Come on a journey of discovery at the Museum of the Great Southern and share in the beauty and natural abundance of our Kinjarling – 'place of rain' and home of the Menang people.

Programs let you:

  • Meet the local wildlife – different species of frogs, King’s Skinks and varied bird life within our grounds
  • See the site where Menang people fished and cooked and where Western Australia was first proclaimed
  • Learn about our rich maritime history, threatened species, traditional Menang life and the amazing marine habitats of our southern seas
