Those of you familiar with our work will know that CAN has had a long association with oral historian Bill Bunbury. He has recorded and edited many of our successful oral history projects.

Bill recently launched his book Invisible Country. South West Australia: Understanding a landscape.

The award winning broadcaster interviewed farmers, ecologists, traditional owners and others involved with the land to explore the environmental changes that have impacted the South West since European settlement.

Invisible Country is a reminder that the land owns the people, not the other way round.

The Fremantle Heritage Festival celebrates Fremantle’s rich cultural heritage in ways you won’t believe! There is something for everyone in this festival – from choral singing to rock shows and from old school motorcycles to fine red wine.

The Heritage Festival explores Freo from its indigenous roots to the diverse culture we all enjoy today. Remember the Orange people? And it’s close to 30 years since the Americas Cup was in Fremantle! A lot has changed, a lot has happened. There are many stories to tell. So it’s time to take a broader look at our Heritage old and not so old.

We are keen to hear from you and how you would like to contribute to this fascinating festival. It could be a wine tasting, an open house, a concert, a story, a film screening, or even a bake off!

If it’s connected to Fremantle’s heritage and culture then we want to know about it! Call the festivals team on 9432 9786 or register now.
