Held at the East Fremantle Yacht Club, family and friends celebrated with Town's elected members, Mayor Jim O'Neill, Cr Andrew McPhail, Cr Dean Nardi, Cr Cliff Collinson and Cr Tony Watkins. 

Mayor O'Neill said "This ceremony is an Act of Law and participants undertake a new allegiance and a new responsibility. You take on a new status in Australia and wherever you may travel in the world.  It is a status of which you may be proud, a status of a nation which is vigorous, independent and free".

Federal Labour Member for Fremantle, Josh Wilson and the Hon. Simon O'Brien MLC South Metropolitan also attended to welcome our new citizens.

Refreshments were served to guests on the balcony overlooking the beautiful Swan River.
