The Park offers a range of school resources that assist teachers in reaching their curriculum needs while making their activities fun and exciting for students. The Heritage Park features the State Timber Museum, Power Up Electricity Museum and Hamlet of settlement buildings as well as hectares of natural bushland, world class facilities and a huge intergenerational playground.

Developed within the current Western Australian Curriculum, our school resources provide packages that offer students an opportunity to learn about things such as forestry, the significance of WA’s timber resources, and the contribution of the state’s forest workers. Or explore how Manjimup community changed over time, including how advances in technology – in particular, steam and electricity – changed the nature of work and daily lives.

Our school resources are fun, interactive and easily adapted by teachers to meet their classroom goals. These packages include on-site worksheets, pre and post activity packs and an historical overview document providing a brief history of the Shire of Manjimup. The activities aren’t just focused on the historical elements of the Park but also explore the functions of the Park, the community, the bushland and more. The school resources explore most subject areas in the classroom. 

School visits can be accompanied by an engaging tour (upon request) teaching students about a by-gone era in the region. Or less curriculum focused tours about the museums and fun interactives within them.

In addition to the school resources the Park offers an excellent space for students to breakaway and explore. Or simply provide a great space for school groups passing through to take a break from car travel, stretch legs and explore a little.

The Park is wheelchair accessible, featuring a sealed path throughout all recreation and some bushland areas, multiple accessible toilets and an accessible picnic area with custom barbeques and tables.

The Park is situated in the heart of Manjimup, Western Australia, 300km south of Perth or 1.5 hours’ drive from Bunbury or Margaret River. Manjimup is part of the Southern Forests & Valleys region which offers plenty of attractions for visiting schools including the Pemberton Mountain Bike Park, Big Brook Dam, Gloucester Tree, Tree Top Walk, Greenbushes lithium mine, art & heritage trails and more! The region is also home to Pemberton and Bridgetown Camp Schools. All of these attractions are surrounded by kilometers of hiking and mountain bike trails and rivers meandering through world class national forests.
