Have you ever wondered about Claremont's history?
The Town of Claremont has a rich historical heritage. From the first settlers in 1830, the arrival of the convicts in 1850, the first school in 1862, and the railway line in 1881, the community has grown and evolved into the popular, thriving town that we know today.

The Town of Claremont has put together an interesting and informative walking trail, known as the Claremont Town Centre Heritage Trail. Come along and take this popular tour and you can follow in the footsteps of the first Claremont inhabitants, plus it's free.
These self guided walking tours start off at the Claremont Council Chambers, then follow on to the convict well, the war memorial, the old bank, Princess Theatre, the post office, the hotel, the church, Wing Hei's Laundry, and many more places of interest.
It's easy to take one of these Claremont Town Centre Heritage Trail walks. Just download this map and information brochure and start walking. Follow the directions on the map and the bronze plaques in the footpaths as they take you on a journey of discovery.
The free maps are full of interesting information, facts and trivia to make your walk more fun. You can choose to take the shorter walk or the longer walk, either way your journey will finish back at the Claremont Council Chambers and Claremont Park, where your walk began.
There is no time limit, you can do the walking trail at your own pace. There is no limit to how many people can do the walk at one time either, so get your family and friends to join you or take the walk by yourself.
So, head on down to Claremont and enjoy a Claremont Town Centre Heritage Trail self guided walk. It's fun, it's interesting and it's free.
