Travel Review : Fremantle

Welcome to Fremantle (Perth, WA, Australia )

Fremantle, Perth

Fremantle or Freo as it known to locals, is one of my favourite places in the whole of Australia! If not the world!

Artistic. Quiet. Underrated!

The opening statement seems to be quite a large one, let me me back this up with some reasons why this could be one of the greatest towns in the world!

Chilled out town

If you think Australia is laid back, come to ‘Freo The Home of the Laid Back’. This town is chilled because you don’t need to leave it, But If you do;

Want to go to beach, South beach. Want to go to the city there is Perth less than 40 minutes on a train. Don’t want to go to south beach, how about Cottesloe?

This place is not only close to great places, it stands on its own too.

Its streets and building come to life! Check out this Video of Fremantle which was taken by me and Photographed By Daniele calabrese

What is there to see and Do in Fremantle?

With Fremantle having one of the most amounts of historical building ageing back to the 1st ships, There is plently to see!



Built in 1830’s was the old Fremantle Prison.

This building is the oldest building standing in the whole of  western Australia, for a country which lacks history … This place is pretty cool

For a dollar you can go inside and have a look!

But the sites from the round house are little different.

I’m not sure on these lines.

We made a video on the Fremantle’s Roundhouse and The bad weather here.

South Beach

This is one of my favourite places. The beach itself is always so quiet. To be fair most of the beaches in Australia are!

The reason why a quiet beach is great for me, is because I love taking photos.
