“FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Fremantle Arts Centre is located within the confines of a former mental asylum. The building itself is historic and quite imposing and it is difficult to visit without giving a thought to it's former inmates. Today it is a centre for Fremantle's artistic community, where regular workshops and classes are undertaken. It's picturesque setting offers an excellent venue for small concerts and performances. It also houses an excellent bookshop/gallery. Well worth a visit.

“Relaxed and romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Despite the large crowd (for carols), we still had our own little spot on the grass to have a picnic, see the stage, and enjoy the music.

“Worth a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

December 2012 had a display of Aboriginal art that was quite good. If it's a cool day, one might want to take a walk to the center from the cruise ship terminal.

“Always very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Great venue, great entertainment, fairly good service, which is saying something for Perth, although Freo is slightly more Melbournish so maybe that's why it fairs better.
