Named in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2016, Fremantle is not to be missed. What better way to get under the skin of this quirky city than by exploring its streets by foot?
The tour begins at Fremantle Town Hall. Here you can admire the Italian style architecture of this iconic building, before heading on to the king of alfresco dining - Cappuccino Strip.
As you amble through this charming port city your guide will captivate you with one curious anecdote to the next. Fremantle, otherwise known as ‘Freo’ is celebrated for its multicultural history, and this tour will reveal some of the most fascinating stories of the city’s past.
However, it won’t only be the stories that fire up your imagination. As the tour continues you will catch sight of countless colonial heritage buildings, catapulting you back to nineteenth century Fremantle.
Many of these landmark buildings were built by the thousands of convicts that descended on Western Australia in the 1850s. As you arrive outside the foreboding walls of Fremantle Prison, your guide will treat you to even more enthralling stories, including an account of a group of escaped Irish prisoners.
This tour is guaranteed to give you a real taste of the flavour of Fremantle, and comes highly recommended.
