A local government that demonstrates an outstanding whole-of-agency approach to the commitment and promotion of cultural heritage and/or heritage-related work, services or programs in Western Australia.
The City of Wanneroo has demonstrated they are invested in protecting and promoting the cultural heritage of Wanneroo through their recently developed Cultural Plan with a focus on heritage, museums and the arts.
The city has shown great commitment to protecting the wreck of the Alex T Brown, one of only two four-masted schooners wrecked in Australia. The wreck lies on a Yanchep beach and is one of the few shipwrecks occasionally visible to the public along the metropolitan coast when it becomes exposed during winter storms.
The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
