Fremantle port opened to view

FREMANTLE Port’s North Quay will be open to the public for the first time in many years on 30 April as part of a Port Open Day organised by the Fremantle Port Authority.

FPA CEO Kerry Sanderson said the nature of modern cargo handling, the scale of equipment involved and safety requirements meant the port’s operational areas were usually closed to the public.

“The Port Open Day program has been planned to give the public safe access to the North Quay container handling area under supervised conditions,” Ms Sanderson said.

A Royal Australian Navy guided missile frigate will be open to visitors on Victoria Quay.

Other vessels on display will be a Stirling Harbour Services tug and the FPA’s emergency response vessel, FP Response.

Displays in the FPA administration building’s foyer will include the use of the dynamic underkeel clearance system which enables very large ships to access the port at deeper drafts.
