The City of Wanneroo’s oldest remaining residence, Cockman House, opens its doors to heritage loving visitors every Sunday afternoon. Built by James Cockman and completed in 1860, Cockman House holds a special place in Wanneroo’s rich history as the home of one of its earliest settler families.

Visitors can pack a picnic to enjoy on the beautiful grounds and play some old fashioned games including quoits and skittles. No visit would be complete without a tour of the historic building to gain a fascinating insight into the lives of the pioneering Cockman family.
