The Box That Changed The World – The Cool Container Combo

Forgive our weak effort at alliterating to snatch your attention. But there is something you need to see! There is a free outdoor exhibition running until April 2020 at the Maritime Museum, Fremantle. It really is worth getting along to discover how the humble shipping container has revolutionised the way we live! You get to learn about shipping, ports, cargo, the impact of containerisation on the ocean, the origins of everyday objects and even container architecture. We most of all liked the container showing architecture, how the container has been converted into liveable, usable - even attractive - human spaces.…

Freo has its own coffee culture. No doubt about it. See our recent story and interview with Ollie here. One question lingers, with the coffee flavours, though - How sustainable is our coffee culture? The piece that follows asks and seeks to answer precisely that question. It’s a good read. Carbon cafe: what is the most sustainable coffee order?

Coffee Culture – Freo Style

Now, I know this is dangerous territory to enter upon, that is, defining, or attempting to define, Fremantle’s coffee culture. Old Papa’s and Papa Luigi’s - gone but not forgotten - are usually credited with getting coffee into our blood. Gino’s, is also right up there. But, as I can attest from my fieldwork, it doesn’t much matter where you start your research around Freo - at the beginning of High Street, near the Roundhouse; all the way through the Cappuccino Strip; onwards along South Terrace past Wray Avenue; or winding up on the strip between South Street and Douro…
