The City of Fremantle is known for its unique heritage and as one of the most visited destinations in WA is constantly seeking new and innovative ways to make this information available to visitors. We are looking for a technology based solution that will provide a heritage interpretation experience to help replace the existing system. The solution will be judged on how unique, intuitive, accessible and easy it is to implement and will include but not be limited to the following topics:

  • Indigenous cultural heritage of the Whadjuk people and the Walyalup area (Fremantle)
  • Post - colonial heritage including built heritage and notable historic people/figures/landmarks
  • Location based stories, characters and information

Visually, the solution would ideally be developed in line with Fremantle’s destination brand ‘This is Fremantle’. A style guide and other assets have been provided.

A number of open datasets below provide a good place to start with regard to identifying sites, stories and landmarks worth sharing. We hope your research skills can identify some more!
