The Dirk Hartog Festival is on at Fremantle’s Victoria Quay from midday today so come along for a day of entertainment, food and history!

Hartog set foot on WA soil at Shark Bay on October 25 1616, 400 years ago, well before the English, who settled in Fremantle in 1829 and started the Swan River Colony.
