KWINANA PORT FORUM ON TODAY

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, Uncategorized by freoview on November 20, 2017

 

There is a forum on the planning of a Kwinana Port TODAY, November 20 at Victoria Hall in Fremantle. It is on from 7pm-9.30pm.

The Kwinana Outer Harbour has been in the pipeline for over twenty years and was the solution to freight hitting Fremantle long before the Perth Freight Link was dreamed up. The new Westport Task Force was recently formed by the State Government to finally make it a reality.

Nicole Lockwood, Chair of Westport will talk of her plans,  and Fremantle Mayor Dr Brad Pettitt will speak on the opportunities this opens up for Fremantle.

Infrastructure adviser Cameron Edwards will speak on why a Kwinana port will lead to jobs growth and massive economic potential for WA, Professor Philip Jennings on the environmental considerations, and Professor Peter Newman on transport planning and why this all makes sense.

A Q&A will follow presentations.

The Western Harbours Alliance purpose is to help establish new partnerships between community, government and business to create the opportunities and overcome the barriers to building a new 21st century port in the Perth Metropolitan Region, bringing great economic, employment and social benefits for the people of Western Australia. WHA is a member of the Westport Reference Group.

THE FREMANTLE SOUTH QUOKKAMOLE

South Mole

 

Life is far too often too serious, and this has been a shit year for me, so the best escape is having a laugh now and then.

After seeing yet another smashed avocado dish on a Freo cafe menu, I had the idea of making the entrance to Fremantle Port a bit more catchy, and that spicy avocado dip guacamole inspired me.

Since the Rottnest Island ferries are steady visitors to Fremantle Port we should rename the moles to South Quokkamole and North Quaokkamole.

It could even become an avocado dish on the island in one of its cafes. :>)

maritime sunset

 

During the summer months the setting sun creates beautiful warm colours on the walls of A and B Shed on Victoria Quay in Fremantle Port.

I love the intensity of the reflecting light and took this photo yesterday around 6.30pm.

FREMANTLE MARITIME TODAY!

Posted in city of fremantle, fremantle ports, maritime, Uncategorized by freoview on November 4, 2017

 

Maritime Day

 

The annual Fremantle Port Maritime Day is on today from 10am to 4pm so make it a family day out in good old Freo!

This is a great event for children as they can visit a tugboat, see a submarine close up, enjoy navy displays, free harbour ride, food, music, entertainment, etc.

One can also visit the Maritime Museum for only a gold coin donation, so that is a substantial saving!

And while at Victoria Quay wander down to the West End to take in the public art of High Tide of the Fremantle Festival.

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?
