Fremantle will be transformed into Funmantle, a giant playground for kids from 10 to 18 April. This family-friendly community event is spread across four seaside locations including the Mystical Kings Castle at Esplanade Reserve, Shipwreck Alley outside the WA Shipwreck Museum, Salty Sailors Landing at Bathers Beach and the Magical Market Bazaar outside Fremantle Markets.
Eight carnival rides across the four seaside locations. There will be two rides at each location and special activities along the way. Rides will close at 3 pm each day (2 pm on Saturday 10 April).
Daily opportunities to meet and have a photo with mermaids, unicorns and giant flamingos near Salty Sailor's Landing at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour. Mermaid Nixie will be at Mews Park Fisherman's Jetty from 11 am - 1 pm. You can see unicorns in Mews Park from 12 pm - 2 pm. Giant Flamingos can be found in the water along the boardwalk at 'Flamingo Bay' in Mews Park from 10 am - 3 pm each day.
