Settled by colonists and convicts in 1829, Fremantle has transformed its infamous historical buildings into cultural centers.
Venture out of the city with trips to Scarborough Beach (in Scarborough), Perth (Kings Park & Botanic Garden, The Perth Mint, & more) and Rockingham Beach (in Rockingham). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Fremantle Prison, examine the collection at The Shipwreck Galleries, take in the architecture and design of The University of Western Australia, and kick back and relax at Cottesloe Beach.

For other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Fremantle road trip site .
