Fremantle is a port city 19km southwest of Perth, Australia, rich in heritage, named after the British Captain, Charles Fremantle who claimed possession of Western Australia in the early 19th Century.
If you like a bit of history, you’ll like Fremantle. During World War II, Fremantle was the second largest base for Allied submarines during the Pacific military operations. As a result, there still remain numerous sites important to the heritage of Australia such as The Maritime Museum, The Round House (the oldest remaining building in Western Australia), The Fremantle Prison (one of the most well known jails of the British Empire) and the Fremantle History Museum (once the base of the US Navy during World War II). Furthermore, Fremantle is the resting place of AC/DC lead singer Bon Scott and his grave has been listed as a National Heritage Site.
In terms of activities, Fremantle provides you with access to the Indian Ocean, a thriving arts scene, international cuisine and great coffee thanks to it’s famous ‘Cappuccino strip’. From the harbour you can charter a fishing boat, and enjoy the restaurants and markets along the harbour side and is also the site of the commemorative statue of Bon Scott, erected in 2009.
Fremantle is a great and convenient base from which you can discover and explore the magnificent beauty of Western Australia with it’s rich flora and fauna, white sandy beaches and stunning waters, perfect for the seekers of beauty and adventure.
