Austereo Perth is the home of Perth’s two favourite radio stations: mix94.5 and 92.9.
mix94.5 has been Perth’s number one radio station for a record-breaking 11 years; waking listeners up with The Bunch and boasting Perth’s only local drive show The Big Couch. We target the 25-54 “Baby Boomer” audience. Extensive research has shown that the Baby Boomers of today are very different from their parents at the same age. Baby Boomers grew up in the most exciting period of the last century - the 1960’s and 1970’s – which were times of great change and music played a big part in this mini revolution. Each week we research Perth radio listeners to make sure that mix94.5 ’s music, competitions and on-air line up reflect what our target audience want.... and it’s paid off!
mix94.5 has the widest variety of music in Perth. Our policy of “Perth’s home of variety” means that listeners are constantly surprised with the extreme variety of songs they hear on the station. At any time you could hear The Beatles followed by something by Pink and then Queen followed by ACDC. Then you might hear Fleetwood Mac from the 70’s, followed by Robbie Williams, The Eagles & Coldplay.
92.9 is Perth’s number one hit music station for under 40s and entertains them from dawn til dusk with Lisa, Baz & Sam and their Gotcha Calls and Rescues, as well as Fifi & Jules, Kyle & Jackie O and the one and only Hamish & Andy.
Austereo Perth loves to get in touch with their listeners and is proud to be a partner of the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships. Both mix94.5 and 92.9 will be backing the championships 100% to help make it the biggest and the best, and will be there cheering the sailing competitors on as they attempt to tame the ‘Fremantle Doctor’ in December.

Department of Transport
Managed by the Department of Transport, Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is the hub of the fishing industry, catering for approximately 450 vessels (including recreational pens). The harbour is also home to a significant marine industry, including a boat lifter with a 250 tonne travel lift for larger commercial vessels, and a variety of businesses that support the marine industry. The harbour has its origins in the fishing industry, dating back to the 1800’s and many families of the original fishermen still fish out of Fremantle today. The current multi million dollar industry is a result of the perseverance and hard work of the fishermen who have created an internationally respected modern industry. This industry has given Fremantle much of its character and charm and the Fishermen’s Memorial located within the harbour carries the names of 608 pioneering fishermen that recognises their endeavours. Fishing Boat Harbour and the adjoining Challenger Harbour incorporate a vibrant tourism precinct with 56 serviced apartments, 10 restaurants and cafes including a boutique brewery, and 361 recreational boat pens. The integration between the marine and tourism precincts is unique. Visitors can enjoy a meal or cappuccino at one of the restaurants surrounded by boardwalks while watching the Cray fishermen unloading their catch. It is a popular location for events, both local and international.

The Outer Harbour, 20 kilometres further south on the shores of Cockburn Sound was opened in 1955. Its deepwater bulk port facilities were developed to service the Kwinana industrial area, which expanded rapidly in the 1960s and '70s. The Fremantle Inner Harbour provides modern deep-water facilities for handling container trade, break-bulk vessels, livestock exports and motor vehicle imports. It also accommodates cruise ships and visiting naval vessels.
