Overview

From its creation in the wake of the bubonic plague outbreaks; to the Depression Era when it provided a home to the homeless unemployed; to the many voices that spoke at the bandstands and on free speech days; to the important institutions that fringe its edge – the Esplanade Park has stories of Fremantle to tell. Join Dr Michelle McKeough, a historian at Murdoch University as she shares the Park’s stories.
