The Dingo flour mill in Fremantle, Western Australia photographed just before sunset. The Dingo flour sign is a local Fremantle icon, and has been heritage listed.

The sign was first painted in the late 1940’s, but was painted over during the second world war, which was a necessary war precaution. After the war, the sign was repainted using the original outline and has been maintained ever since.

Canon EOS 7D And 15-85 IS.

    Great capture and a definite west aussie icon, I had heard also that Paul Hogan had painted this in his pre-comedian painter days or is this just an urban myth?

  • I heard the same thing, not sure if it’s true though.

    The myth I heard was that Alan Bond was responsible for the painting.
    Nice image!

    Great shot of a Fremantle icon. I’ve driven past this a couple of times and wanted to grab a photo but was short on time and not really sure where to park and try to it approach from. It’s on my list of things to do when I’m not pressed for time.

    Looks like it should be named “Red Dog Flour”!!!
