The Fremantle Heritage Festival celebrates Fremantle's rich cultural heritage in ways you won't believe! There is something for everyone in this festival - from choral singing to rock shows and from old school motorcycles to fine red wine. The Heritage Festival explores Freo from its indigenous roots to the diverse culture we all enjoy today. Remember the Orange people? And it's close to 30 years since the Americas Cup was in Fremantle! A lot has changed, a lot has happened. There are many stories to tell. So it's time to take a broader look at our Heritage old and not so old.

When Gino Saccone (1937-2001) got fed up with the poor coffee on offer, he closed down his men's wear shop and opened Gino's Trattoria in 1983. Since that time and through the heady days of the America's Cup, many cafes have come and gone but one constant has been Gino's on the corner of Market Street and South Terrace, the gateway to Fremantle's famous Cappucino Strip. Why has Gino's lasted where so many others have failed? There are a number of factors - but the biggest one is consistently good coffee that is consistently well made. It all starts with the coffee. Through many years of trial and error in blending and sourcing beans, Gino's now produces it own custom blend of coffees. It is selected from the finest beans on offer and blended to produce a consistently good coffee.
Indigenous artists Sarrita and Tarisse King bring exciting new developments to their much-loved paintings in their latest exhibition at Japingka. Their intricately detailed works, created with layers of infinitesimal dotting and subtle shifts of shimmering colour, weave stories of their ancestors and the land they enlivened. The artists depict the elements vital to life – fire, water, lightning – evoking the drama of each element’s attributes and contribution to survival. In her Ancestor series, in which a myriad of underlying dots represent her ancestors stretching back through the millennia, Sarrita focuses on waterholes and the underground watercourses which resurface to sustain life. Tarisse, with equal finesse, paints the salt lakes of central Australia, fire, water and patterns of the earth. The King Sisters are exhibiting at Japingka Gallery from 8 April to 30 May.
