This will be a fun annual event at Victoria Quay, Fremantle Port. It celebrates all things maritime and is a great day to enjoy the port, the people and the exhibitions.

It will be held at the historic B Shed, which is on Peter Hughes Drive, and surrounding areas on Victoria Quay. This area takes advantage of the amazing Fremantle Harbour location.

You will be able to see the boats, displays and "big toys". The day will be packed with action for friends and the whole family.
