This beautiful coastal port city bounded by the Indian Ocean and the Swan River is just 20 km from Perth. The City of Fremantle was established in 1829 as a port for the Swan River Colony and was the major city in Western Australia for much of its early history.
Fremantle’s unique character is captured by its landscape, its heritage architecture, music, arts and culture, festivals, retail stores and markets, cafés and restaurants, which all contribute to its village style atmosphere – making it a popular destination for local and international visitors.
A series of islands lie off the coast of Fremantle including the famous holiday island of Rottnest, Garden Island and Carnac Island. Rottnest Island is the only island that has a regular ferry service transporting visitors to and from Fremantle.
The enclosed and sheltered Fishing Boat Harbour and Success Harbour protect the city’s working and recreational fleets and are within walking distance of the city centre. The Fishing Boat Harbour precinct also features boardwalks, café’s restaurants and a brewery.
