Campaigns

The Fremantle Society has engaged in a large number of campaigns in its 47 year history—and succeeded in many of them—as recounted by the Davidsons in their book, Fighting for Fremantle: The Fremantle Society Story (2010) >

Some of the buildings saved—according to their record—include Victoria Hall, the Fremantle Prison, the Railway Station, some of the Warders Cottages, the Fremantle Markets, the Literary Institute (Evan Davies building/Dome), the Fire Station, the Orient Hotel, the State Ships building, and Dalkeith House on Queens Square.

The struggle to preserve the integrity of Arthur Head is still going on.

A new campaign concerns the 1939 Traffic Bridge. It is about to be superseded (at last) by a new one (as shown in this 2019 concept plan), and the Society is interested in future possibilities for the use of the old bridge.

It might be time to revisit the campaign to redesign Pioneer Park.
