Postcard from Fremantle

Postcard from Fremantle

I expected to love Little Creatures Brewery in Fremantle. Any space with craft beer is all right in my book, and waterfront location doesn’t hurt either. However, I didn’t expect to fall in love with the city’s outdoor art–but between giant mermaids and adorable dogs, how can you not?

I hopped over to this statue to see if there was any explanation…but there was not. Art in its purest form.

An awesomely functional statue: check out the cool dog, and then have your own pooch cool off with some fresh water.

Such a good space: outdoor seating next to the water at Little Creatures Brewery.

The decor? Industrial hipster, with bright colors on gray backgrounds and eco-friendly–keg lighting.

Kangaroo skewers are the perfect accompaniment to a pint of Pale Ale. Yum!

    Is eating kangaroo really common and inexpensive in Australia? I hear they are as common as deer back home in California. What does it taste like?

    Loved the article esp as I’ve just got back myself from 4 days in Freo!!

    Well, I’ve never had deer at home in California…so not sure about that reference! But yes, it’s common, inexpensive and it’s much better environmentally because it’s not farmed. Plus, it’s super low in fat–and tastes great. I loved it, and used to pick it up from the butcher or kanga bangas (kangaroo sausages) from the grocery store all the time!

    Hi Christine, I was wondering if I could use the photo you have of that female statue on the bench for a story I’m writing? It’s for a contest where you write a “postcard story” related to a picture. I can send you the story and I think when I submit it I get to credit you.

    Yes, absolutely–just be sure it’s credited. Will email you back now!
