Jarrahdale Heritage Society
Jarrahdale Heritage Society is housed within the post and telegraph office that served Jarrahdale from 1896 to 1972. The museum provides a peek into life here in the early days, taking visitors back to the region’s timber milling heyday and providing an insight into everyday life for its early European residents. It serves as something of a visitor centre for the region, with brochures and information about the many walks which meander along riversides and through the forest. Society volunteers also guide walks around the region to share their love of history and nature. You can spend time in the oral history corner listening to memories of early residents, buy a gift in the small shop, set out on a walk along Gooralong Brook or bike the Munda Biddi bike trail from here. Young visitors will adore finding the toy rats hidden in unlikely places in the museum, getting creative at the colouring-in station, and a tiny and intricate model of the interior of the Postmaster’s house. For a spookier experience, be sure to ask about the ghost who is said to reside here. While you're in the district, consider visiting the Hugh Manning Tractor and Machinery Museum near Serpentine.
