The winter location for the Food Trucks Under The Bridge is at B Shed on Victoria Quay and it is on tonight and every Monday from 5-8pm.

It is a lovely spot to watch the sun set and see ships arriving and departing from Fremantle Port, so take the family or just yourself and enjoy a good meal from some of our best food trucks.

Under The Bridge

 

The very popular Under The Bridge Food Trucks event will be held for the first time tonight inside B Shed on Fremantle’s Victoria Quay for the start of the winter season.

Great food in a great setting with live music, harbour and sunset views, so what better way to spend the last hours of the long WA Day weekend. It is on from 5-8pm.

We’ve got @eatnoevil1, @piadina_nonna_pina, @juicepalacefremantle and @stampede_gelato PLUS live music!

WINTER IN PORT FOR UNDER THE BRIDGE FOOD TRUCKS

Posted in city of fremantle, food, fremantle ports, Uncategorized by freoview on May 28, 2019

 

Under the Bridge June 3

 

Good to see that Under The Bridge Food Trucks took up my suggestion when they asked on Facebook for a winter location for the popular Monday event.

I suggested B Shed on Victoria Quay as I know Fremantle Ports is keen to activate VQ more, and the two parties reached an agreement.

From coming Monday June 3 on the Under the Bridge Food Trucks will be in B Shed straight on the wharf from 5-8pm where they offer delightful meals, live music, great sunsets and port activities, so go and check it out on the long WA Day weekend!

It is on throughout winter at B Shed till August 19  and after that it will return in summer to the East Street jetty

FREO’S FANTASTIC WORKING PORT

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, maritime, Uncategorized by freoview on May 19, 2019

 

 

I love all the activity in Fremantle Port and yesterday it was a busy Saturday with two live trade ship at berth, a container ship leaving and another one arriving, while on Victoria Quay was a display of vintage cars, motorcycles and buses.

I took photos of the container ship CMA CGM Rossini leaving port and half an hour later of the Al Rawdah arriving.

While waiting I took photos of a Heron sun baking on one of the old cranes, a tiny inflatable keeping well out of the way of a huge freighter, and of a mum and daughter watching daddy fishing.

I love Freo’s working port so I hope it will remain just that for the last years of my life.

HAZY FREMANTLE MORNING

It’s a bit of a hazy morning in good old Freo so the perfect location to take some photos of the fog is Fremantle Port of course.

FREO WELCOMES MASSIVE MAGNIFICA

I almost missed the maiden arrival to Fremantle Port of the huge MSC Magnifica cruiseliner because it was initially scheduled to arrive tomorrow. But I was lucky to walk at Bathers Beach when I noticed the massive vessel gliding into port, so I went on a long walk to take photos from all different angles.

The Musica-class MSC Magnifica is 294-metres long and normally carries up to 2,550 passengers, but can accommodate a maximum of 3,605 passengers. It cost $ 547 million to build.

It will depart Fremantle tomorrow evening at 10pm if all goes to plans.

TWO JEWELS EQUAL GREAT FREMANTLE PORT

It is always an impressive sight to see large cruiseliners enter and depart Fremantle Port and float past the equally impressive Maritime Museum, so I took this photo of the Pacific Jewel leaving Freo just after 4pm on Friday afternoon.

A LOVELY FREO WAY TO END THE WEEKEND

The Merchants’ Mess Food Truck Markets on Fremantle’s Victoria Quay is a nice way to activate the area on a Sunday afternoon and  early evening.

Good food, mellow music, ships entering and leaving the port, the Rottnest Island ferries dropping off and picking up passengers, and the sun setting behind the port is a lovely way to end the weekend.

There is a very big Portside Traders Markets coming up on Saturday March 16 from 10am-4pm, so make a note of it!

ONE DEAD AFTER CAR DRIVES OFF FREMANTLE’S SOUTH MOLE

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, fremantle ports, Uncategorized by freoview on January 29, 2019

 

The body of a 75 year-old woman was recovered late yesterday off the Fremantle South Mole after the Mitsubishi Magna she and her husband were in drove off the South Mole. The 81 year-old husband managed to swim to safety.

The tragic accident happened around 7pm yesterday, and one has to wonder how, as the road on the mole is surrounded by large rocks.

Access to the South Mole was closed early this morning as the police are investigating and asking any witnesses who saw the car before the accident to come forward.

It had been surprisingly cool after the hot weekend, with the strong sea breeze creating quite a chill when one walks around.

I took a few Fremantle Port photos around 1pm on Wednesday while I was almost being blown off the South Mole.

It was a rare sight to see the tugs ‘dancing’ bow to bow.
