Fremantle and War: online exhibition


To commemorate Australia's centenary of World War One, this online exhibition (summarised here in video format) pauses to consider powerful moments in Fremantle's experience of war. This exhibition, and others about Fremantle, can be found at www.fremantlehistory.com.au

Uncovering some of the nation's most precious images, students at the University of Notre Dame Australia have looked at the many elements of Fremantle's war history including the colonial frontier, departure of troops, home front experiences, dissent and refuge. These pictures come from some of the nation's leading private and public archives. The exhibition was produced by the University of Notre Dame Australia with assistance in setting up the website coming from the City of Fremantle.

If you have ancestors that were involved in World War One, we would like to hear their story! The Great War touched every home and every community across Australia and one hundred years on the ANZAC legend is still alive and well. We want to give a voice to the experiences of Fremantle men and women during periods of war and the transformation of our town.
