might enjoy finding out how Wanneroo locals existed before electricity. There are also some fabulous rural artefacts, and a rare 'buka' on show; believed to be the only kangaroo skin cloak on display outside of the Museum of WA.
