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.

We had planned to go to the roundhouse but we had the added bonus of arriving just before the cannon was about to be fired. Had front row seats watching the set up and firing. Great experience. The round house was also an interesting place and the view was great

Doesnt open until 10.30 but worth the little walk up the steps. Go behind to get a great view of the sea. Doesnt look like a swim beach though.too near the port.

Have a quick stop if you are within the city of Fremantle. Few minutes to look around and have pictures.
