It's Time (and Time Again): Elections that made history, a free talk by Assoc Prof Martin Drum

When Gough Whitlam persuaded Australians in 1972 that it was time for a change, he ushered in the modern age of political campaigning. Labor strategist, Bruce Hawker, has since suggested that the Whitlam campaign “became the gold mark for future successful elections. Perhaps it was the high water mark, too.”  There is little doubt that Australian history has been shaped by powerful and dramatic electoral moments.  This is a fantastic opportunity to hear Martin Drum, Notre Dame’s well-known political analyst, explore those elections that made history.

Wildlife Zoo at the Markets

We love having West Oz Wildlife, one of Perth’s leading wildlife petting zoos, at Fremantle Markets. They provide a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with native Australian animals such as koalas, snakes & dingoes. You can usually only glimpse such animals amidst big crowds in larger reserves or zoos. Our Wildlife Zoo offers a more intimate approach, allowing both children and adults to experience these animals in a smaller and more relaxed setting. Entry by Gold Coin Donation. Don't forget your camera!

A little historical tour… of the Little Creatures Brewery

It started with a group of mates with a love of beer and a former crocodile farm. From these humble beginnings on the water’s edge in Fremantle came an awesome, hop-driven American Pale Ale with distinctive aroma and delicious flavour…and the start of the Little Creatures journey. From there you probably all think you know the story…. but do you? Join us for an in depth, historical tour through the Little Creatures brewery. Learn our story, about our site and our brewing process and the history of craft brewing in WA and Australia.     Finish off with a guided tasting of the Little Creatures beers just in time to join our Beer through the Ages Quiz Night happening in Creatures NextDoor Red Room just after the tour.

Vintage Adventure Travel Series - One Map For Two

Two Italian buddies score a pair of 175cc Ducatis and whizz around the unspoilt world of the 1950s, filming as they go, their footage lies forgotten for decades, until now. Tartarini and Monetti were just a pair of regular post-war tutti-frutti Italian teens. Unimpressed that for a few decades ‘the trains ran on time’, they realise that there are plenty of roads that lead away from Rome. Naturally, like any sane people, they intuitively cognate that this planet is best enjoyed by motorbike, and with 350cc wedged between their collective thighs they set off for the unknown. Their experience is nothing short of a spectacular adventure and they prove to all of us in 2017, with our apps and Facebook that lifechanging world-travel is all about attitude, not accessories. We should watch this film and resolve to hit the road, pronto!
