The Way Wanneroo Was

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 of these places 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.

These are the objects being displayed:

  • Leather Satchel - Used by David Sears as a student at the Wanneroo State School in 1948.
  • The Oxford Reading Books IV
  • Western Australian Reader Book VI  Published by the Education Department of Western Australia in 1948.
  • Fob Watch and Case. Presented to Emma Jane Cockman by the Wanneroo Road Board in 1926, to celebrate her 50th wedding anniversary with James Samuel Cockman.

  • The Uniform General By-Laws for Regulating Motor Traffic and Standard Lights to be Carried by all Vehicles  Published by the WA Public Works Department in 1913.
  • E.L. Griffiths Perpetual Trophy, Fruit Section Awarded annually at the Wanneroo Agricultural Show from 1978 to 2011.
