Fremantle

Fremantle is a fun place to be -  many things to do and see. Whale watching, golf, swimming, lovely restaurants, museums and best of all so many people producing music, art, food and fashion. A hot spot of culture and vibrant creative life.

Fremantle Arts Centre: 
A visit to the grounds of this lovely old building is a must. Fantastic spot to locate just the gift to take home - FOUND at Fremantle! The historic complex is located just opposite the leisure centre on the corner of Tuckfield and James Streets. A short walk across the park from central Fremantle. Enjoy the art exhibitions, cafe and grounds. Free music in the courtyard is a feature of Sunday afternoons through the summer.

Getting around by Public Transport
The Fremantle Central Area Transit Buses (CAT)
One of the easiest ways to get around Fremantle is to use the free and frequent CAT buses (Red and Blue). Buses rus every 10 minutes in a one way route. One bus through the Cappucino Strip down South Terrace to South Beach and then return via Marine Terrace the other through the city to the east and north through central Fremantle - Hop on & Hop off with the interchange at the Fremantle Railway Station. There are also three CAT buses that serve the Perth area.  Perth CAT buses

Activites a Little Further Afield

Rottnest Island Off the coast a short 40 minute ferry trip (ferries from E-shed in the harbour) - visit this delightful holiday spot. See unique animals and birds such as the quokka and osprey. Visit the tunnels and do a historic tour, take a bus around the island, scuba to see wrecks on this sometimes wild coast and the most southerly coral at Little Salmon Bay. No cars allowed or domestic pets such as cats and dogs.

Ballooning Sail quietly above the pastures, fields and the River Avon in a magnificant balloon. Easily reached by a drive from Fremantle to Northam (about 1.5 hours). Experience the fun of coming to rest in a field and helping, both when the balloon is being inflated and then again to pack the balloon away. Forget the internal combustion engine and experience peace, clouds, sky and distant vistas! Enjoy a magnificant breakfast with a celebratory glass of bubbles.

 Penguin Island - dolphins as well! A must do trip. This island, is attached at low tide to the coast, a short 25 km to the south. An interesting and educational day for young and old. See a wide variety of water birds and learn about their habits and the natural ecology of our coastal environment.

Whiteman Park  Fill the day with fun for all the family, trains, native animals, picnic areas with children's playground. Farm activities.

Perth Zoo In South Perth, just off the main road, our world-class zoo is a good day's outing where you can see all the animals of australia and the world. Learn about our involvement with endangered species breeding programs. See all Australian animals in their natural habitat.

Whale Watching and Sailing A chance to see these magnificent mammals pass along our coast as they progress to and fro from their feeding grounds in the Antarctic to the quiet birthing waters in our northern coast. Drift on the briny -at one with nature, only the smell and sound of the ocean and the wind!
