Fremantle, one of the oldest cities in Western Australia, first settled as a colony in 1829 and was declared a city in 1929. Fremantle is now a large, bustling and very popular city with a population of over 25,000; the port city has a rich and unique history and culture.
The Fremantle Visitors Centre has devised a series of walks and trails in and around Fremantle, which offer walkers an insight into the diverse and exceptional Fremantle area. From the City Centre to Fishing Boat Harbour there are a selection of 11 different walks to choose from, each one taking between two and four hours to complete.
These walks include places of interest, history and beauty some of which most people would not know about and never see. For example the Art & Culture Trail takes you to the many galleries, studios and craft centres in Fremantle, whereas the Writers Walk takes you to many places in Fremantle where local writers either lived or frequented and the Hotels and Breweries Walk (which is considered a Top Trail) takes you to all the pubs, hotels and breweries in Fremantle. With so many to choose from, there is sure to be a walk to interest everyone.
