Museum of the Great Southern

The Torbay School building – an old one room, one teacher school – stands as a tribute to Western Australia's pioneer teachers. The building fosters an appreciation and understanding of the history of rural education, and the conditions experienced in early settlement days.

This old school building is also used for school holiday activities, special events and Museum programs. Events are posted in the "what's on" calendar in the website.
