your artwalk freo journey:
15-16 june 2019

Artwalk Freo is approximately 2 km long and should take roughly two hours or so while you enjoy the Freo urban landscape. Why not make a day of it and pack a picnic to take with you and enjoy at one of the parks along the way. As with all creative processes, Artwalk is a continual journey so feel free to start and end as you wish!

The home studios will be open on both days from 10am - 4pm. This year's $10 entry fee covers both days. Keep an eye out for signage and directional pavement logos.
