Even before the establishment of the Wanneroo townsite at the Wanneroo Road 16 mile peg in 1907, a number of important community places began to spring up to service the needs of the growing district. Most have come and gone, a few remain, but all have been important places in the building of the Wanneroo community we know today. This new display brings out objects from the Wanneroo Regional Museum collection, tangible reminders of The Way Wanneroo Was. On display until 22 June.
