Landmarks and Buildings

Marcus Canning’s ‘Rainbow’ was installed between the bridges at Beach Reserve overlooking the Fremantle port in 2016. At 9-metres high and19-metres long, and tipping the scales at 66 tonnes Rainbow is not your average public art piece.

The sculpture by prominent Perth artist Marcus Canning is constructed from nine recycled sea containers joined to form an arch.

Canning’s artwork now welcomes visitors to Fremantle whether they’re arriving by train, car or boat. It overlooks the Swan River as well as the container port from which it draws part of its inspiration as a universal symbol of hope and acknowledgement of Fremantle’s artistic as well as maritime heritage.

See it for yourself at Beach Reserve adjacent to Canning Highway, overlooking the Swan River and the port! It’s 1.6 kilometres from Fremantle bus and train station. There’s plenty of parking at East Street Jetty on Beach Street. It’s a short walk up the ramp behind the café or you can hire a free bike from Fremantle Visitor Centre in the town hall.
