Positive ageing

The City of Fremantle offers many opportunities to have fun, stay fit and meet new people.

Wanjoo Welcome Lounge

Located at the library at Fremantle Oval, Wanjoo Welcome Lounge is a community space for people over the age of 55 years. It is run by volunteers and is opened Monday to Friday, 9am – 3pm.

The space has a courtyard equipped with BBQ, a large kitchen and new comfortable leather lounges. You can have a cuppa, read the daily newspaper, have a chat with other visitors, or access all the library services such as computers, books and magazines.
