City of Wanneroo

Just 20 minutes north of the CBD on the Sunset Coast, the City of Wanneroo boasts 32km of pristine beaches, two picturesque marinas, endless water-based activities, intriguing historical sites, and many of the state’s best nature reserves.

A place of significant natural beauty, the City stretches from Girrawheen in the south to Two Rocks in the north, and with 53% of the area classed as a regional reserve, it is a hotspot for walking trails and biodiversity discovery. You can explore dunes, limestone cliffs and bushland, beautiful species of wildflower and native animals, race tracks, and even book a helicopter flight to hover above the breath-taking landscape.

The City of Wanneroo also has a significant stake in Perth’s cultural heritage. The area is fortunate to have three heritage sites: the historic houses of Cockman House and Buckingham House, as well as the Wanneroo Regional Museum. Located within the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre, the museum opened in September 2009 with a generous exhibition space representing a range of stories and themes – from the region’s Indigenous past through to modern pioneers of city planning. Whilst at the Cultural Centre, visitors can also explore local visual culture at the on-site art gallery.

Throughout the year the City council puts on an array of community-based events. On Australia Day, Wanneroo Showgrounds is transformed into a hub of activities for the Wanneroo Festival. Over the course of summer, Wanneroo residents can enjoy free outdoor movies at the Jacaranda Amphitheatre. The council even boasts a free Dog’s Breakfast in October, which welcomes pooches and families across the City.

        The Ghost House Walk Trail takes you on a journey to discover the natural and cultural history of the wilderness areas in Yanchep National Park, an hour north of Perth. 

        Join the trail via the board-walked Wetlands Trail which skirts North Lake and takes you through the wetlands area which is teaming with bird life. Keep an eye out for the Yanget (bullrush) used by local Noongar people for food.

        The Ghost House Walk Trail offers plenty of interst and variety as it passes through tuart forest, banksia woodlands and coastal heath. The trail ends at Cabaret Cave and is a short walk back to the hub of Yanchep where you can stop for a coffee, refreshing ale or lunch.

        One of the draw cards of Yanchep is the koala Boardwalk.  Koalas are fussy eaters and only eat certain types of eucalyptus leaves.  They are not native to Western Australia and Yanchep is one of the few places you can see them.  You'll pass through the koala feed plantation on your way from McNess House to the start of the trail.

        Yanchep National Park is a hub of walk trails of varying length and difficulty.  After completing your walks, why not hire a boat to row over the lake (seasonal), take a guided tour of the caves, visit the koalas or enjoy a barbeque in the park amongst the kangaroos.

            • Type:Entertainment Venues



              The Limelight Theatre is situated in Civic Drive, in the heart of the Wanneroo townsite. It is managed and operated by Wanneroo Repertory Inc., a not-for-profit organisation.
              It was first established in 1973 and is governed by an 11 member Executive Committee elected by the repertory membership. Volunteers for all aspects of operation (productions, front of house, theatre maintenance, properties, membership services, financial control) are drawn from the repertory’s membership.
              Each year, the repertory presents six major production seasons. These are very well-attended and often sell out soon after opening. Our patrons are not only drawn from the Cities of Wanneroo and Joondalup but also include avid theatregoers from as far away as south of the river.
              Although the theatre building and its contents were funded by the repertory through its own fundraising and various grants, the land on which it sits is owned by and leased from the City of Wanneroo. The lease is for a five-year term and will next be reviewed in 2018.
