MyWikiBiz, Author Your Legacy — Wednesday May 22, 2013
Situated directly on the historic Arthur Head - Fremantle is the Bathers Beach Art Precinct, housing a number of established Fremantle Artists. It has been operating as a productive art space since 1992. In recent times more artists studios have been established in the old Port buildings creating a 'Bathers Beach Arts Precinct'.  Fremantle is a city in on the West coast of Australia.
Joan Campbell is the original Bathers Beach Artist. She open her studio in the Old Kerosene Store building (today Kidogo Arthouse Fremantle) near the ruins of the original Fremantle Jetty in 1975.
Bathers Beach is the jewel in Fremantle's crown, not many cities can boast a beautiful calm beach within walking distance of the town centre. It is an area that is evolving into a vibrant arts precinct which is rapidly being recognised worldwide for its beauty, heritage and the talent of the artists within it.
This active art community at Bathers Beach includes highly respected sculptors, painters, photographers, ceramic artists and designers. The Bathers Beach Art Precinct has a close working relationship with Western Australian indigenous artists, often engaging in collaborative public art projects. There are also galleries which display the works of local artists.

Walyalup is the Wadjuk-Noongar Aboriginal name for Fremantle and the Bathers Beach area is of historical significance to indigenous Australians in that Fremantle sits at the mouth of the Swan River. In Aboriginal beliefs known as Dreamtime, the Wadjuk-Noongar people consider the river to be evidence left behind of the existence of the winding path of the Rainbow Serpent, known as the Wagyl.
In 1829 British settlers claimed the land and in 1831 built Western Australia’s oldest public building, the Round House jail, on the natural promontory of Arthur Head. The Roundhouse, the Whaler's Tunnel which runs underneath it and the other historic and natural features of the area make for a wonderful journey through history, nature, culture and art.
