North Fremantle MetrO 8

Saturday 16th JanuaryLastcontrolbattle

Come enjoy your weekend by the river, Register here! >>

It’s not often that MetrO events have a grandstand view, but this week the North Fremantle event starts from the stands at Gilbert Fraser Reserve. You will have a prime view of the Swan River and a couple of cricket matches, not to mention the likes of tRicky and Liam steaming into the Finish.

Long course runners (and anyone who cares to visit after the event) will also have a great view over the river and Fremantle from Mt Lyell in the north of the map.

The area includes bushland, sandy beaches, high cliffs, hidden parks, and World War 2 guns. Noel has even included the spot where he got married!

The Grandstand Bar will be open for refreshments after the event.
