Your adventures begins at the Fremantle Town Hall and rest assured, this walking tour is no boring history lesson, but rather takes a non-traditional route, discovering factual, anecdotal, and downright fascinating local stories.
Renowned for its well-preserved architectural heritage, including colonial buildings and one of the most infamous prisons in the British Empire, the locals here were as hard as nails; salty sea dogs who rubbed shoulders with newly- arrived immigrants to create a town full of characters – some of who's stories you’ll be amazed to hear about from your local guide!
Once home to whaling stations and mass immigration, Freo is now a charming town, which is celebrated for its variety of restaurants and multicultural history. Lunch at a locally owned venue is included in the tour. You'll hear of local tales, such as Irish prisoners escaping, comical British bushrangers, and the shameful expulsion of Indigenous peoples to Rottnest Island.
There is no better way to explore Freo than with a local guide to tell you all its fascinating stories and visit its amazing sites, of which there are many, if you hadn't guessed!
