; Shipwrecks - City of Wanneroo


The Alex T.Brown shipwreck

History has been brought to life with a series of informative signs installed at significant shipwreck sites along the City of Wanneroo’s coast.

Onshore signs now act as physical markers for shipwrecks in Alkimos, Eglinton, Two Rocks and Yanchep, providing history, stories and images of each wreck.

Further information about each shipwreck can be found by clicking below, as well as on the City’s new free mobile app, Discover Wanneroo (search on your devices app store).

Shipwreck information

The app provides an interactive and entertaining way to discover more about the City of Wanneroo through videos, quizzes, selfie frames and games including a shipwreck treasure hunt for children. 

When in the vicinity of each of the newly installed shipwreck signs, the app unlocks a secret code, and when all four codes are revealed, a special replica treasure pewter coin can be claimed when people visit the Wanneroo Regional Museum.
