Your walking tour of Fremantle, which sits just across the Swan River from Perth, starts at the Visitors Centre. Meet your guide here for your journey back in time to learn about the history of the city, from its origins as a fishing port to its present-day reputation for cafes, local artwork, shopping, microbreweries and live music.
Admire the Town Hall, which has remained mostly unchanged since it opened in 1887, providing an excellent example of 19th-century architecture. Then meander along narrow streets, pausing for photo ops and to hear stories from your guide about various events that helped shape this port city. When you reach the Cappuccino Strip, admire the lively stretch of cafes and restaurants where locals and visitors alike relax at outdoor tables for prime people-watching.
The last stop on your tour is the Fremantle Roundhouse, Western Australia’s oldest standing structure, which was built as a prison in 1830. Total walking distance is approximately 2 miles (3 km).
