Western Australia’s human history goes back for thousands of years, with estimates ranging from 40,000 to 60,000 years. No matter where you venture throughout the South West, you will see signs of our Indigenous Australian heritage, culture, and artwork. This ancient population carved out their lands, hunted in the forests, fished in their amazing waters, worshiped their gods, and used Mother Nature’s resources to create artwork and weave tapestries with handmade techniques that continue to be used today by their modern era descendants.
Much of the Margaret River modern culture, and the development of our South West, began over 200 years ago in settlements such as Busselton.
All of these historic treasures are on display in our local museums. Pack your interest, bring a big dose of curiosity, and rediscover our wonderful past.
