Sunday 20 August 17 - Thu 22 Feb 18
Mundaring & Hills Historical Society is excited to present a new exhibition on display in the Mundaring District Museum - housed in the Old School House with Mundaring Visitor Centre.

Since 1830 when exploration parties, accompanied by pack-horses, first ventured over Western Australia’s Darling Range in search of greener pastures, horses’ hoofprints have made a mark on the Hills’ landscape. Whether used for ploughing, warfare, transportation, entertainment or therapy, horses have been integral in shaping and enriching the Shire of Mundaring’s past and present.

This exhibition celebrates the horse, and the many and varied ways humans have interacted with these magnificent animals over the years.
