Fremantle Writers WalkPrint Page Print this page

The Writers Walk consists of 2.4 metre high markers with a quote inscribed on one side from the work of a writer with Fremantle connections.

Five writers are honoured, with the first marker being for Tim Winton, with a quote from his most famous novel Cloudstreet. 

The second marker is for Joan London whose two novels Gilgamesh and The Good Parent have been best sellers, and the last marker is for indigenous writer Kim Scott. Both these writers live or have lived in Fremantle.

In between are markers for John Boyle O’Reilly and Xavier Herbert.
