Bathers Beach Markets – Bigger and Better

15 Dec 2013
December 15, 2013

We went to the Bathers Beach Markets last night. The new layout is great. There are stalls from Kidogo along Bathers Beach, the Roundhouse all the way to the J-Shed. It’s a nice little stroll with music along the way. Each area has it’s own feel – the original site around Kidogo is the buzzy place full of picnickers, while J-Shed is more laid-back and arty. Our favourite spot was the Taco-place at the whaling tunnel, where you can chill out and watch the sunset on beach chairs away from the hustle and bustle. Did anyone of you try the camel-ride?

Dave’s Cans Opens

10 Dec 2013
December 10, 2013

If you were anywhere near the centre of Freo last Sunday afternoon or evening you probably heard the humming bass coming from somewhere high up. That was the opening party for Dave’s Cans, the new bar/nightclub/event venue that is part of the MYRE project. It was a chilly evening by the time we got there, but the place was packed, the DJs were playing, and unlike the last event up here it wasn’t 50 deep at the bar 🙂 It’s great to see the space being used and we’re looking forward to the whole rooftop coming alive with various other projects over the summer months.

October 30, 2013

The Blessing of the Fleet is the busiest day of the year at Fish Boat Harbour. A procession of mainly Italian* fishermen and their families walk through the streets of Fremantle to the harbour. Many of the fishing enterprises housed at Fremantle are descended from the Italian towns of Molfetta on the Adriatic Sea, and Capo d’Orlando in Sicily. All the boats are adorned with flowers and bunting and it’s fantastically colourful.

Myre Fremantle We Love You

18 Oct 2013
October 18, 2013

MYRE doors have been opened to the public for just over a week and you really pay the great folk inside a visit. We were impressed with the undertaking. This is NOT a pop-up shop, but a really cool new venue for fashion and accessories, art and design, salons and beauty, and food and drink. Everything is locally designed, planned, made and sold. It’s a place to hang out, nurture individual style, to dare and be different. You can look forward to meeting the designers, makers and doers, who have managed to make this space more inspiring and welcoming than it has ever been.
