What lies behind

Pop quiz question: Where can you get a black pearl, a nose ring, a Nepalese tunic, a kebab, some collectable vinyl, some artwork from a pop-up gallery, painted nails and a Thai massage, all within paces of an easy park? Hard-core fossickers will tell you that rewards like this abound in the warren-like malls and arcades of Fremantle. No chain store ennui here. Some fiercely individual businesses – many of them operating for more than a decade – have made their homes in the eclectic patch around Paddy Troy Mall and Fremantle Malls (the alley off William Street near Kings Square). Emporium-styleJoynt Venture has moved premises a few times (from the Freo markets to a bolt hole in the piazza to the roomy premises it now occupies) keeping loyal customers on their toes. But they’re happily tucked away off Paddy Troy Mall and, after 40 years of trade, they’re the go-to place for everything from heavy metal and punk tees to hair colour, sunglasses, body jewellery, posters and coloured contact lenses. Street smartDuring the week there’s easy parking around Paddy Troy mall, and the vibe is relaxed; fine conditions for investigating the offerings at Wear 2, the business whose urban gear has been bridging the vintage, surf and skate cultures for seven years. Think tees, footwear, and hats, with clearance items sourced from the US and elsewhere. Bike bitsCaptain Walkers Cycles is a tucked away cyclists Mecca; a destination store with a loyal following, this one for lovers of hip bikes (plus parts and personable service) without the intimidating attitude. Hard-core fossickers will tell you that rewards like this abound in the warren-like malls and arcades of Fremantle. No chain store ennui here.  BlingAround the corner on William Street, Fremantle Opals’ slick display and service shows why it’s won the Fremantle Chamber’s Retail Excellence Award for two years running. They’ve got jewel-coloured opals from around Australia and pearls from the north, set in all imaginable ways – rings, earrings, cufflinks and pendants. Not belly bars or ear lobe rings, though. That’s more the domain of The Piercing Places across the mall. And what you can’t find in body bling here is probably not worth having. Funky threadsHarking back to the Kathmandu style first made fashionable in the 1970s? Nomad Gnome in Fremantle Malls has the solution in full technicolour. Drop-crutch pants, jackets, dresses and skirts in cheerful colours and prints are made to order in Nepal, for folks who like to dress in a way that’s not dictated by this season’s trends. Spun tunesFurther down the mall, Junction Records offers great fossicking potential, with its shop full of new and second hand vinyl, CDs and DVDs. Having been around for 20 years, they’ve witnessed the ever-evolving music scene and have lived to see the rise (again) of vinyl, and the changes in music buying habits. Specialists in classic rock and psychedelic music, they’ve got plenty for the dedicated flicker-through. RefreshmentWhen it’s time to get off the feet, Parlapa will be cooking up an authentic Italian lunch, and The Federal Hotel will be standing by to quench your thirst. And all without leaving this one compact patch of off-strip Freo.

Wray Avenue

Take a leisurely stroll down the intimate enclave of Wray Avenue and you will feel like you have returned home. There is a strong sense of community spirit in this dynamic microcosm and before you know it you’ll be chatting to the person next to you like you’re old friends. A subtle European flavour permeates this cosy precinct, which is evident as soon as you walk into the family-run Galati & Sons. Here, make sure to pick up some fresh, seasonal produce, peruse the shelves laden with all different types of pasta—some of which you may never have heard of—and try not to eavesdrop on the nonnas gossiping next to you in Italian. Then, wander next door to Frank’s Gourmet Meats, where the signage outside may have you temporarily overwhelmed, and step inside where personalised service of an era gone by awaits.     Frank's Gourmet MeatsOnce your dinner needs are sorted, return to the present by popping into the eclectic Pekho: wear + wares store to browse their vast range of urban homewares and accessories.

Hunting for treasures may have you feeling thirsty so saunter over to Lenny the Ox, partly owned by the same outfit behind that other Fremantle institution Ootong & Lincoln, where you can linger outside with a coffee and watch the world meander on by. For a healthier alternative, The Little Concept (TLC) serves up delicious acai smoothies alongside their famous red espresso range.   The Little Concept You’ll leave with a smile on your face and already planning your next visit: it’s a happy, close-knit family here—one where everyone is welcome.
