In the days of the big passenger ships, Fremantle was known as the gateway to Australia. Along came jet travel and the gate all but closed. Then in 1987 the port city became the centre of world attention during the Australian defense of the America's Cup. Happily, today it has retained all of its old charm: its situation at the mouth of the Swan River, its picturesque old buildings, its cultural diversity and what its longtime residents still call the Fremantle feeling. This sets it apart from the capital, Perth.

The route begins and ends outside the Fremantle Bus/Train terminus, and includes Fremantle Oval, the Fremantle Museum and Arts Centre, the Woolstores Shopping Centre, the Cappuccino Strip and Fremantle Markets. It then travels down to South Fremantle and then back along Marine Terrace, past the Esplanade and the WA Maritime Museum and E Shed Markets, then back to its beginning at the train station.
However, it has retained its cosmopolitan nature and preserved its identity, largely through the good sense and dedication of its modern-day civic fathers. In a few square kilometres, it would be hard to find a bigger variety of sights, sounds and experiences. And they can be encompassed comfortably on foot.
fre Perhaps a visit should begin, mid-morning, with a coffee or a locally brewed beer on South Terrace, sometimes called Cappuccino Strip for its outdoor-cafe atmosphere. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (and public holidays), a stroll through the venerable Fremantle Markets, also on South Terrace, will produce anything from potted shrimp to a 78 record to a busker wearing a boater.
Freo’s Amenities

The Fremantle Markets, located on the corner of South Terrace and Henderson Street are one of the best-known landmarks in Fremantle, and a great way to combine sightseeing with bargain hunting. The markets feature more stalls than you can visit in an afternoon, selling everything from souvenirs to seafood, from locally made clothing to jewellery and gemstones.
d If you're into pubs, you'll find much to please you in Fremantle. On the corner of South Terrace and Norfolk Street, the beautifully restored Norfolk Hotel has a courtyard area which is well known for its laid-back unplugged Sunday sessions. Just a minute's walk from the Norfolk, and within the Fremantle Markets, there's a little bar which overlooks the main market hall and is open the same hours. Worth a visit because of its olde-world feel and lively buskers, the bar offers cafe-style meals and local beers.
Opposite the markets on the other side of the Henderson Street mall, the Sail & Anchor brews its own English-style ales on the premises. Dogbolter and Brass Monkey Stout are just two of the drinkables on tap. The Sail and Anchor serves woodfired pizzas in its pleasant beer garden.
