Synopsis: Just 20 minutes' drive southwest of Perth is the mouth of the Swan River and the port town of Fremantle. Fremantle combines very interesting history with some superb local museums, some great swimming locations and lots of good bars and restaurants.

Visiting Fremantle WA

A vibrant port city, it is rich in heritage buildings and attractions, maritime history and culture. Fremantle has been recognised as the best preserved example of a 19th century port streetscape in the world. It has Western Australia's largest collection of heritage listed buildings, many of which house attractions, museums, offices, art galleries and shops.

Be sure to visit the famous Fremantle Markets (open Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays) for local crafts, fresh food, clothes, jewellery and all sorts of curios. When you want a break from shopping, sampling and eating, sit in the corner bar and watch the markets' colourful hustle and bustle.

Maritime experiences include a visit to the working Fishing Boat Harbour and Fremantle Port as well as the new Maritime Museum which overlooks the working port.

Restaurants and cafes cater to every taste from the traditional to the exotic. Fremantle's cultural diversity is reflected in the range of cuisines from Europe, Asia and all points between. Highlights can be found on 'cappuccino strip' along South Street. Fresh local seafood is also recommended.

Numerous entertainment venues including a puppet theatre, cinemas, music clubs and bars offer a tantalising choice to visitors. Buskers can often be seen performing in the streets and at various stations in Fremantle. There are also several licensed clubs including a multicultural performing arts centre.

Fremantle's cultural diversity is evident in some of its sports clubs such as soccer, bocce and Australian football. There is also a vast range of other activities on offer including golf, swimming, basketball, tennis and sailing.

All this makes Fremantle more than just a 'port of call'; it is an ideal place to stay. Accommodation ranges from backpackers and camping to bed and breakfasts and luxurious hotels.
