Fremantle Hotel & Accommodation

An alluring mixture of new and old, Fremantle lies at the mouth of the Swan River and is one of Western Australia's most historic and beautiful cities.

Part of the Perth metropolitan area, just 25km from the city, Fremantle is a 4-5 hour flight from Sydney or Melbourne.

Affectionately known as 'Freo' by the locals, Fremantle is full of personality and visitors will immediately notice its vibrant city lifestyle. A tourist hotspot in Western Australia, there is Fremantle accommodation to suit groups travelling on a wide range of budgets.

The city is renowned for its well-preserved architectural heritage with many clusters of convict-era buildings, a historic old jetty and sea port. Over 150 buildings in the port city are classified by the National Trust, making any self-guided or city tour an enthralling trip back in time.

Visitors to Fremantle usually come for one thing: history. It's easy to see why, with so many historic sites tracing back Australia's rich colonial history.

The Round House, atop Arthur Head, is the oldest public building in Western Australia and one of Australia's most famous convict-era attractions, dating back to 1830s. The Fremantle Prison is also worth visiting, today the most intact remaining convict establishment in Australia.

Fremantle also contains the foremost maritime archaeology museum in the southern hemisphere, The Shipwreck Galleries. Housed in 1850s-era heritage building, the galleries contain relics from ships wrecked along the coastline of Western Australia and many other traces of Australia's deeply fascinating maritime history.

For something different, stop by the Fremantle Arts Centre, a multi-arts organisation housed within beautiful grounds consisting of several heritage buildings. With numerous free exhibits, live music events and special events hosted here throughout the year, you're bound to find something of interest on the program.

With so much history on display, it's easy to ignore Fremantle's natural beauty, perhaps best displayed at the stunning South Beach, where you can simply stare out at idyllic views of the Indian Ocean.

Fremantle also boasts some of the best food and wine Western Australia has on offer. The city hosts a number of Italian and Asian eateries and seafood is incredibly popular in the region. The beloved 'Cappuccino Strip' in South Terrace is known for its praised alfresco dining options.
