Proudly brought to you by the City of Fremantle, as part of the Fremantle Heritage Festival 2014, and presented by the Fremantle Volunteer Heritage Guides Association, this event will give visitors a unique chance to walk in the footsteps of our early colonial ancestors.

Take a revealing walk around Fremantle, following the footprints of Western Australia's early settlers. Learn about the life-style and hardships they encountered as the new settlement expanded.

This interesting tour will meet, and depart, from The Fremantle Roundhouse, at the east end of the Whalers Tunnel.

Opened in 1831 the Fremantle Roundhouse is the oldest public building in WA. Originally built as a prison, it has had many uses over the years including a Police Lock-Up, Accommodation for Water Police, and a Storage Facility.

The Fremantle Volunteer Heritage Guides are a friendly group who help to guide visitors to the Fremantle Roundhouse and during activities associated with it.

For further information about the Footprints in the Sand event, visit the City of Fremantle website or phone 9337 6525.
