Fremantle Ports Maritime Day 2017

There’s less than a weeks to go until the annual Fremantle Ports Maritime Day for 2017!

Held at Victoria Quay, Fremantle, this fun filled day should be placed on all families calendars – and circled, twice.

There will be action not only throughout Victoria Quay, but also inside the historic B shed and even in the water!

Fun activities, features and exhibitions are listed as follows:

  • The Royal Australian Navy will have extensive shore displays and a submarine HMAS Waller quayside.
  • Other vessels along side will include the refuelling ship Vacamonte, Svitzer and TAMS Group tugs, a river dredging barge, STS Leeuwin and Fremantle Ports’ emergency response boat.  
  • Maritime dress up: Children are encouraged to enjoy the day by dressing in a maritime theme – anything nautical, for example a pirate, a mermaid or a sailor. There will be a children’s fancy dress parade.
  • Entry by gold coin donation to the Western Australian Maritime Museum for the day including Roman-themed activities involving craft and digital animation.
  • Free boat rides (above) on the harbour will be on offer, courtesy of South Metropolitan TAFE
  • Australian Border Force will have a detained goods display along with detector dogs.
  • Vintage cars and hot rods
  • Department of Transport marine safety

This event has a huge emphasis on information all about Fremantle Ports, the maritime industry and maritime careers.
