The Fremantle Story Magazine | Summer 2017-18

Fremantle in summer–it’s where memories are made! Maybe it’s during a family day out, paddling the tunnels beneath the Fremantle Prison or splashing about at Bathers Beach. Perhaps it’s when canvassing the ice cream options around town, trying to choose between a gelato sandwich and a muffle.

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.

Wildlife Zoo at the Markets

We love having West Oz Wildlife, one of Perth’s leading wildlife petting zoos, at Fremantle Markets.
