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.

The views are breathtaking. Great to see all the beach, islands and boats leaving Fremantle. Structure and design is lovely.

“Ring the bell!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

Be there at 1 pm to see the Time Ball and Time Gun ceremony, a wonderful tradition carried out each day to give mariners the exact time of day.

This building was built by the early prisoners and has very interesting rooms kept much as they were in those early days. One of our group had her photgraph taken in the stocks

“Good extra to the prison tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Not a lot here to see, but it was interesting to come here after the prison tour as this location was mentioned several times. Nice view from here.

“fremantle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

You can have a tour, its more like a talk about various things at the roundhouse. We missed out on that but still had a good look round, inside and out. It is worth going for a look.
