A popular day trip from Perth
Located 26 km north of Perth Wanneroo is, in reality, an outer suburb of the city. It has, in recent times, become one of the popular day trips from the city with motorists making their way out of the city and heading towards Wanneroo, Yanchep and the beaches along the coast.
The city of Wanneroo is driven by those industries which thrive on the edge of a capital city. Hence this is an area of market gardening, poultry farms, vineyards and purpose built industrial areas. This has inevitably brought the housing developments, with their unimaginative project homes and precise little suburban blocks, as people have moved to the area taking up jobs in the factories.
