Perth – Much to See In Fremantle

BY CK Lam

My six-day five-night Perth trip in September 2015 sponsored by Tourism Western Australia and organized by Foodsion 食尚 truly allows me to discover more of the city. My series about Perth will be published on a weekly basis, focusing mainly on the plethora of culinary offerings in Perth’s food spots while also touching briefly on the travel attractions and accommodation.

Fremantle is a bustling port city just 25 minutes away from Perth’s city. Renowned for its market, food and wine scene, there are enough attractions for both the city-dweller and tourists.

One can be easily enchanted by the old-world charm of the city with its plethora of accommodations and interesting shops housed in heritage building with stunning architecture.

We were taken to the Fremantle Market, with 150 stalls housed in the grand old Victorian building. Expect to find vendors offering apparels, handicrafts, cheeses, fresh fruits and local produce, and products from crafty Australian designers. Business days are from Friday till Sunday.

Close to the market is Fremantle Prison, one of Western Australia’s premier tourist attractions. A guided one hour walking tour conducted by Matthew, had us discovering much of the prison’s history. The prison gatehouse is open daily from 9am till 5pm and is free to enter, however tours do come at a cost.

There is more to explore in Fremantle and we made a tour to MANY 6160 building, Australia’s largest temporary space activation project.

This unique venue is a thriving hub of cutting edge retail, and open-plan work space, with many pop-up stores which house a collective of premium quality products and services, including West Australian artists, craftsmen, fashion designers and more.

Cafe life is very happening in Fremantle and a stroll along Freo’s cafe strip is a must. We enjoyed some coffee and hot chocolate drinks at Chocolateria San Churro on Market Street, (an institution for chocolate drinks) besides unearthing nearby hidden street art.
