Some of the artworks of the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale are still standing, and this one is on the boardwalk at the Fishing Boat Harbour. The distorted reflection makes the back of Little Creatures look more like the Sydney Opera House.

There is not a lot of good Christmas decoration in Fremantle so Cicerello’s in the Fishing Boat Harbour deserves credit for this great display.

The thousands of little lights moving in the breeze look stunning, so take your children for a stroll one evening from about 7.30pm.

caught!

Two rather different photos of J Shed sculptor Greg James‘ artwork in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour. Workers who are repairing the jetty have caught one of the bronze fisherman, while the Bathers Beach House looks different when taken through the massive legs of the big sentinel.

The stolen Bella sculpture by Greg James still has not been found.

FROM SWEETLIPS TO TWIN FIN FISH&CHIPS

Twin Fin

 

A new Fish&Chips outlet has opened at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach. TWIN FIN has taken over the site where Sweetlips used to be, so make sure to give it a try and support a new small business in town.

BLESSING OF THE FLEET TODAY!

The Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour was packed full at lunch time on Saturday so I ended up having fish&chips at Joe’s Fish Shack for the first time and it was very good.

On Sunday the annual Blessing of the Fleet will parade through the inner city to the Fishing Boat Harbour from 2pm, so I expect big crowds in town.

If you have never watched the Blessing come and see it. It is impressive and a lovely tradition.

FISHING BOAT HARBOUR WORK BAD TIMING

Now that the weather is warming up and tourists are coming back to Fremantle it seems to be strange planning by the Marine&Harbours department to start work on the Fishing Boat Harbour boardwalk in front of Joe’s Fishshack.

The first cruiseship  will be arriving on October 20, so let’s hope the maintenance work does not take months to complete.

FACELIFTS AT THE FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

The refurbishment of the Kailis Fish Cafe in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour have been completed and the popular fish&chips destination is open to the public again, with a raw fish bar added.

Down the road the sterile HELM bar at Little Creatures has been gutted and the old Harbourside bar has been brought back with cosy launches and armchairs. I much prefer it that way!
