Army Museum of Western Australia

The Army Museum of WA has a collection that encompasses material from the pre-federation period through to the present day, covering both peace-time army units as well as the involvement of West Australians in all major conflicts and operations that Australia was engaged in throughout this period including the South African War, World War 1, World War 2, the Korean War, South Vietnam and the more recent operations such as East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan. The role of women's services in many of these major conflicts and operations is also integrated with the museum's displays covering these. Highly recommended as one of the top things to do in Fremantle. Allow at least two hours to explore the excellent interpretive displays that provide unique insights into Western Australia's involvement in these conflicts. Over 100 experienced and knowledgable volunteers assist with the day to day operations of the museum which attracts many thousands of school groups each year.  Easy access via the free Fremantle CAT bus (red route). Stop 8 is a 5 minute walk from the Army Museum. Please note: All adults will require some form of photo ID when entering the museum e.g drivers licence.

Artwalk Freo 2015

In late 2014, a small group of established Fremantle artists came together spontaneously with the idea to open their homes and studios to the public for one weekend. At short notice, over 400 people visited each day and Artwalk Freo was born. Building on the success of that inaugural event, this year the artists will once again open to the public on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of September. Why not bring Dad along for a unique Fathers Day celebration! The creative process can be a solitary one and people rarely have the opportunity to glimpse inside a working studio and observe. An artist's studio is where all the inspiration, sketches, thoughts and ideas merge together to become something wonderful. For Artwalk Freo visitors, being able to walk around and soak in that creative atmosphere, and discuss artworks with the artists can be an insightful and inspiring experience! This year, some of the Artwalk Freo artists have also invited friends and guest artists from other creative disciplines to enhance the experience and have some fun. Guest artists include Ron Nyisztor, Penny Bovell, Penny Coss and writer-radio presenter Adam Shand. Artwalk Freo will be on regardless of the weather forecast, so if you're game so are we! There will also be Art Talks held during the day in each studio.  New work, early work and studies will be available for sale and each artist will have their own payment options: receipted cash, credit card, direct deposit and lay-by. Refreshments and other treats will also be available for sale.
