BYO blanket to sit on, rug up and bring a warm drink or picnic to suit the season. I'll field any questions you have about astronomy, space and science all the while watching the sky through my 14 inch telescope to look at stars, planets and much else. We could see shooting stars, space junk, the International Space Station, the Hubble Space Telescope...you just never know (well, I do!). The next 3 nights in this series are Feb 19, Mar 21 & Apr 19.

One of the greatest things about living in 2018 is that we all have access to an incredibly powerful camera right in our own pockets. Join me, Adrian, on a walking photography tour as we snap photos of some of the beautiful sights Fremantle has to offer. We will meet at Bistro 21 (on South Beach), before we commence our tour focusing on the scenic seaside location and the native flora of the area. Once we are done, our round trip will lead us right back to Bistro 21 where we will sit and compare snaps and vote on the best photos. Our trip (including the cafe) is entirely accessible and anyone interested in photography is welcome to join with no prior photography experience necessary. If you don't have a phone don't worry, I will be bringing a DSLR camera that we can share if you'd like to have a crack at a more advanced camera. You are also welcome to bring some money for coffee (and/or cake) back at Bistro 21. If you need help with directions or are in need of any other information, please don't hesitate to call me on[masked] Can't wait to see you there! Adrian
