Visit Fremantle City of Art

The picturesque port city of Fremantle is located in Perth’s metropolitan area, at the mouth of the Swan River. Fremantle is the pulsing heart of Perth. The 19th-century architecture, fresh sea breeze, and activity of the busy city all contribute to it being a lovely site. Fremantle is well-known for its incredible food and nightlife culture, so don’t be shocked if you spend the majority of your time eating and drinking your way through the city. Fremantle (or Freo, as it’s affectionately known by locals) is a port city with gorgeous historic buildings and a thriving music and arts scene.
