Annual Report 2015-2016 - Our City

Mindarie Marina

The City of Wanneroo is a rapidly expanding local government located on the northern edge of the Greater Perth Metropolitan area, approximately 12km from the Perth CBD at its nearest point and 62km at its furthest point.

Our City covers an area of 684km², has 32 kilometres of coastline and is made up of 36 suburbs. It is one of Western Australia’s fastest growing local government authorities and has
consistently been chosen by many as a preferred place to live and do business.

The City literally has something for everyone; from coastal plains to wetlands, from market gardens to residential homes, from thick bushland to urban development.

For businesses, Wanneroo is a place of opportunity, with the Clarkson and Wanneroo secondary centres providing strong retail and associated employment opportunities, and the Wangara Industrial Area providing a hub for office headquarters, showrooms and manufacturing.

Future growth will see new lifestyle and business opportunities in the rapidly growing coastal corridor and major emerging activity centres at Alkimos, Neerabup and Yanchep.
