Fremantle is Perth's hip and historical cousin with streets full of heritage buildings, cafes, street art and amazing stories waiting to be shared.  Starting at the Fremantle Town Hall, this walking tour is no boring history lesson, but rather takes a non-traditional route, discovering factual, anecdotal and downright fascinating local stories, all as you wander Freo's vibrant cappuccino strip, boat harbour, narrow West End streets and see the landmarks, including the Fremantle Prison and the Roundhouse.

Once home to whaling stations and mass immigration, Freo is now a charming town celebrated for its variety of culture and multicultural history.  The original locals were as hard as nails salty sea dogs who rubbed shoulders with newly arrived immigrants to create a town full of characters – some of whose stories you'll be amazed to hear about from your local guide.  You'll hear tales from prisoner escapes and convict antics to the expulsion of Indigenous peoples to Rottnest Island.  Find out why almost 10,000 men were transported from Great Britain and Ireland, how they built their own prison and helped shape the future of Western Australia.
