Heritage Centre

The Scouts WA Heritage Centre is more than a museum: it is filled with great activities for youth members to entertain and inform, and is a gathering point for leaders and the general public interested in the history of Scouting in Western Australia.

The Heritage Centre offers a range of activities including:

  • a Heritage Trail;
  • uniforms and equipment to try on;
  • a collection of historical Scouting items to check out;
  • Morse code activities;
  • Information about Scouting history; and
  • a reference library to browse.

The activities are particularly suitable for Cub Scouts and Scout Units and can generally fill a program of 90 minutes.

Volunteer With Us

The Heritage Centre is entirely run by volunteers and if you’d like to help out, there’s plenty to do. We always need help cataloguing our collection, doing further research, answering questions or helping with publicity. Contact us if you’re able to help out.

Getting Here

The Heritage Centre is located at 1729 Albany Hwy, Kenwick WA 6107.

On public transport, you can get to the new home of the Heritage Centre from Kenwick Train Station (about a 5-10-minute journey) or by catching the 220 bus.

Opening Hours

The Heritage Centre is open from 10 am to 2 pm on Tuesdays and by arrangement – please contact us to arrange a visit for your group.
