Did you go to the markets on Saturday? If you didn’t you might be the only one as it seemed like the whole of Fremantle decided to have dinner at Bathers Beach that evening. We met up with a group of friends and bumped in to a load more over the course of the evening. We had some bruschetta (delicious, try it), pad thai, gozleme, hot dogs little mini fluffy pancake things and paletas for dessert. The wind was blowing hard so it got pretty cold when the sun dropped… need to remember it’s not quite Summer just yet a jacket would have been a good idea.
It’s that time of year, the Summer is almost here so it’s time for the Sunset Markets, HURRAY. Want to see what’s kind of stuff is going on? Check out last year.
Mayor Brad and some City of Fremantle Councillors will be turning on the cliff lights at 7pm just as the sun goes down.
The giant moustache has sprouted on the hotel for the month of Movember. The staff with be on a mission to raise over $5,000 in their first year of supporting the men’s health movement. Go team Esplanade.
We went to the jazz night downstairs at the Odd Fellow last Thursday. We arrived early at 6:30 for a 7:00pm start so we propped ourselves up at the bar for a few drinks. By 7:30 we realised we were two and a half hours early for the show as it was stating at nine but that didn’t matter because we having such a great time. The bar staff at the Odd Fellow are really wonderful and by the time it was jazz o’clock we’d had quite a few cocktails and several cheese plates, damn that delicious triple brie.
Artist Open House Fremantle (AOHF) is a wonderful opportunity to visit the open home of an artist in South Fremantle. All the exhibitions have been curated to be engaging and affordable plus it gives you a great chance to be nosey and see where artists live and work.
Marika had her previous exhibition at Ootong & Lincoln if you remember. Now her latest work is on display at the Tradewinds Hotel restaurant.
Marika takes the chance to print her work on large scale, allowing the colour and graphic imagery to have its full impact on the viewer. The framed works have been lacquered, adding a brushstroke finish that (along with colour and composition) intentionally leaves the viewer wondering if they are looking at a painting or a photograph.
They’re looking for biodiversity and food productive verges in Fremantle and the surrounding suburbs. So out with the lawn and in with everything else.
- Waterwise natives

- Aesthetically pleasing – making for a beautiful place in our community to walk along!
- Any creative ideas get bonus points
We can’t believe it’s festival time again and as usual lots of great stuff on and things to get excited about. It runs all day from the 26th of October 2014 until the end of the 9th of November. The regular favourites still feature like the Norfolk Lanes Youth Festival, it will be moving to the Youth Plaza this year and as usual we’ll be off to see the blessing of the fleet and fireworks.
Here’s some of our picks…
Last year there was a curry craze in Freo, this year we’ve seen a load of new pizza places open up, all of them pretty good. The latest is Crust, which is just out of Freo on South Street. We don’t often write about chain food places (mostly because there aren’t many) but Crust pizzas are something a bit different. We dropped by there just after it opened and tried out a Moroccan lamb pizza (delicious) and a black forest gateau pizza, which is even better than it sounds.
