10 Great things to do in Fremantle this week in Life, Law & Culture
We've rounded up all the very best things happening in Fremantle this week.

Movie review – Breath

Even the numberplate on the VW Kombi Ute is spot on. Its UKP prefix is 1970s perfect. Just like the rest of the film. Congrats to Simon Baker, a first time director, for making such a well balanced and acted, and nuanced film, with his own performance as Sando, the ageless surfie, a standout.

A ‘Crowning Glory’ – The Mediterranean Shipping Company’s Tower Is Restored

On Friday 13, FSN was invited to the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) Head Office on the corner of Cliff and Phillimore Streets, Fremantle, to watch as the final piece of its redevelopment was added. Following a massive redevelopment over a period of 5-6 years, which included a heritage restoration and a striking modern addition, workers delivered the crowning element as the six metre tall ‘cupola’ was hoisted to sit atop the rooftop dome. Roads were closed and bystanders held their collective breath as the large crane lifted the restored cupola on to the top of the dome. It was fascinating…
