Wet and Wild: Frogs of the Kimberley

Presented by Dr Paul Doughty, Curator of Herpetology, Western Australian Museum The Kimberley region of Western Australia receives summer rains during its 'wet season'. Given the many environments of the region, from savannah plains to rugged sandstone outcrops, this has resulted in a great diversity of frog species, resulting in the most frog-rich area of the state. The main types of frogs in the area are the conspicuous tree frogs, several species of rockhole frogs, burrowing frogs, sedge frogs and an especially rich group of ground-dwelling species. Join Dr Paul Doughty, Curator of Herpetology, Western Australian Museum, as he presents a 'who's who' of these species, and highlights recent discoveries with more species to be described.

The Fremantle Comedy Factory

The Fremantle Comedy Factory is a developmental room for new and experienced comedians. The aim is to give acts an opportunity to perform, try out new material, or polish off their favourite bits. Each week will feature 10 difference comedians (Don't worry, there's a break after 5 acts so you can catch your breath after laughing so hard), plus a professional MC. Each week we pack the Red Room upstairs at the Sail and Anchor full of great entertainment that is guaranteed to make you laugh, plus there's weekly mystery prizes to be won. Whether you're an experience performer, want to give it a crack for the first time, or just love comedy, we'd love to see you there as a punter, participant, or to support your local comedians. Entry by stairs only

The Hidden Sound

The Hidden Sound - a series of intimate concerts in secret spaces around Perth. Jarrad Seng has teamed up with some of his favourite local creatives to put this all together. The first one will be on the 31st of July in Fremantle. The venue and the artist(s) remain a mystery until the very last minute. It could be the busker you walk past every day on the street, it could be your favourite local band... it could be me playing the melodica? It could be pop or hip hop or folk music - who knows. It doesn't matter - it's all about taking a little time to *really* listen to good music, without pre-conceptions or expectations... and being a part of something that exists only for one night... Tickets are only $25 and available tomorrow morning at 9am from www.thehiddensound.com.au. Only 100 tickets available - hope to see you there
