It was used to service the Zig Zag line which transported timber from Canning Mills to the main line at Midland Junction. It is the largest folk museum in Western Australia depicting the unique hills life and industries that developed in the area. The two original railway stations and platform are on the National Trust List of Heritage Places. There are also historic shops, a school, cottages, a saw pit, G118 loco, blacksmiths shop, motor vehicles, and lots of other items of interest.

Midland Railway workshops: All though the Workshops are generally closed, the Machinery Preservation Club operate from there. The Club was formed in 1982 by a small group who had a common interest in old machinery. As the group grew in numbers in 1996 the Club was offered a permanent home in part of the Midland Railway Workshops.

This classic WAGR signal box is only accessible via the footbridge and is above the island platform at the station.The signals box is open on the first Saturday of each month from 10 am - 2pm and is well worth a look.

The Old Mill is a restored tower mill located on Mill Point in South Perth, originally built in 1835, only 6 years after WA was established. Operation ceased in 1859, due to unprofitability and the unsuitable location. Later, it is restored to its original 1830's condition, and in 1957 the Narrow's Bridge was diverted to save it. It is one of Perth's best known historic landmarks and serves as a sightseeing attraction. It was repaired and upgraded and was placed on the register of the National Trust in 1992. The buildings and site is noted as having permanent entry on heritage registers for its architectural and historical significance, and conservation.

The Bennett Brook Railway (part of Whitman Park) is the home of many relocated and restored ex W.A.G.R. buildings and signalling equipment from various locations around WA. The locos and rolling stock has been gathered from railways in W.A., Queensland and South Africa and has been restored to operating condition. Most locos are from mine sites or brick works, although the loco "Ruston" is of interest. A diesel mechanical loco, it left the Ruston & Horsnby works in June 1957 having been sold to Christiani & Neilsen and then later to Bunnings Bros in 1961. This unit was donated to W.A.L.R.P.A by Bunnings Bros from their Manjimup Mill in 1984. See www.bennettbrookrailway.org
