Free spirits don’t walk, they waft, often leaving a trail of essential oils in their wake.
You’ll glimpse them adding organic apples to their hemp carry-bags at far mers markets,
weaving through quiet streets on bikes with wicker baskets, or rallying in Esplanade Park
against the Roe 8 extension.
LOVE S Lefty politics,
crystals, free love.
PLAYLIST They love
or roots, with bonus
points for chilled-out
sounds with a political
undercurrent. John Butler
Trio, Xavier Rudd and
Zarm are on high rotation.
WAT E RING HOLE Small bar?
Why restrict themselves, when the
universe is so expansive, man?
Instead, bohemian breeds are
partial to lugging cleanskins and
a djembe (translation: tribal drum)
to South Beach. Still, they love the
Sunday Sessions at the Fremantle
Arts Centre from October onwards,
where they can listen to chilled-out
folk music on the grass with a picnic
and a bottle of organic red.
SUN DAY MORNING BREKKIE At Maylands’
new Little Shop of Plenty, granola crunchers
can, quite literally, crunch on buckwheat granola,
as well as slurp on exotic superfood smoothies
like cashew cacao or banana with bee pollen.
Ootong & Lincoln is another fave for its quirky
hodgepodge decor, live roots music on Sundays,
and proximity to South Beach and yoga studios.
SPECIAL OCCASION DINNE R
Freo’s Gypsy Tapas House has
a worldly menu and performances
by scruffy beatnik musicians, while
over in the city, Greenhouse
– with its vertical gardens,
sustainable systems, and fresh
food straight from the grounds – is
an eco-warrior’s wet dream.
Spirits head to Rock
Paper Scissors in
South Freo, to get
their hair braided
or some ‘natural’
with cruelty-free, eco
in Kensington is
the go-to for the
perfect roughly hewn
dreddies. And for
a nature- (and, uh,
Pinelake, set deep
within the forest,

RE TAIL T HE RAPY Boho babes love the
crystal jewellery from Lunarsea Designs, and
whimsical swimsuits from Gypsea. The online
destination Turquoise Lane has a showroom
in Osborne Park, where haute-hippies flock
for flowy kaftans and ikat maxis from Spell
Designs, Stone Cold Fox and Free People.
WORKOUT Though their
diet of organic everything
keeps them supple, free
spirits froth yoga (what
else?), especially at Beacon
Yoga Centre or Mala Yoga.
PLAYT IME It’s all about
camping at folk festivals like
Fairbridge or Nanga Music
Festival, or trips down south
to see bands at Settler’s
Tavern. Of course, free spirits
also love dabbling in the
crystal-healing and chakra-
balancing workshops at
Kalamunda’s Joy Sanctuary.
