School bus

The wheels on the bus go...

A full-size school bus in a museum is a rare site! In earlier days a total of 25 small schools were established throughout the Kojonup district. The introduction of school buses meant children were eventually transported to the schools in the Kojonup townsite. A couple of generations probably rode on this particular bus. Today, some of the children still travel up to 100 kilometres a day! You can hop aboard the bus and pretend you are on your way to school, enjoying the interactive activities installed to entertain the children.
