Fremantle Cruise Port

Posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 |
Cruises to Fremantle (the smaller neighbouring city to Perth) dock at the Fremantle Passenger Terminal on Victoria Quay. The terminal is located just inside the Inner Harbour and very close to central Fremantle, so you can find all you need in the way of shops, bars and the rest just by getting off the ship and walking for a few minutes.

Fremantle is known as Freo by the locals and is very close to the bigger Perth, but distinct culturally. It is known and loved for its beautiful heritage buildings. If you are interested in history, there are numerous heritage trails that snake through the city- the Convict Trail, Maritime Heritage Trail, the Discovery Trail, the Writers Walk and more. If you are there in the weekend, be sure to visit the Fremantle Markets, open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The open-air section is a wonderland of fresh food and produce including amazing seafood, and inside there are stalls with locals selling everything from homewares to photography. As a port city, there are many ocean-based activities on offer from Fremantle- swimming with dolphins, kayak tours, or just eating fish and chips overlooking the fishing boats!

Fremantle is a great base for visiting Western Australia- so if you are embarking or disembarking there, take a few days to see the sights from laidback Freo.
