It’s a very good experience for the kids. We had a great time, the staff were very nice and helpful. Its a good display, you can climb in a fire engine, dress up in the fire fighters uniform. It’s also free. Must visit

Over a year ago the volunteers were friendly and fun. They joked with the visitors and were a wealth of knowledge. Totally different group of people "working" there now and they only talk to each other. The place needs a good clean.

Only open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Some good information and history on Western Australian emergency services. Have a few things for the younger ones to do as well.

Took our young grandson here recently. It was school holidays so was busy, but people were enjoying it. The old trucks are interesting and educational, but the youngsters got the biggest thrill from dressing up and sitting in the cabin of the more modern truck....More
