Connection to Industry Stakeholders

The City of Wanneroo is an active participant in the tourism sector across Perth and WA. We are members of a number of key industry bodies and can use these connections to advocate and promote our destination and local businesses. This includes Tourism Council WA which is the peak body representing tourism businesses, industries and regions in Western Australia.

We also work very closely with Destination Perth which is Perth region’s peak destination marketing organisation responsible for promoting the city and surrounds as a desirable leisure destination. Destination Perth is a not-for-profit organisation, with key funding from Tourism WA, and works collaboratively with members and stakeholders to develop destination marketing activities.

The City plays a key role in leading promotion of the broader region, which is branded as the Sunset Coast. This is an officially recognized precinct with the larger Destination Perth (Regional Tourism Organisation). Stretching from Cottesloe to Two Rocks, the area offers visitors a wide range of experiences from the coastline to the hinterland.

The City is also an active contributor to FACET, (Forum Advocating Cultural & Eco-Tourism), which is Western Australia’s nature, culture and heritage tourism network. They have an affordable membership structure and offer educational and networking workshops and conferences.

Promotion and Media Opportunities 

The City of Wanneroo is committed to support and growth of the visitor economy and the aspirations and goals are set out in the City’s Tourism Plan 2019-2024.

The Plan adopts a collaborative approach and the best outcomes are always achieved when government, key stakeholders and local business have the opportunity to work together. The City undertakes promotion in a number of different ways, including familiariations, photo and videography shoots, competitions and giveaways, television segments in lifestyle programs and engagement of social media influencers.

We also still undertake more traditional medium including creation of our Destination Guide, flyers and paid advertising in key publications.

Dedicated Support Team 

The Advocacy & Economic Development Team are responsible for delivery of the Tourism Plan 2019-2024, along with key internal and external partners. The Team are able to provide a business liaison function to assist with the more complex regulatory questions faced when starting or expanding a business, which might include Planning, Development, Compliance and Health. We work behind the scenes on review of the City’s Planning Scheme, regulation and processes, to ensure we strive for a small business friendly environment.
