  • We attended with around 30 people of varying ages between newborn and 87, for an 18th birthday breakfast in the grounds of the Fremantle Arts Centre. The tables were beautifully set with a lovely buff...  more »
  • Enjoyed visiting the centre with friends when there was an exhibition on. Lots to see and delicious food from the various venders who were present at the time! 
  • Unfortunately, we were not aware off what a great spot this was and only allowed 45 minutes before closing time. The art gallery was much more extensive than expected with a wonderful display of print...  more »

  • Concerts here are especially great but the art centre itself is a great building with lots to check out. Add it to your list when visiting Freo!
  • Fantastic night at Bernard Fanning concert. Amazing acoustics. Beautiful venue
  • Went to check out a surf exhibit. It was well put together and free :)
  • This place is just beautiful! The front courtyard and cafe is a wonderful place to sit and be inspired. The art gallery itself displays constantly changing exhibitions. Most are excellent, but you might be unlucky. The centre also plays host to a wide variety of free and not-so-free music concerts.
  • One of my favourite places in freo. Historical building. Always nice expo in there. Awesome in summer with the Sunday concerts and pizza.
