Fremantle Story Magazine | Summer 2016/17 Edition

It’s been ages coming but summer is HERE! We've got you covered (literally) with our fab and quirky collection of thongs, hats and togs from Fremantle’s gorgeous shops. Next stop is the beach but before you head out read up on what’s special about each of our beaches–they’re all quite different and there’s one or two you may not know about. We've highlighted a couple of those ‘off grid’ places that only the locals know about, the warehouse district of Knutsford Street Precinct and North of North Fremantle. Keep us posted with your summer fun and #Fremantlestory. You might end up in our captures section! The Fremantle story team The Fremantle story magazine is currently available at Fremantle Visitor Centre,  cafés, cinemas, restaurants, hotels, universities and colleges in Fremantle and wider Perth metropolitan area. 

Kurun Warun

Kurun Warun's paintings of culture and environment use colours inspired by natural resources and cultural body markings.  Kurun Warun continues the great Aboriginal tradition of telling stories of the people and their environment, how they lived in their country and managed its resources. Kurun Warun refers to his work as “living culture – our story”. His use of colour reflects the primary resources of the people – red, black and white are used to convey cultural body markings and structures found in nature.
