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 team Look out for our printed magazine at visitor centres, cafés, galleries, cinemas, restaurants, bars, universities in Perth and Freo. 

The Fremantle Story Magazine | Winter 2017

Kaya, Wanju. Hello, welcome... our Nyoongar greeting for this edition to celebrate NAIDOC Week with its theme this year of ‘our languages matter’. You can sign up for a Nyoongar language class as part of the Djeran seasonal program at The Meeting Place (page 12). Our Freo story writers have picked out six cosy corners and inspired winter reading to warm your insides. And no languishing over winter, the Freo Clubs story offers inspiration to seek out a local haunt for a game of darts, billiards or lawn bowls. Or maybe live music and dancing is more your thing? We’re excited to add another self–guided walking trail to the Explore Fremantle bag. It’s the ultimate vintage shopping trail to help you find an undiscovered retro gem. We recommend adding a few comforting cake stops along the way.  The Fremantle story team Look out for our printed magazine at visitor centres, cafés, galleries, cinemas, restaurants, bars, universities in Perth and Freo.
