(1/8/2019) Enjoy a night out in Freo on us

The City of Fremantle is offering the chance to win a gourmet night out in Freo as part of the City’s latest destination marketing campaign.

The #freofoodie competition can be entered by simply spending $20 or more at any participating Freo café, bar, restaurant or pub, during the month of August for a chance to win a $500 voucher to spend on a #freofoodie feast.

Look out for the #freofoodie map in participating venues and ask for your unique codeword to enter online on the Freofoodie page of the visitfremantle.com website.

Two lucky winners will be drawn every Monday from 5 August to 2 September, with a total $5000 worth of prizes to be won.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt said with its outstanding selection of restaurants, bars, pubs and cafes, there was no better place for a winter foodie feast than Fremantle.

“Fremantle is already Perth’s favourite entertainment precinct and there are exciting new hospitality venues opening up all the time,” Mayor Pettitt said.

“Whether it’s brunch and a coffee at a cosy café, a steaming bowl of ramen from a street side food hall or Nonna’s pasta special and a glass of red wine on the café strip, Freo really does have something for everyone. You can even make a weekend of it and stay at one of our many modern and boutique hotels.”

To accompany the #freofoodie competition the City of Fremantle has also produced a series of videos featuring chefs from some of Freo’s top restaurants including Bread in Common, Manuka Woodfire Kitchen, Propeller and Madalena’s bar - which has just been nominated for Gourmet Traveller’s ‘best new restaurant of the year’ award.

The #freofoodie promotion is the latest campaign to be rolled out by the City of Fremantle as part of our Destination Marketing Strategic Plan and the ‘This is Fremantle’ brand. It aims to generate visitation to Fremantle during one of the quietest off-peak months of the year.

This latest campaign will utilise digital and radio platforms to raise awareness of Fremantle as a winter dining destination and guide visitors to the visitfremantle.com website and social media channels.

The radio component of the campaign will be delivered via Nova 93.7. It follows two campaigns delivered earlier in the year that generated over half a million video views and an increase in website traffic to visitfremantle.com of over 100 per cent.

There is still time for businesses to sign up as part of the campaign. If you are interested in participating in the campaign as a business please contact marketing@fremantle.wa.gov.au
