See, hear and smell the machinery that played such an important part in the early life of our state.
Dozens of relics from WA’s agricultural past are on display at the Tractor Museum of WA. The collection includes nearly forty tractors, as well as stationary engines, vintage trucks, a display of country life artefacts and old photographs.
Of the tractors on display, the oldest is an operational 1920 Fordson; the rarest, a 1923 Bailor cultivator built in America; and one of the more unique is the HSCS crawler, built in Sweden and the only known one in Australia.
Western Australia even had its own tractor manufacturer, Chamberlain Industries (subsequently taken over by John Deere before later closing down). Their original prototype tractor, the 40K, and the famous “Tail-end Charlie” are both on display at the museum, with Tail End Charlie often seen bringing up the rear of the Tractor Parade procession!
On the second Sunday of each^ month, a parade of restored vintage tractors fire up for a trip around the Park.
Departing from the Tractor Museum of WA, watch and listen as they chug their way up to Revolutions Transport Museum and back!
The best vantage points are near the Tractor Museum, Village Junction Station and along the car parks (especially between the Visitor Information Centre and Whiteman Park Administration).
