Finding activities and events
What’s On gives you all the details of the City’s community activities and events and is regularly updated. The events and/or activities may be free or low cost and activities can run for several weeks to allow all participants a chance to fully enjoy the experience.
The Meeting Place is a community centre, which provides a range of unique courses, workshops, events and talks reflecting Fremantle's diverse community. The centre supports lifelong learning, helps people share and develop their skills and connect with other community members.
Fremantle Men’s Community Shed is a local community shed initiative that evolved from an idea that men in Fremantle could benefit from having a "tooled-up" shed facility to work on projects, either their own or community ones. The Men's Shed is staffed by volunteers and supported by the City of Fremantle.
