Freo - As far west as you can go without getting wet. Fremantle is where the sun meets the Indian Ocean. Just 20 minutes from Perth and 30 minutes from the Domestic and international airports, Fremantle is a world away from the ordinary. The city is recognised as one of the best preserved, 19th Century seaport cities in the world. It has a rich historic heritage, focusing on its maritime and convict past.
Approximately 150 buildings are classified by the National Trust, including the Round House (the oldest public building in Western Australia), the Fremantle Prison, the Esplanade Hotel, the Old Maritime Museum, and the Arts Centre. The relaxing and friendly harbour city is home to some fantastic museums, historic buildings, galleries, pubs and cafés. Fremantle is more than just a time capsule of a bygone era; it is a living, breathing city, which is able to excite and entertain all comers.
