Schools and Groups

School Excursions 

School groups are welcome at the Bunbury Museum and Heritage Centre, where our education programs are developed in line with the Western Australian Curriculum.

Please download our School Programs Guide to get the necessary information to plan your visit, including a Public Liability Certificate of Currency.

Our Education Programs include:

Whalers and Shipwrecks - Bunbury is unique because it has so many shipwrecks, with exciting stories to tell. The oldest known shipwrecks are whaling ships from North America. These stories make a lively and interactive 90 minute program for primary school children, including tales of the storms, the smell of the whalers, and the legacy they left for Bunbury.

Mapping our town - It starts with our house, and expands to include our street, suburb, or city. Mapping is an exciting way to learn about the key features of the City of Bunbury area, using a range of techniques to draw that information and some exquisite examples of maps from the museum collection.

The Museum is situated in the former Bunbury State school. Come in and experience the school of yesteryear in the classroom for a fun-filled and thought provoking look at how education changed over time.


Group tours for more than 10 people can be arranged by appointment with the Museum staff. Please let us know if there is a particular aspect of the Museum or Bunbury history which interests you.

Bookings are essential - contact us for more information and to check availability.
