My Freo view…

My good friend and colleague, Roel Loopers, regularly documents his love of Fremantle through his blog Freo’s View.

Inspired by his devotion to that beautiful city and also by a long and very fine lunch with him and some friends at ECCO a couple of weeks ago, I wandered around the city for a few hours to put together my view of his home town. Here’s my perspective of the place affectionately called Freo. If this modest taste of Fremantle intrigues you, and you want more, you can see Roel’s take on the city and its vibrant life here.

  1. With apologies for stepping on your patch, Roel, but you’re welcome to reciprocate in Van Diemens Land anytime…

  2. Rob, I reallt enjoyed the ‘slice of life’ you present in these photos – a glimpse into the heart of a people and place I’ve never been. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Len but it’s a pretty thin thin slice, of what Fremantle is all about…a few hours only. If you go to Roel Looper’s site you get a much more in-deptth view of that marvellous port city. Will post more pictures for the far west of the continent during the holidays. All the best for the festive season…
