The Rainbow is easily spotted as you approach Fremantle from the east and the north. A vibrant welcome to the port city and a nod to the significance of the shipping industry at Fremantle Port.

The #freorainbow or #containbow as it's been nicknamed, is very popular with Instagrammers and the perfect stop for a photo op. 

The sculpture by prominent Perth artist Marcus Canning and commissioned by the City of Fremantle is constructed from nine recycled sea containers joined to form an arch. Colourful and creative, the sea containers form the shape of a giant rainbow as a universal symbol of hope and inspiration..

The video below shows the fascinating construction of this Freo icon. Pop down and see it for yourself at Beach Reserve adjacent to Canning Highway, overlooking the Swan River and the port!
