The Fremantle Story Magazine | Autumn 2018

Time flies when you're having fun finding new, quirky and unique stories celebrating all things Freo.   Hard to believe Containbow was installed just over a year ago. It's become a symbol of marriage equality and hugely popular backdrop for wedding photos. We've found top spots in Freo to add to the wedding album collection.   Celebrations will be in full swing as Fremantle International Street Arts Festival marks it's twentieth anniversary delighting audiences over the Easter weekend.   On the shop front, we extol the collective of Freo's menswear shops that have defied retail trends to survive in the West End.   We're onto the idea of grocery sightseeing, follow your nose into some of the local gourmet establishments to pick up an indulgent little treat to take home along with fond memories of Freo.

The Fremantle Story Magazine | Spring 2016

The spring edition marks our fourth edition and the start of sunny days and warmer weather. It also brings the start of the festival season in Fremantle. We’ve featured just a few festivals and events coming up over the next few months in our pull out event calendar (make sure you pop it on your fridge!). Fremantle Festival returns in October with a stellar line up of concerts and performances centred around a festival hub at Fremantle Town Hall. In the first of a four part series we are proud to share stories from the traditional owners of Fremantle or Walyalup as it is known to traditional owners, the Whadjuk Nyoongar people. Pull up a chair, grab a coffee, sit back and enjoy your spring read.

The Fremantle Story Magazine | Spring 2017

You can always pick the start of spring in Freo. On the first sunny weekend the alfresco tables along the western side of the Cappuccino Strip are full to bursting - everyone's looking for a little patch of sunshine after a cold, wet winter. The change of season heralds the start of the festival season. The fully curated Fremantle Festival is on from 27 October to 5 November. Music, comedy, performance, visual arts and talks are all in the mix of free events and ticketed offerings. We've included our pick of spring events in the pull-out calendar but it's worth checking our website to find out more. Another way into spring fever is to drag that bike out of the shed and take the perfect Freo cycle from South Beach to Leighton (page 6). It's an easy, flat ride form beach to beach (about 7 km), with added texture courtesy of street art, river back streets and port. See you in the sunshine.

The Fremantle Story Magazine | Summer 2017-18

Fremantle in summer–it’s where memories are made! Maybe it’s during a family day out, paddling the tunnels beneath the Fremantle Prison or splashing about at Bathers Beach. Perhaps it’s when canvassing the ice cream options around town, trying to choose between a gelato sandwich and a muffle. It could be at cocktail hour, wandering between small bars discovering your new favourite tipple. Or at that perfect moment during one of the many summer festivals, when the heady effects of sunshine, music and smiling crowds seep into your fondest memories. Or it might be when you learn just how many Freo businesses welcome not just you, but also your pooch. And when it dawns on you just how much is on offer during summer in Fremantle, we’ve got some suggestions for that, too. Staycation, anyone? Happy memory-making.
