Wreck signs sur­face along coast­line

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

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.
