Exhibitions are revamped periodically and tell stories of the people including the traditional owners, community organisations, businesses and services in the district. The archives are extensive and enquiries are always welcome. The Museum is open by appointment, phone 0427 334 051. Entry and research fees are available on application.

Boyagin Rock

Boyagin Rock

24km south-west of Brookton is the Boyagin Rock Nature Reserve. Boyagin Rock is an imposing outcrop which has been cracked and pitted by weathering. Boyagin Rock is a place of great cultural significance to Nyoongar people, who call it Boogin. They believe that if you walk to the top of the rock without stopping you will live a long life. Boyagin provides a refuge for a variety of wildlife including numbats, goannas, echidnas and Tammar wallabies. Take a walk through the woodlands and listen for the ringing call of the grey currawong whilst you look for the native orchids and other rare plants that grow in the Reserve.
