#MyFreoStory is your Freo story

We all have a Freo story. From the locals raised in the port city, to the live music lovers or Sunday brunch devotees on the strip, locals and visitors alike have a story to share about Freo. And so #MyFreoStory video competition was born. In early 2016, the #MyFreoStory competition was launched to encourage people to tell their own Freo story, with 40 very unique and heartfelt videos submitted. This included a day in the life of local Freo dog, following a unicyclist’s journey around town to the home of WA Circus, watching a time-lapse artist weave a large red basket around themselves in prominent Fremantle landmarks and Freo-inspired sea shanty “Fremantle, The Pride of WA”.  After much deliberation, 9 entries were shortlisted to determine the overall winner, Shakey’s Story. The first #MyFreoStory winning entry by Oliver Oldroyd and Stevie James Smith depicted the moving true story of a local artist and his strong connection to the Freo art scene and local music legend Bon Scott. We asked the producer Oliver Oldroyd what motivated him and his cousin to enter “We love living here in Freo. There's such a good creative vibe and it's great to be part of it. We love making films and it was also important for us to get Shakey’s name out there and get him recognised for the talented artist he is.” Another entry by a 16 year old student from Perth Modern School, Radheya Jegatheva was “My Journey Through Freo”, voted on the youtube.com/fremantlestory as the best film in our people’s choice category. This young film maker gave us a view of all the things he loves in Freo by filming on his mum’s iPhone. We asked Radheya what motivated him to enter “A bit of everything to be honest, but one of the main messages that I wanted to convey through my video was that Freo is a city that can cater for all sorts of people of all ages - and that there was so much to do and so much to see.” After viewing all of last year’s great films we couldn’t get enough, so in late March we launched the second 2017 #MyFreoStory video competition and are waiting in anticipation for the new stories. If you want to check out last year’s films or submit your own #MyFreoStory video visit fremantlestory.com.au/myfreostory. Competition closes 22 May 2017.

Fremantle's top 10 free school holiday activities

Sharpen the kids’ word sleuth skills with the #Freo_Babble hunt, visit the museums, hire a bike - here's our top ten free things to do with the kids. 1. Transportation Exhibition at Fremantle Prison In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Hougoumont, the last convict ship to arrive in Australia, Fremantle Prison’s new exhibition Transportation examines the forced migration of convicts from Britain to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries. 2. #Freo_Babble letter sleuth game Pick up a #Freo_Babble map from Fremantle Visitor Centre, WA Shipwrecks Museum or Oxfam or download and collect the letters from Freo businesses to make out the mystery song title. You could win fabulous prizes including a $500 shopping spree. 3. Visit the shipwrecks at WA Shipwrecks Museum Recognised as the foremost maritime archaeology museum in the southern hemisphere and housed in a 1850s-era Commissariat building the galleries house hundreds of relics from ships wrecked along WA's treacherous coastline, including the original timbers from the Batavia (wrecked in 1629), the de Vlamingh plate, and also countless artefacts from the Dutch shipwrecks Zuytdorp, Zeewijk and Vergulde Draeck. 4. Free bike hire from Fremantle Visitor Centre This free bike hire service with bikes for adults and kids (8+ years) operates from the Fremantle Visitor Centre in Kings Square. Bikes can be used anywhere in the Fremantle area. There are a limited number of bikes available for hire so arrive early to avoid disappointment. Read our South Beach to Leighton cycling blog for bike ride ideas. 5. Take a spin at the Esplanade Youth Plaza Pack up the kid’s skateboards, scooters or roller skates and spend an afternoon at one of the most popular skate facilities in the metro area. There’s also places to try ping pong, rock climbing, slack-lining and parkour and the playground adjacent to the plaza has swings and a giant climbing frame. Bring a picnic or grab a bite to eat from nearby cafés and restaurants all within walking distance. 6. Firing of the cannon at the Round House Opened in 1831, Round House is the oldest public building in Western Australia. Hear the story of why the cannon is fired every day at 1 pm – visitors can even apply to act as the honorary gunner! 7. Self-guided walking trails Explore Fremantle attractions, history, cultural heritage and the arts with one of the Explore Fremantle walking trails. There are eleven trails to choose from including street art, Walk with the Windsors, heritage highlights and Manjaree. The trails work on iPhone and Android devices (you can connect to FREBytes free wifi in the CBD). 8. Visit the giant fish tanks at Cicerello’s Over 50 species of marine life, all collected in Fremantle waters housed in a giant aquarium holding over 20,000 litres of water. 9. Bird watching around Fremantle Get to know the species of birdlife around Freo. Download a copy of the Birdwatching around Fremantle guide and challenge the kids to spot an Australasian darter or a Wilson’s Storm Petrel. 10. Swan River, beaches, parks and playgrounds Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that create the best memories and Fremantle has amazing outdoor spaces for the kids to run around... skimming stones under the traffic bridge, collecting shells at South Beach or a picnic beside the lake at Booyeembara Park, here's some of the best spots. After you’ve exhausted the kids there are plenty of kid friendly places to pick up lunch or a drink (the nature play area behind Moore & Moore and Paper Bird Children's Books and Arts is a favourite). Our school holiday program has some great coupon offers from local businesses and don’t forget to tag @fremantlestory on Instagram–we’d love to see what you get up to.
