Project Description

Fremantle has a wealth of history and community stories, but they are not available when you're sitting down enjoying a coffee in the sun on the esplanade.

So what if you could pull out your smartphone and read, look or listen to information about the heritage of the buildings, events and people who lived around you in the past.

The mix of maps, geo-located content, augmented reality, and voice commentary can make the whole of Fremantle a interactive living history.
