Technology and the great outdoors go hand in hand in this ‘Appsolute’ must for families!
The new Discover Wanneroo app is highly interactive and includes selfie frames, before and after photo sliders, quizzes and treasure hunts.
Find trails within the City of Wanneroo, to drive, walk or cycle and discover so much more about the history, heritage, flora and fauna around the area.
Discover more on the Shipwreck Trail, the 10th Light Horse Trail and the Public Art Safari.
Initially featuring the City’s shipwreck trail, you can use the app for a deep dive into this fascinating part of our maritime history and explore the stories of the wrecks, including the Eglinton and Alkimos.
Collect your own Piece of Treasure.
Visit all four shipwreck locations on the coastline and reveal a special four digit code. Each location has an interpretive sign, so you know you are in the right place! If you then visit the Wanneroo Regional Museum, with your mobile phone, you can unlock the treasure chest and collect your own replica Vergulde Draeck pewter coin.*
Check-in with a postcard at each location and unlock your secret code.
Public Art Safari
There are over 160 artworks within the City of Wanneroo’s Public Art Collection and these are located in 17 suburbs ranging from Girrawheen/Koondoola in the south to Yanchep/Two Rocks in the north. Thirty-four of the best pieces are found along this Public Art Safari trail, with information on each artist and the stories behind the art.
When we lift each other we can fly is a mural at the entrance to the Butler Community Centre by artist Hayley Welsh & Butler Primary School students. Recognised for her surreal, wide-eyed creatures and street art, Hayley creates whimsical new worlds with these affable monsters as our guides. This unique artwork encourages us all to enjoy the wonder of childhood and is a reminder to listen to our own little voice.
This is just one of the stories behind the artwork. If you have other questions, contact [email protected]

10th Light Horse Trail
The 10th Light Horse Regiment was stationed in Wanneroo during World War II and to commemorate this, visitors can enjoy a 1.2 km heritage walk around the second camp established by the regiment. Follow the trail points on the app to learn more about camp life.
The heritage trail is located in Neerabup National Park north of Flynn Drive.
Check-in at the trail head of the Trail to claim your miniature horse! When you come within the range, a tile will unlock. Simply take a picture and return to the grid on your mobile device to reveal a screen that you can use to claim your horseshoe. The hand-crafted pewter horseshoe can be collected from the Wanneroo Regional Museum.
