Port movies

 

School holidays are almost over, but there is still plenty to do for the children, such as the great Victoria Quay Movie Marathon by Fremantle Ports.

It is on every night this week and the movies start at 7pm, doors open at 6pm.

The movies are FREE and so are the bean bags for the first 50 arrivals, plus there is free popcorn and icecream.

It is in B Shed where the Rottnest Island ferry terminal is and there is heaps of parking at Victoria Quay.

Have fun!

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!

CALL FOR BETTER VQ FISHING BOAT HARBOUR CONNECTION

Posted in city of fremantle, city planning, development, local government, tourism, Uncategorized, youth by freoview on November 27, 2019

 

There is an interesting opinion piece by URBIS director Kris Nolan in today’s West Australian.

Nolan writes that Fremantle Council is on the right track with its push for more inner city development, but he laments, like so many of us have done for years, the missing connectivity between Victoria Quay and the Fishing Boat Harbour.

I am one of many in the Freo community who does not understand that that link is not a priority for Fremantle Council, that constantly talks about the need for more activation of the West End.

Nolan also points out that there is a lack of young people in the CBD and that Council should address that, which it has to a certain degree with the planned stunning new playground at Kings Square. One should also not underestimate the impact the closure of Hungry Jacks on the Cappuccino Strip has, that attracted a lot of young people.

So what would Fremantle’s Youth Council like to see in the inner city?

BEAUTIFUL MORNING AT FREMANTLE PORT

As everyone who reads Freo’s View should know by now I absolutely love the working Fremantle Port, so when I got there this morning for my Saturday morning coffee with my mate Henty at the Express Cafe at B Shed I just had to take photos of the departing container ship just before 7am.

There were heaps of young people on their way to Rottnest Island which always makes me feel I am on holiday.

A SHED PORT DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY

 

 

Fremantle Ports is looking for Expressions of Interest to develop historic A Shed, which is next door to the very popular Maritime Museum on Victoria Quay.

A Shed offers a great location in Fremantle with stunning sunsets and harbour views and all the excitement that comes with an active working port.

If they want a retired photographer in residence I’ll put my hand up and volunteer to live there till I move to Fremantle cemetery  ; >)

FREMANTLE PORTS WANT A SHED ACTIVATION

Fremantle Ports is looking for Expressions of Interest for the redevelopment of historic A Shed on Victoria Quay.

The 2,225 sqm building is the closest one to the very popular Maritime Museum and a short walk to the B Shed Rottnest Island ferry terminal, so perfect for tourist and leisure orientated development.

I am really happy that Fremantle Port finally wants to reactivate A Shed as it has been forlorn and neglected for far too long.

EOI close on November 29 so don’t miss out to make A Shed great again.
