Fremantle

Historic Sites · Flea Markets · Beaches
Settled by colonists and convicts in 1829, Fremantle has transformed its infamous historical buildings into cultural centers. The former Fremantle Prison, known for its grueling treatment of prisoners, operated from the early 1800s until 1991. The building is now a museum and occupied by art studios. The former asylum is now The Fremantle Arts Centre. These Victorian colonist buildings have remained well-preserved and give the city of 25,000 a grand feel that doesn't sacrifice its modern edge. Visitors and locals attend events and wander the galleries in these historic venues, bringing a contemporary glow to a dark past. Our Australia trip app allows you to schedule your trip to Fremantle, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
