Fremantle is an Indian Ocean port, clinging to the western edge of Australia, facing west towards Rottnest Island, Mauritius, and Africa.

You could claim that Fremantle is a suburb of Perth, but you'd be wrong. It is a city in its own right, deliciously different from Perth in its location, people and style.

Fremantle

Get in

You could arrive in Fremantle via cargo ship or cruise liner. That way, you would, after a long journey, arrive at a long flat sandy coastline dotted with trees and make for the obvious port.

By car Take Leach Highway west, Stirling Highway south-west or Canning Highway west. From the south, take Rockingham Road. From the north coast, West Coast Highway and the Curtin Avenue lead to the port. From Perth city, Fremantle is about a 30 minute drive.

There are lots of TransPerth buses that arrive and leave Fremantle. Routes 98 (clockwise) and 99 (anti-clockwise) are quick and frequent services that lead to Fremantle. They terminate at the Fremantle Railway Station.

Frequent commuter trains from Perth leaves from Perth's City Station, and makes the 25 minute trip to Fremantle via Perth's western suburbs, culminating in a breath-taking view of beach, ocean and port before arriving at Fremantle station.

See the TransPerth Journey Planner (http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/iptisnetcom/NewJourney.asp) for more info on trains and buses.

Fremantle

Fremantle

Drink


  • The Sail and Anchor Pub Brewery serves unique and award winning beers(brewed onsite). If beer isn't your thing, you can quite easily get a local or international wine, cup of coffee or feed yourself at the al fresco Brewers Courtyard or on the balcony overlooking the famous Cappuccino Strip. The Sail and Anchor website (http://www.sailandanchor.com.au/)


  • Little Creatures, found inside a converted boatshed and crocodile farm, is a "cellar door" bar/restaurant. The beer is fresh (straight of the conditioning vat, as fresh as you can get!), the food is great (dinner served until 11:pm, wood-fired pizzas until midnight ) and nothing beats watching the sun set through the masts of Fishing Boat Harbour.
