Freo's new Pop Up Café and Bar Scene

Where would you go to find Australia's hipster paradise? Most of you would say Melbourne, but the truly bohemian person would know of a place much closer to home. Fremantle is known for its beautiful architecture, picturesque views of the ocean and delicious dining experiences. The best part? Fremantle is always changing, hosting WA's most diverse range of pop up experiences.

Thanks to Fremantle, you can:

Sink your teeth into Fremantle food

Cool off from the sweltering WA climate in Fremantle. A cool sea breeze in most parts of the town ushers you along the cobble-stoned alleys and into boutique stores for cold treats of homemade gelato and local beers. If you’re only going to try one thing in Fremantle, it has the be the muffle, a waffle wrapped around ice cream, which is bound to stop the heatwave from getting to you.

No visit to Fremantle is complete without a visit to the Fremantle Markets (open Friday - Sunday). This is where Perth's cultural diversity is on full display and there are ample pop up food stands to choose from. Try a gourmet German hot dog or a mouth watering southern style chicken burger. Eat your fill and make the most of your weekend in this charming port town, with a wonderfully mysterious history.

Those looking for a more substantial meal will be easily pleased with cool new faces such as the Mantle, The Raw Kitchen and May Street Larger to the good ol’ favourites like Char Char Bull, Cicerello's Fish and Chips and Pizza Bella Roma.
