Ballarat Engine

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Ballarat Engine was Western Australia’s first steam locomotive which now sits proudly on display in Victoria Square, Busselton. Train enthusiasts will enjoy reading about the history of the engine, which played a significant role in the town’s thriving timber industry in the late 1800s.

Children will be impressed by the vintage train that is housed under a wooden gazebo. Spend some time in Victoria Square relaxing under the giant native trees. Pay your respects at the Anzac War Memorial, built to commemorate the servicemen and women who lost their lives in the World Wars.

See the Ballarat Engine in conjunction with a visit to the Busselton Heritage Park and Trail which includes various other points of interest along the way. The Ballarat Engine is located opposite the Busselton Visitor Centre. Busselton is a two and a half hour drive south of Perth.
