How to celebrate your favourite mother figure in Fremantle

03 April 2024

Smother your mother, best friend or mother-figure with gratitude and love in Freo for Mother’s Day on Sunday 12 May. 

Whatever their style or your budget, Fremantle is bursting with places to drink, dine and shop. Why not extend the celebrations to the whole weekend—stay in one of the city’s hotels for the opti-mum experience!

Shout her brunch, lunch or dinner

Fremantle Mother's Day at Gage Roads

Get the family together and celebrate over a meal in Fremantle. From MUMosa’s at Gage Roads, or afternoon tea at the charmingly iconic Esplanade Hotel by Rydges, to relaxed beach or riverside dining, or even a three-course lunch at a classic Freo Italian restaurant.

Treat her to a bespoke wine subscription service

Fremantle Old Bridge Cellars

Local wine purveyors Old Bridge Cellars have designed their brand new wine subscription service to redefine your wine experience. All you need to do is decide whether mum's a 'slurper' or 'sipper', then sign her up to the Old Bridge Quarterly Drop. Heck, sign yourself up too and you share the journey together!

Meander the morning markets

Freo Farmers Market: tasty burgers from food stalls

If your favourite loves browsing food stalls, artisans, fresh flowers and local produce, Freo Farmers Market will be the perfect way to kick off the day. An animal farm and face painting will keep kids entertained, and everyone can enjoy live music from Ari Davis while relaxing at the huge picnic area. Pop it in the calendar!

Unleash your creativity

Fremantle Mother's Day: Pinot and Picasso

Revealed WA Aboriginal Art Market at Fremantle Arts Centre will be the day before Mother's Day (Saturday 11 May) – How good is that? Lock in a date with your mum, friend or mother figure, or hunt out the perfect gift before you see them on Sunday.

Paint n' Sips are a fun way to share some laughs and sip on your favourite beverages as you learn how to create your own masterpiece. It's the perfect recipe for a memorable night out! Let the good times roll when you book mum in at Pinot & Picasso (pictured), Frida's Luxe Sip n' Paint or check What's On for details of any pop up events.

This year, you can also take them into the studios, homes, and creative spaces of local artists during Artwalk Freo. It's running over three weeks in May (4-5 May: South Freo / 11-12 May: White Gum Valley / 18-19 May: Monument Hill).

Primp, preen & massage

Fremantle Mother's Day South Beach Sauna

It's not just the ocean-fresh air that's healing in Freo. Languid, relaxed vibes are the perfect gift for a loved one who deserves some pampering. Treat them to a quick mani-pedi or beauty treatment, or gift them a fully indulgent wellness experience they can melt into for an afternoon! What could be more relaxing (and more Freo) than healing your body AND soaking up serene seaside vibes at The Neighbourhood Sauna's unique South Beach space? Discover more beauty, spas and wellbeing in Fremantle.

Do they prefer ice baths, yoga, breathwork or sound healing? For a transformative opportunity, follow the movement to Namasteam in South Fremantle.

Finally learn how to build a terrarium

Fremantle Mother's Day The green Emporium

Learn tips and tricks for how to miniscape your own little green world and keep it flourishing at the Green Emporium Mother's Day terrarium workshop. Morning and afternoon sessions are available, so you can find the perfect time to treat yourself or someone you love to this great, hands-on experience.

Spoil her with gifts

Mother's Day in Fremantle: Remedy Store

Independent shop keepers with passion for their wares open their doors in neighbourhoods of heritage lined streets; a century-old shoe store, well stocked bookshops, curated vintage, bespoke clothing, local artisans and original fashion. It’s open air shopping at its best.

Show your love with flowers

Fremantle Mother's Day Floral Army

Beautiful blooms show how much you care! Pre-order something special from Flower Hound and Stackwood (Fremantle), or Floral Army (East Fremantle, pictured).

Extend your celebrations all weekend long

New or completely refurbished, harbour and ocean views, convict-built, boutique, lovingly-restored and traditional Australian pubs, find the perfect place for your stay in Fremantle.
