Owner description: The Fremantle Round House is the oldest public building in Western Australia, purpose built as a gaol (jail) when the Swan River Colony was first settled. Volunteer Guides are available to share the history of the Round House with visitors and the Round House is open from 10.30am to 3.30pm daily (except for Christmas Day and Good Friday). The cannon is fired (weather permitting) at 1.00pm every day on the Gun Deck and we welcome visitors applying to be the Honorary Gunner for the day.

Well informed volunteer guides are at hand to answer any questions. Well worth a visit, unfortunately no wheelchair access

Great to see the building, but the information from the volunteer staff is what made it for us. Do take the time to ask them about the history of the place.

Not only a tourist attraction but visits are hosted by volunteers who offer a wealth of knowledge. An inexpensive visit for many overseas students and visitors as well as the locals of WA

This place was FREE and very well preserved. Excellent views and very well kept up :). It is also near the beach and they let the gun off around 1.00pm daily.
