Set on the Indian Ocean, Fremantle provides the fruits of the sea in its many restaurants, and the cuisine of many nationalities. Visitors love Fremantle's multiculturalism, its picturesque Victorian architecture, the many art galleries and the superb West Australian Maritime Museum. Fothergills is the perfect setting from which to explore this vibrant centre, to relax at nearby beaches, or as a starting point for a tour of WA.

The Port of Fremantle has for long been called the Gateway to Australia, being the first port of call for post-war immigrants from Europe. The first free settlers arrived in 1829 but, because of an acute shortage of labour, convicts were sent to the colony from the 1850s. They set about building their own prison which is, today, a major heritage site. There are many historic buildings from this era: the old Commissariat Store is now the superb Shipwreck Galleries, the famous old Gothic-style Asylum is now the Fremantle Arts Centre.

In 1987 Fremantle was home to the first non-American defence of the America’s Cup. The remarkable yacht, Australia II, with its   revolutionary winged keel, which won the Cup for Australia is found in the Maritime Museum. Susie can assist you with any tourist information you may require.
