Embark on an Adventure
Embrace your adventurous side this autumn! From go-karts to helicopter rides, there are so many fun and exciting experiences to discover across the City of Wanneroo. And there’s no better time to tick an item off your bucket list (and support a local operator at the same time!)
So what are you waiting for? Here’s a glimpse at all the awesome ‘autumn adventures’ you can experience right here in Wanneroo.
Lights out and away we go
Feel the need, the need for speed with a visit to Wanneroo Raceway. Channel your inner Daniel Ricciardo by taking a spin in a go-kart on a purpose-built kart track at Mega Fast Karts Wanneroo (1 Wattle Avenue, Neerabup), or get closer to the real deal in a Formula Ford race car by enrolling with Fastlane Racing’s (440 Wattle Avenue, Neerabup) premier racing driver school.
If you don’t feel like getting behind the wheel, but still need to scratch an adrenaline itch, hot laps around Wanneroo Raceway in a V8 Supercar with a professional driver are also available through Fast Track V8 Race (online only).
Looking for a bird’s eye view? Soar above our picturesque coastline with a West Coast Heli Scene flight out of Yanchep National Park.
While you’re there, you could also sample the new Trees Adventure course. With seven difficulty levels involving high ropes and zip lines that wind their way through the tuart canopy, there’s something for ages four and up, right through to something more serious.
It’s all fun and games
Get a team together and step onto the battlefield with WASP Paintball and Laser. With two separate arenas in Wanneroo (Pinjar and Carabooda) and a choice of paintball or laser tag, there’s options aplenty for you and your friends.
With 36 holes nestled amidst an idyllic garden setting, Wanneroo Botanic Garden’s (25 Drovers Place, Wanneroo) outdoor mini golf complex is the largest of its kind in Australia. Tee off times run until 8.30pm, so there’s even the option of hitting the course with some light-up LED balls and making a night of it.
If puzzle-solving is more your speed, pay a visit to Time’s Up Escape Room (24 Dundebar Road, Wanneroo). There are four separate mystery rooms to solve, so return visits with your friends are a must.
Get back to nature
Mindarie Fishing Charters run full-day fishing charters out of Mindarie Marina. With lunch included and a skilled crew at the helm, you are bound to arrive back on dry land with a smile on your face and plenty of catch to share.
Pull on your walking shoes for a hike along the Yaberoo Budjara Heritage Trail, which starts in Neil Hawkins Park in Joondalup and winds its way through Neerabup National Park before concluding at Yanchep National Park. The 28km trail can be completed in sections and traverses verdant tuart and banksia woodland. Or mix history and hiking with a walk along the 10th Light Horse Trail. This 1.2km commemorative heritage trail in Neerabup National Park charts the history of a famed cavalry regiment that was camped in Wanneroo during the Second World War.
Soak in the natural beauty of Yanchep National Park on one of its numerous walking trials, which start small and stretch all the way up to the 12.5km Ghost House Walk. Pitch a tent and camp amongst the kangaroos, pay a visit to the resident koala colony or tour Perth’s only tourist cave, Crystal Cave.
Before you enter the park, don’t forget to head online and pick up your discounted annual pass, exclusively available to City of Wanneroo residents. For just $15 (the same fee as a day pass), you can head back to the park all year round. To find out more visit wanneroo.wa.gov.au/ynp.
