Things to Do in Fremantle Today
Day trips from Perth Visit Fremantle
Fremantle is a bustling port city in Western Australia, located on the outskirts of Perth – one of the world’s most isolated cities. Despite the remoteness of this region, WA is a popular tourist destination for its Mediterranean climate, rich heritage and history, and its plethora of entertaining things to do in your free time. Here are our top 5 reasons why Fremantle should be on your bucket list.
Fremantle Prison is one of the most popular attractions in the area and has rightly earned its title as World Heritage-listed building. The site has also won a host of awards, including both the major tourist attractions and cultural tourism categories at the WA Tourism award.
Built by convicts
The prison has a fascinating past, built by convicts in the late 19th Century. It has withstood the test of time and remained as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years until 1991.
Nowadays, the empty prison walls, solitary cells, haunting gallows, and labyrinth-like tunnels entice tourists from across Australia and beyond.
