Continuing Culture

Evidence continues to surface demonstrating that Aboriginal culture is well over 65000 years old . A constant in Aboriginal culture is the ancestral story telling that imparts knowledge not just about country and mapping, but includes law which instils a sense of place and identity.   This exhibition is a bold and colourful depiction of these stories from remote community art centres including om the very heart of the beginning of the contemporary Aboriginal art movement Papunya, Haasts Bluff, Balgo and the APY (Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara) lands.  

Reform The History of Reformative Measures

Prisons serve four main functions in society. They punish offenders, protect the community from criminals, act as a disincentive to people considering crime and provide prisoners the opportunity to reform before their release back into the community. The exhibition Reform: A History of Reformative Measures at Fremantle Prison explores what strategies were employed at Fremantle Prison to control and change prisoner behaviour. While Fremantle Prison was at times a place of harsh punishment, it also provided prisoners with the opportunity to acquire new skills and reform. The exhibition explores the practice of religion, education, work and training at Fremantle Prison through its 136 years of operational history. A number of original documents, artworks and objects from the Fremantle Prison Collection illustrate this reformative process.

Brewery Tours at Little Creatures

One shared belief when Little Creatures was just a twinkle in our eyes was that breweries over the years have hardly been the most romantic of places. Hidden behind big brick walls and imposing gates, very little was visible to the passing community. It is our ambition to change all that, to become an open and transparent Brewery that welcomes all walks of life to experience the wonder of brewing. Come on down, say hi and explore our little piece of brewing happiness. Not sure what style of beer is for you? Want to learn about all things brewing along with the Little Creatures story? Brewery Tours with one of our resident hop heads include learning about all the great ingredients we use and the brewing process, along with a guided tasting of all of our beers and ciders. Tours run daily at 12, 1, 2 and 3pm.  To join, head on into the Brewhouse (located directly inside our brewery) before we start and sign up. Must be 18yo to join a brewery tour. We also offer free bike hire. Grab a bike for the day and explore our community. The Brewhouse is also the place to grab some crafty gear and pick up a six-pack of your favourite beer. There's a great outdoor area and since we welcome all walks of life, feel free to bring your pooch down too.

Wildlife Zoo at the Markets

We love having West Oz Wildlife, one of Perth’s leading wildlife petting zoos, at Fremantle Markets. They provide a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with native Australian animals such as koalas, snakes & dingoes. You can usually only glimpse such animals amidst big crowds in larger reserves or zoos. Our Wildlife Zoo offers a more intimate approach, allowing both children and adults to experience these animals in a smaller and more relaxed setting. Entry by Gold Coin Donation. Don't forget your camera!
