What an absolutely lovely brilliant Christmas Carnival on Victoria Quay by Fremantle Port.

How nice to see so many children and adults have a real ball on the free rides. A delight to see so many smiling faces!

VQ Christmas Dec 7

 

It is a stinker of a Friday, not only very hot but also humid, but tomorrow will be much cooler and a good day to be out at Fremantle Port for the Victoria Quay CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL

Free rides for the kids, giant bubbles, lots of things to do, the Wasamba drummers and roving performers, and food stalls.

It is a free event on from 3-9pm.

VICTORIA QUAY CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL

 

VQ Christmas Dec 7

 

An early note that the Fremantle Ports Victoria Quay Christmas Carnival will be on this coming Saturday December 7.

The free fun is on from 3-9pm with free rides for the kids, food stalls to buy dinner from, port and sunset views, etc.  The perfect way to end a Saturday.

Kids will enjoy an Elf Show, skate workshops, face painting, giant bubbles and, of course, a visit from Santa himself, while big kids can grab a bite to eat from a selection of food trucks, browse market stalls, groove along to the sounds of WA Samba  and take in great roving performances ‑ all set against the stunning backdrop of the working port.

I’ll see you there!

LOOK OUT FOR FIRE ANTS IN FREMANTLE!

Fire Ants!

 

Fremantle residents are asked to look out for Fire Ants. Three nests of them were recently discovered oin the port area and they are a real pest with a nasty sting, so be aware and double check when you see ants.

Artists from the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale have been painting the town red, all the way from South Beach to Fremantle Port.

CY O’Connor is seeing red on Victoria Quay with the lawn below his statue all red and even a red pool ball put on his shoulder.

ARTY ANCHORS IN FREMANTLE PORT

 

 

I had an early morning stroll through Fremantle’s beautiful West End and the port and took some photos of these arty anchors, which are part of the Undercurrent Fremantle Biennale 2019.

PORT BIENNALE SIGNS OF OUR TIME

Posted in art, Fremantle Biennale, fremantle ports, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on November 8, 2019

 

 

I had a walk around Victoria Quay this morning to look at more of the Sam Bloor Billboard Project for the Fremantle Biennale 2019.

While there I bumped into my old mate John Malaga, the project supervisor of Fremantle Ports, who was watering the palm tree that is also part of the Biennale.

The container show is also on Victoria Quay and shows how much the containerisation of the ports changed the way we handle freight.

LOW SPEED HIGH STREET FREIGHT PROJECT

Posted in city of fremantle, containers, freight, fremantle ports, traffic, Uncategorized by freoview on November 6, 2019

 

 

The High Street Upgrade Project by Mainroads is going extremely slow.  I hear roadworks won’t be starting before February next year, so one has to wonder what is holding it up.

The City of Fremantle demolished the houses and FERN two months ago, so why is this important freight project not a priority for the State Government and a project that has to advance as fast as possible?

The proposed large roundabout at the Stirling Highway and High Street intersection is designed to allow trucks to go faster and to help speed up the freight trip to Fremantle Port, so why there is a five-month pause in the construction of it is questionable.
