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.
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.
People Judge me! If you want to see more check out my Instagram @fsgtravels
Rainbow Container Bridge
Find this Bridge! Its a work of art!
While you are there you will get amazing views of the harbour …There is a couple of bars and coffee shops there. This are could be one of the places in Fremantle for Instagram! Here are a couple of photos I have taken around sunset.
Fremantle Prison an historic building, Go for a tour. See what it was like to be a prisoner.
Or go at night … If your brave enough.
This market place is Gold!
Have a look at our tour, we visit quiet a few stands, All Unique.
So much more to see! This place is only open at the weekends and is a must for visiting Perth!
Little Creatures Brewery
Fancy a beer? Who doesn’t? Why have one when you can have 10 (one cider) they do an awesome tasting tray for $10
This is my thoughts on the beers
Quokkas! That is all.
I will be giving more information on rottenest island in another blog so stay tuned
Freo is known for its quirky things and the food is not different! there is amazing food to try at the Fremantle markets. One of these being Chic Pea Vegan Cafe!
Fantastic food for vegans or even the meat eater wanting a change!
Fremantle YHA Prison
Last but not least my current home Fremantle YHA Prison.
Yes I live in Prison and I love it! It so different, sometimes a little creepy. But awesome!
Fremantle Coffee shops
I have heard rumours that fremantle has some of the best Coffee in the world!
