Enjoy a free heritage bus ride
Bus preservation members are dedicated to preserving the heritage of buses used in WA.


They operate from Whiteman Park, which is located 18 kilometres north-east from Perth.

They have a collection of over 35 buses with some working and others being restored. The colour scheme of buses are close to original MTT (Metrolpolitan Transport Trust) livery colours.

Every Monday they offer a free one hour guided tour through Whiteman Park. The tours depart from near the visitors information centre and commence at 11.00am and is repeated again at 1.00pm.

The driver's area

A park guide on board tells you interesting facts about the park, as the bus winds it way along the narrow roads to Mussel Pool for a short walk. Then on board again as we head to Revolutions Transport Museum for a quick look inside before it's back to our starting point.


You may walk back to Mussel Pool and to Revolutions Museum to enjoy more sights at your own pace.

The Society always welcomes new members to join them in various roles as bus drivers or tradespeople working on restoring their fleet and to help promote WA bus heritage.
