The beach is the best place to be on a hot summer's night


One of the best ways to spend a balmy summer Saturday evening in Fremantle is browsing what's on offer at the Sunset Markets. Food vans set up on the grass to the north of the South Beach kiosk and serve tasty meals from all corners of the globe. The delicacies include dishes from Thailand, India, Mexico, Japan, Malaysia, Morocco, Spain, Greece, Vietnam, Italy, Argentina, France, Korea and many more countries. With such a cultural smorgasbord on offer, you feel as though you could be anywhere in the world.

This popular event has been supported for the last four seasons by well-known local business Dethridge Groves Real Estate, who recently celebrated their fortieth anniversary. Besides the great choice of food, there are pop-up bars serving ice cold beers and wine.

Local musicians provide entertainment for the adults and there's children's entertainment and face painting to keep the kids occupied. Dogs are welcome too as long as they're on a lead.

The markets boast free parking, but spaces fill up quickly. Extra parking is available on the corner of Douro Road and Hampton Road, but you might be better to cycle or catch the free CAT bus, which runs along South Terrace every 20 minutes until 9pm.

Don't forget your cash as this is all many stalls will accept


South Beach Sunset Markets is trying to reduce the use of non-recyclable single-use plastic, which has proved to be such an environmental disaster. To this end, the sale of bottled water is banned and customers are encouraged to bring their own utensils. Customers can top up their water bottles at a water station and washing up facilities are provided.

The grass is a popular place to sit and eat


So gather your friends and family and enjoy an alfresco dinner together. You can eat at tables near the food vans, or why not bring a rug and sit on the grass or on the beach watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean? The perfect end to another day in Paradise.
