Five years in the making, Fremantle: City of Colour is an artist’s celebration of the Western Australian port city of Fremantle. 

With the passion of an artist’s heart, Cate Rose captures the life of her home town with art and photography.

Fremantle: City of Colour takes a tour of Fremantle with beautiful visuals. Each artwork is accompanied by an engaging description about its historical background.


Experience the colour:  a reflection of Fremantle’s eclectic past & bright future:  magnificent yet dark, difficult yet wonderful, desperate yet hopeful.

Explore the streets packed with colour and history.

Lose yourself in the bustle of the Fremantle Markets, the commotion of the Fisherman’s Harbour, the quiet streets...the bracing ocean winds at South Mole lighthouse.  

Come, discover the gorgeous old port city afresh.
“The book is superbly produced and represents excellent value for your own coffee table or for a special gift.”
