FIRING THE CANNON AT THE ROUNDHOUSE

It was interesting to hear at the Roundhouse today that there are still many people in Fremantle, and some in the tourism industry, who don’t know that the volunteer guides fire the cannon every day at 1 pm.

Cannon firing can be booked as a surprise birthday gift and for anyone. Today a school student from Geraldton fired it in front of her 30 classmates, teachers and another 50 people, as the photo I took shows.

Everyone who fires the cannon receives a certificate. You can book it on the Roundhouse website, where the guides also take bookings for school visits, weddings on the lawn next to the Roundhouse, functions, etc.

The Roundhouse is open every day of the year but for Good Friday and Christmas Day from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm.

    Fantastic picture Roel – really captures the spirit of the 1.00pm cannon firing – not to mention the smoke. Perfect timing! Thank you 🙂
