Locally referred to as Freo, the city of Fremantle is a breath of fresh air. Laid back, colourful and creative, the port city has long been a favourite with barefoot hippies, young families, aspiring musicians and eccentric retirees alike. The city’s main drag serves up a chic coffee culture, while the weekend markets are a great place to pick up everything from locally grown fruit to handcrafted souvenirs. For Aussie Rules Football fans, donning a purple Dockers jersey is a Freo rite of passage.
Thanks toa lack of development during the 20th century, the streets of Fremantle are still lined with majestic Victorian and Edwardian buildings, making it one of Perth’s most treasured heritage areas with a vibrant personality to match. Just minutes from the city centre is the Fremantle foreshore, where craft breweries, wooden boardwalks and seafood restaurants enchant tourists, locals and seagulls alike.

No matter where you book accommodation in Fremantle, you’ll likely be close to great bars and restaurants, on the Cappuccino Strip. This is a coastal neighbourhood in Western Australia, part of the Perth-metropolitan area, so there’s always plenty of locally caught seafood on offer. Clancy’s Fish Pub has been one of the city favourites since the mid 1990s. Darling Darling is another great place, built to simulate the below-deck bar of an old ship. For an upmarket bar that also serves good food, visit Marine Lounge Bar. Other trendy places for a couple of drinks are L’chaim and Mr Chapple, the latter being a funky rooftop bar. For a good ol’ draught-beer pub, there’s Old Faithful & BBQ Fremantle. You can also head to Metropolis Fremantle, with its eight bars, or HUGOS Club, the city’s premier late-night venue.
