Interview with Danicia Quinlan CEO at FCC

Well there’s a few acronyms for you! Danicia Quinlan is the Chief Executive Officer at the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce. Danicia has been at the FCC for only 9 months, but the FCC has been in existence since 1873. And it’s been in its fabulous heritage building (ignoring the not-so-fab 1950s addition at the back!) at 16 Phillimore Street, Fremantle - next to the Fire Station - since 1912. The history of the Chamber’s heritage building can be found here at https://fremantlestuff.info/organisations/commerce.html The founding group of merchants and traders included W. D.

Book Review – Red Can Origami

I was really intrigued to read Madelaine Dickie’s latest novel, Red Can Origami - just published by Fremantle Press in time for Christmas - as soon as it arrived on my desk. The reason was that the words in the title - ‘Red Can’, suggesting what is sometimes to be found in Australia’s outback, and ‘Origami’, a Japanese paper art - and the blurb on the back cover, suggested to me a plot line involving an unusual confluence of the cultures of mainstream Australia, Aboriginal Australia, and Japan. Very little has been written in fictional form, until very recent times, about…

Harbour Hassles; Nothing New – The Great Port Debate continues

So, ‘Yes, it should stay where it is in the Inner Harbour’, or ‘No, it should be somewhere south, like Kwinana’, are common responses. And there are today many strands to the debate. This is not a new debate, however. When you dig around a little, you discover we have been contending over the best Freo harbour location for most of the years since Lieutenant Governor James Stirling raised the Union Jack on Rous Head on 2 June 1829 and proclaimed Whadjuk…
