10863 Bushranger presented by ActBelongCommit

10863 Bushranger showcases artworks created by WA visual artist Di Taylor and tells the life and adventures of Frank Thomas, a young bushranger from the Mid West region of Western Australia. Thomas regularly appeared in the news in the early 1920s for his skill as a rider and bushman, for eluding police and for escaping custody on multiple occasions. He spent time at both Geraldton Gaol and Fremantle Prison, with The West Australian comparing his exploits to the Kelly gang!

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!
