Description

From Rotten Potatoes to a Golden Bonanza – A walking tour of Fremantle’s West End

The potato famine in Ireland in the 1850s decimated a nation forcing many to leave for new lives abroad.

Fremantle and Western Australia benefited greatly from this tragic Irish exodus.

Walk with Mike and Joy LeFroy (Museums Without Walls) through Fremantle’s historic West End and meet the famous and the not so famous Irish immigrants who found themselves in one of the most isolated outposts of the British Empire.

Begin and end the tour at Kidogo (Bathers Beach).

Sunscreen and water provided.

Bookings essential.
