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.

Across the road, artisan garment shop, Madam Bukeshla, sells hand-stitched, understated designs created by textile artist Trish Bygott, as well as running occasional workshops.

Don’t forget to venture around the corner onto South Terrace to local boutique Staple Store to pick up some relaxed boho apparel, and, for the gentlemen, visit the quirky Diamond Aps Mens Recycling Boutique to see what oneof-a-kind gems you might uncover. 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.

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.

From Fremantle's West End with love

The western end of High Street and surrounding side streets has long been recognised for beautiful architecture and hass recently been included in the State Register of Heritage Places as a place that represents the story of Western Australian history and development.

We’re a bit in love with Fremantle’s West End.

The connection to Fremantle’s past is significant but it’s the flavour and energy of the place now that pulls you in. It’s the buzz of students from Notre Dame moving between lectures or sitting at parklets outside some of Freo’s eclectic cafés and restaurants like Chalkys Espresso and Moore and Moore Cafe.

It’s the collectives like Artisan and Common Ground Collective and shops that specialise in stunning design, jewellery, fashion, vintage records and books or the creative set operating out of studios in basements, warehouses and upper levels. They’ve all got a story to share, here’s ours X
