Video Celebrates Freo’s International Accolade

Published on : Wednesday, January 6, 2016

City_Fremantle_video (1)The City of Fremantle has created a short film highlighting the attractions and lifestyle that placed it on Lonely Planet’s list of the top 10 cities to visit in 2016.


The 2.5 minute video – which can be viewed at the City of Fremantle’s YouTube page – features an ‘adventure relay’ in which tourists, workers, students, business owners and children show off a Lonely Planet badge at a range of Freo sights.


The badge appears at Fisherman’s Wharf, the Dingo Flour Mill, Fremantle Prison, beaches, Esplanade Reserve, the Bon Scott statue, Fremantle Markets plus a range of bars, shops, restaurants and other attractions.


Local band San Cisco provide the soundtrack.


Coming in at number seven, Fremantle was the only Australian location to make Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016: Top 10 Cities selections.


The international travel publisher described Fremantle as “a raffish harbour town with sea-salty soul to burn” and a vibe that is “liberated, free-wheeling, engaging and infused with good music”. The full description is on the Best in Travel website.


The port city came in ahead of Manchester (UK), Nashville (USA) and Rome (Italy) as cities that should be added to travellers’ wish-lists this year.


The accolade is expected to boost Fremantle’s profile, visitation and revitalisation. More than $1.3 billion of private and public investment is in the development pipeline, and new hotels, restaurants, bars and experiences are already in place.
