Fremantle Tourist Walks

Fremantle is a unique little coastal city nestled on the banks of the Swan River and the shores of the Indian Ocean. As one of the oldest settlements in Australia it is full of historic buildings and signficant landmarks. As time went by Fremantle welcomed various groups of settlers that added their own identity to the melting pot that makes Fremantle the place it is today.


My aim with this series is to showcase Fremantle, a place I call home, with a fun way to explore the sights and also get some exercise under your belt. Pack up the car with the kids, the dog and a sense of adventure and head to the greater Fremantle area.

Located south of Fremantle Public Golf Course on Montreal St, there is plenty of parking available for visitors. Entry is via one of several paths down to the paved circuit that forms the basis of the park. Right next to Montreal St is a small skate park for the kids and immediately available is access to a grassed area and BBQ facilities.


Just out of the city centre of Fremantle and along the banks of the Swan River you will find a picturesque stretch of pathway snaking its way along the edge of the river. This popular recreational area is loved by locals and for good reason. With the Swan River always in view, boats sailing by and plenty to keep you, the kids and the dog occupied along the way, this is a great way to spend an hour or two.

Fremantle is one of the oldest cities in Australia and its rich history means there is plenty of interesting things to do and see. Whether you after a delicious bite to eat, a great coffee, local arts & crafts or just like wondering around fascinating old buildings then Fremantle is for you. It may not be a large urban centre but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for with an abundance of character, charm and culture. 

Across the Swan River from the previous walk we did in East Fremantle is the busy suburb of North Fremantle. North Fremantle is very special to me as when I first moved out of home this was the place I landed. Part of this walk was my old running track and I'm happy to share what is a stunning location with everyone. While North Fremantle is quite a high traffic area it isn't long before everything calms down and you can take in the peace and quiet of your surrounds.
