Wikipedia Takes Waroona is a photo scavenger hunt in the spirit of Wikipedia Takes Your City to be held in Waroona, Western Australia, located 112 kilometres (70 mi) south of the city of Perth. It follows from the successes of Freopedia & Wiki Takes Joondalup, its the first such event to occur in regional Western Australia, and is being organised by the Waroona Visitors Centre, Shire of Waroona along with WikiProject Western Australia and Wikimedia Australia.

You don't have to be involved in Wikipedia, or an amazing photographer, or anything in particular other than interested in Waroona and helping record just one day in history. A list of goals is provided, and you walk/ride/drive around the area taking some number of photos of each of them, before regrouping back at the venue in the afternoon for uploading and an all day morning/afternoon tea.
