OCT 20 Swan Hotel music

If you feel like a bit of music and a dance on this hot Friday why not head out to the Swan Hotel at the old traffic bridge in North Freo.

For just $ 10.00 you can enjoy the sounds of Harvest Rd, Dawesville Cut, Mossy Fogg and Billie Rogers.

CUTE NORTH FREMANTLE HUB

Posted in city of fremantle, community, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on October 20, 2017

 

 

I really like the little North Fremantle hub where Mojo’s, the Propeller, Mrs Brown, Flipside, Habitue, etc. are, so when I went to photograph the demolition of the large fuel tanks in the area I also took a few shots in the centre of town.

NORTH FREO TANKS DEMOLISHED

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, Uncategorized by freoview on October 18, 2017

 

 

Many of the big fuel tanks in North Fremantle are being demolished to free up land there, but I am not aware what the plans for the area are, so would appreciate if anyone who knows could let us know.

Is it for port business, or for residential development?

NORTH FREO SECESSION FROM FREO?

Posted in city of fremantle, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on September 22, 2017

 

The Town of Mosman Park council has expressed in principle support for a change in boundaries for the secession of the entire North Fremantle area from Fremantle.

The Minister for Local Government rejected the call of North Freo residents who wanted to merge with Mosman Park, but apparently there are now even more residents who want to move to the northern neighbours.

NORTH FREO NEW COUNCIL CHAMBERS

Posted in city of fremantle, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on September 11, 2017

 

North Freo residents often feel neglected, and some of them even wanted to migrate to Mosman Park, so they will be delighted that Fremantle Council is now making their patch of the world the engine room of the city for the next two years.

North Fremantle will become the centre of the-council decision-making-universe during the construction of the new Kings Square Civic Centre.

Council meetings will be held from January next year in the North Fremantle Community Centre next to the North Freo bowling club.

It is such a delight to find a community garden in an urban environment, as is the case in North Fremantle.

The garden, together with a few scarecrows, is next to the North Fremantle Bowling Club, so go and have a look one day.

There are some great cafes and restaurants in the lovely North Freo hub, so go north across the bridges this weekend for breakfast!

NORTH FREO STORM WALL COLLAPSE

A woman was seriously injured in North Fremantle this afternoon when part of a wall at the Matilda Bay Brewery collapsed on top of her car, that was parked to the side of the building in Coventry Parade.

It appears the strong wind caused the brick rubble to fell down from the three-storey building at Stirling Highway.

Emergency services attended the scene and there are concerns that more of the wall might collapse.

QUIRKY NORTH FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on May 30, 2017

 

 

North Fremantle people will tell you that they are even more unique than the rest of Freo and looking at the lovely little hub there one has to agree with them.

Even parking is special in North Freo with the City creating parking bays that are partly on the road and partly on the footpath.

There are some quirky mural artworks and brilliant restaurants such as Habitue¬†and Propeller, and the famous Mojo’s music venue, plus cafes, Mrs Brown and Flipside burgers.

Change your routine now and then and instead of going to the Freo CBD or South Freo, go and support the North Freo traders!

BUSH FIRE VOLUNTEERS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Posted in fire, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on April 15, 2017

 

The 114th WA Volunteer Fire Rescue Services Easter Championships are being held this weekend at the Gilbert Fraser reserve in North Fremantle. Go and have a look at it from 9am this easter Sunday morning. It’s fun to watch!

Bush firies from as far away as Port Hedland, Esperance and even Victoria are taking part and they deserve recognition and support for their tireless work to protect their communities.

The event has been held at the North Freo oval for over 40 years but I was not aware of it until I read a tiny one line somewhere on Thursday.

It needs to get a lot better promotion so that the local community comes out in droves to watch it. It’s rather pathetic that just under 100 spectators attend the events and they were family and a few supporters.
