Out and About
Updated: Oct 6, 2021
Not strictly Out and About in Nature but museums give an insight into how life was lived before all our mod cons as well as teaching us about the land we live on. The picture shows the wagon driving along Wanneroo Road which had jarrah blocks laid to form a foundation on the loose dirt.
Wanneroo Museum is only small but is packed full of things to see and interact with. There is a museum clue hunt for the kids to do.
During school terms you and your child (aged 2-5) can explore the past together through games, stories, crafts and real artefacts. Activities are self-led with staff on hand to provide ideas on how to enjoy your time at the museum.
Entry to the museum is free. Check the website for opening hours and school holiday activities. Wanneroo Museum is located in the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre on Rocca Way on the corner of Dundebar Drive in Wanneroo.
If you enjoy heritage you can also visit nearby Buckingham House on Neville Drive in Wanneroo, walk the Wanneroo Cultural and Civic Trail or visit Cockman House in Woodvale. The kids will also enjoy a play at the all abilities Opportunity Playspace at Rotary Park in Wanneroo.
In the spirit of reconciliation Out and About- Family Nature Connection acknowledges the traditional owners of the Wadjak boodjar (Perth land) and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
