Markets, restaurants, breweries, bars, history – you’ll find it all in Fremantle. Known for its maritime history, the port city is also home to the Fremantle Prison, which housed convicts from the 1850s to 1991, and the Round House, an 1831 building which also briefly served as a jail. If you’re chasing a good feed, the cappuccino strip is home to numerous Italian restaurants, Mexican joints, and pubs, while the port hosts a brewery and multiple fish & chip shops. If you’re after some local handmade gifts & crafts, a trip to the Fremantle Markets is always great value.
