The Under The Bridge Foodtrucks organisers came up with the Trumpish slogan Make Mondays Great Again, so I am stealing it from them.
It’s on again today from 5-8.30 pm at the Fremantle East Street Jetty and a lot of fun. It’s also a great spot to watch the sun set behind the port, fall in love, network, meet new friends, take the dog for a walk, or have a quick swim in the Swan River.
The Under The Bridge food van market at the Fremantle East Street jetty has become very popular with hundreds of people sitting at the Swan river watching the sun set behind the port and enjoying great food.
It is on every Monday in summer from 5 to 8.30 pm, so go and check it out next week!
Photography is soul music for me. Whenever I feel a bit down I go out and try to find good images. Taking creative photos makes me happy.
I took this one at the Fremantle East Street jetty today just before 7 pm.
It’s a beautiful day in Fremantle yet again, so why not enjoy the sunset at the Under The Bridge Food Trucks at the East Street jetty this evening and watch the sun set behind the port.
Five trucks will offer a variety of international food to choose from and you can even throw in a line and catch some fish while there.
It’s on from 5-9 pm, so head out to the Swan River!
The WA government is spending another $ 3 million on strengthening the Fremantle traffic bridge after it completed the fender system upgrade earlier this year.
Advanteering Civil Engineers has the contract to use specialist divers to repair and strengthen the 100 pilons under water. The work should be completed by May next year.
Nearly one hundred people attended the information session about development plans for the East Fremantle Leeuwin Barracks at the East Freo Tennis Club on Tuesday evening.
The event was organised by the Labor candidate for Bicton Lisa O’Malley and chaired by Member for Fremantle Simone McGurk. WA Labor leader Mark McGowan and Federal Member for Fremantle Josh Wilson were also present.
The Leeuwin residential development at the Swan river is probably the most significant modern development for the Town of East Fremantle, so community input is essential as the site if developed well could become the jewel in the crown for East Freo.
Lisa O’Malley said it was important to bring local, state and federal representatives together to complement the visioning process the Town of East Fremantle is conducting with the community and stakeholders.
Mark McGowan said he knew the site very well from his days as a Navy Officer and commented on the thoughtful contributions from the public gallery.
Josh Wilson said he has been talking to the Federal Defence Minister’s office about the significance of the project for East Fremantle and beyond and mentioned the very positive outcome negotiations had achieved with Cantonment Hill.
Height, density and traffic issues were the main concerns raised by residents and suggestions made to acknowledge the plight of veterans and create open spaces for seniors and youth at this prime location.
You don’t have to go far in Fremantle to feel you are on holiday, as I again discovered at the North Fremantle foreshore this morning.
It is the kind of morning normal people refer to as bloody cold, and only those eternally optimistic glass is half full people call it invigorating, so I decided a change in routine would be good, after the routinely morning coffee and newspaper in a West End cafe, and had a stroll along the north bank of the Swan river.
There were quite a few people out and about walking dogs and the only negative up that way is the constant noise of cars on the bridges.
Here some impressions. Enjoy the long weekend!
The Under The Bridge food truck sunset fiesta will return on Mondays throughout summer at the East Street jetty between the Fremantle bridges.
Five trucks will be at the Swan River from 5-9 pm, so come and enjoy the international food by Eat No Evil, Flying Falafels, Comida do Sul and others.
It’s a nice location to watch the sunset over the port, so come along! It starts tomorrow September 12!
I took advantage of the beautiful sunny Monday morning and went for a nice walk from Rule Street in North Fremantle to Mosman Park along the lovely path above the Swan River.
It is a great walk to also learn about nature and history while exercising at there are a lot of information signs.
I found out about the State Implement and Engineering Works that used to be there, that held the patent for the revolutionary stump jump plough. It also produced the keel of Australia II that won the America’s Cup in 1983.
The first WA land grand was given along the path in 1839 to the ‘Billy Goat Farm’ and there was a limestone quarry and Colonial Sugar.
The Wadjuk Noongar people used the area for camping and fishing and tools were found at Minim Cove that date back 9,930 years. The local indigenous people knew that when the paper bark flowered the mullet would run, so a great spot for fishing.
I walked for just a bit over an hour, but one can venture further into Mosman Park. Great views back to Fremantle and some interesting and very expensive houses north of the path.
There is a good car parking spot at the end of Rule Street, or take the train to North Fremantle, or hop on your bike.
