About the Wap
The WAP is a series of events during spring which culminates in a traditional procession and festival dating back to the Middle Ages. Various theories exist on how it began, although most villagers believe it was a celebration that followed the completion of building Randwick's parish church. The Wap was revived by Randwick's late vicar, Rev. Nial Morrison, in 1972 and has steadily grown to become one of the region's leading annual events.
