Wreck signs surface along coastline
A SERIES of signs along the City of Wanneroo coastline provide information about the history of several shipwrecks.
The signs in Alkimos, Jindalee, Two Rocks and Yanchep provide history, stories and images of
wrecks of the Alkimos, Eglinton, Alex T. Brown
and Vergulde Draeck wrecks respectively.
“In recent years the City has received many queries from people curious about the various shipwrecks along the City’s shore, particularly the Alkimos which is visible from the popular Waterfront Park,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.
“The signage aligns with the City of Wanneroo’s tourism strategy to attract visitors to our beaches and this new shipwreck trail is an ideal way to promote the City’s spectacular coastline.”
Further information about each shipwreck can be found in the City’s free mobile app, Discover Wanneroo.
