Walks Around Fremantle

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 significant 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 of local walking trails 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 Fremantle area.
