Displays include period settings, repair workshops, posters and other memorabilia and, of course, the many historic vehicles. With over 130 painstakingly restored cars, bikes, competition, unusual and performance vehicles the Motor Museum of Western Australia is an educational delight for all school children, a must for every rev head and for many of us, a nostalgic reminder of youthful desires. The Museum's shop sells videos, model cars, post cards, books, badges, keyrings and other automobilia. Located in the heart of picturesque Whiteman Park, the Museum has ample parking, (car park No 11) delightful grassed picnic areas and barbecue facilities, is on the park's tramline and only an 18 minute drive from the centre of Perth. Some vehicles have a local historic story attached to them and others are rare examples that you will only find in a few select locations around the world.
So next time you are in Whiteman Park make the time to visit us near the main village, and if you visit Western Australia, then a trip to Whiteman Park is a worthwhile effort. There are many other attractions and activities for the family other than the Motor Museum.

Dozens of relics from WA’s agricultural past are on display at the Tractor Museum of WA. The collection includes nearly forty tractors, as well as stationary engines, vintage trucks, a display of country life artifacts and old photographs.
Of the tractors on display, the oldest is an operational 1920 Fordson; the rarest, a 1923 Bailor cultivator built in America; and one of the more unique is the HSCS crawler, built in Sweden and the only known one in Australia.
WA even had its own tractor manufacturer, Chamberlain Industries (subsequently taken over by John Deere before later closing down), and their original prototype tractor, the 40K, and the famous “Tail-end Charlie” are both on display.
A parade of restored vintage tractors from the Tractor Museum of WA chugs its way up to Revolutions Transport Museum, before returning through the Village Mall on the second Sunday of every month.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to see these marvelous relics in operation!
