Explore the unique natural, social and cultural history of the Great Southern.
The Museum of the Great Southern provides exhibitions, public programs, educational programs and information on the unique natural and social history of the region.

Refurbished in July 2010, the refitted museum overlooks picturesque Princess Royal Harbour, on the site of first European settlement in Western Australia.
