Fremantle is recognised as the best preserved 19th Century seaport in the world. Over 150 buildings in the port city are classified by the National Trust, These include: The Round House which was built in 1831 & is the oldest public building in W.A, The Esplanade Hotel which was built in 1890s and the Fremantle Prison which was built by convict labour in the 1850s.
Fremantle was establlished in 1829 as a port for the fledgling Swan River Colony and was the major city in Western Australia for much of its early history. Fremantle became a city in its own right by 1929, and survived the building demolitions of the 1890s and the 1960s. The city emerged in 1987 when it was the host city for the Americas Cup sailing challenge, as a city rich in heritage and character.
“Freo” as it is also know to the locals, is home to a 500-strong fishing fleet and a vast number of yachts and pleasure craft. Two significant historical replica ships were built here: The HMS Endeavour and the Duyfken which was the first Dutch vessel to chart the Australian coastline in 1666.
The port city of Fremantle is located at the mouth of the Swan River on the West Coast of Western Australia and is part of the Perth metropolitan area. Perth city is only 20 kms away which is a 25 minute cab ride or 30 minute trip by train.
Fremantle is much more than an architectural time capsule. It provides a unique opportunity for visitors to experience and enjoy a range of cultural activities in a relaxed atmosphere. A browse through the markets or leisurely stop at one of the numerous cafes and restaurants will complement your exploration of the arts, making a visit to Fremantle a rich and rewarding experience.

great location right in the heart of Freemantle
literally a minutes walk to great cafes and restaurants on the cappuccino strip. Clean with comfortable bed and looks just as it is in the photos and very secure. Having a secure car park is a plus. It is fully enclosed, no outside view. Nice and quiet to sleep, except for the buzz in the bathroom but if you close both doors it does not bother you. Remember no wi-fi or hairdryer in this unit in case you were looking to use the wifi to work from the unit.

Great spot to stay in Freo
We really enjoyed the stay. A great location and very comfortable with all the things that were needed. One quirky thing... a really loud buzz in the upstairs bathroom - not connected to the light/fan switch. But we found if we turned off the lights at the main in the kitchen, we lost the noise, which was great for sleeping.

Very poor property give a miss despite location.
Large whole in wall where apparently a previous tenant had fallen through and carpet very dirty. Air conditioning didn't work and to top things off the gas into the apartment had been locked off so no cooking.
