Fremantle Society Arthur Head Campaign Goes National

Liberal candidate for next year's state election, Miquela Riley, brought Federal Senator Matt O'Sullivan to Fremantle today to see first hand the sorry state of the state's premier heritage site, Arthur Head.

The Fremantle Society showed Miquela and Matt around, and afterwards they can be seen filming a summary of their visit, with Miquela on the right with Matt O'Sullivan behind.

Matt O'Sullivan was elected to the Senate for Western Australia in 2019. He is interested in the Fremantle Society proposal for Federal Heritage listing of Arthur Head. The Federal list is small and prestigious, with only the Fremantle Prison and Warders Cottages in Henderson Street currently listed from WA.

Miquela has been active and engaged with the Fremantle community, and has committed to advocate strongly for the important historic stories of Arthur Head in getting adequate funding for urgent repairs, restoration, interpretation, and ongoing maintenance.

Miquela has scheduled another meeting with the Fremantle Society this week.

Both politicians can see the heritage and historical significance of this sadly neglected but exceptional site, and the tales it could tell. The Fremantle Society gave both politicians key documents about Arthur Head, including a copy of the positive vision the Fremantle Society has for the area which brings in among other things, the need to develop the Maritime Heritage Trail which runs through the site.

The vision has been totally ignored by Fremantle Council, despite council asking for Fremantle Society help. Interestingly, the Senator months ago asked Council for a list of projects they needed money for, and Arthur Head was not on the council's list.
