District Governor Linda and Greg are returning to Linda’s childhood holidays by inviting you to join them in Fremantle on 31st March to 2nd April 2017 for the Annual District Conference.
A port city, Fremantle is known for its maritime history, Victorian architecture and remnants from Australia's days as a British penal colony. With numerous opportunities for dinning, entertainment and enjoying the ocean environment Fremantle offers the chance for a mini break holiday. 
The venue for the District Conference will be the Fremantle Sailing Club in Marine Terrace Fremantle with its beautifully enlarged conference facilities.  Situated on the Indian Ocean waterfront and five minutes away from the Fremantle CBD it has ample free parking, is adjacent to excellent bike paths and is also served b the free CAT bus. 



The Conference will be hosted by the Rotary Club of Fremantle with assistance from surrounding clubs and we are planning an interesting and thought provoking weekend with the theme Nurturing Humanity.  Covering areas from Nurturing at Home, Nurturing Abroad, Nurturing the Mind, the Spirit and the Planet we hope to interest, fascinate and provoke you into more Rotary Action to Serve Humanity.

The Sundowner-Friday

Pick Up your Buckets and Spades and join us at 6.00 pm for the Friday evening opening Sundowner for a light supper (including fish and chips) and refreshments. 

The Governor's Gala Dinner-Saturday

Enjoy a night of Fun, Food and Fellowship in the “Wardroom” with magnificent sunset views over harbour and ocean.  Commencing with a pre-dinner drink, the theme is a “Purple” splash – No Prizes for guessing Linda’s favourite colour – and it’s only incidentally Dockers.

Partners Programme 

No formal partners programme will be arranged this year.  There is so much to see and do in Fremantle we do not wish to restrict your choices.!!  Brochures and special opportunities will be arranged and available from the registration desk.
