A couple of weeks ago the WA Weekender featured Yanchep and surrounding areas on 3 segments of the show.

For those that missed them here they are:

Did you spot King Neptune, the picture was supplied by one of our local Photographers Dave Catley of MADCAT Photography and MAD About WA.

With school holidays coming up maybe these Wanneroo Adventures will give you some ideas.

If you want to know where Wanneroo started you will learn about the early settlers in this segment.

Did you know that until fairly recently Wagardu Lake was known as Loch McNess?

I thought this was due to the superstition there was a monster which attacks the unwary. You can imagine many many years ago sitting beside the lake at night with all the rushes and trees, the weird shapes that would dance about the land and water as the sun set. So is this a reference to the Scottish water with the same superstitions?

Well the fact is it was named after a wealthy Western Australian Philanthropist Sir Charles McNess.

It has been renamed back to Wagardu Lake in recognition of its original name.
