Fremantle doctor


Fremantle doctor
A cool sea breeze which brings relief on a hot summer's day. A wind blowing inland late in the day is a welcome feature of the climate in Western Australia's south-west. Like Fremantle, many towns have given it a local name. Albany, Geraldton, Esperance, Eucla and Perth all have their doctor, a reference to the 'healing' effect of the breeze.
