The South side of the tracks
When someone suggests Fremantle, images of Little Creatures, the Café strip or Fish and Chips may come to mind. Yet five minutes down the road, South Fremantle exists. Often the forgotten sister suburb of Fremantle, the South avoids the heavy crowds and tourist traps of thriving Fremantle and embraces a relaxed, easy-going vibe that exudes character.

South Fremantle hosts a variety of trendy cafes, small grocers and charming terrace houses that sit close to the walking path. Amongst the old houses, accommodation for tourists are scattered around, including eco-friendly housing demonstrating the general vibe of the area. Many walls are plastered with impressive artwork, including a reproduction of a café strip on a blank rendered wall.

The South Fremantle beach has a large grassed area for activities, barbecues, cafes and plenty of parking. The beach is away from the main street and the water is usually calm and clean. This makes it perfect for families or individuals that are trying to escape the crowds of busy Fremantle.

South Fremantle has slowly been building momentum as a place to go for cafes, beach and relaxing as it draws from the central Fremantle crowds. By the looks of things, it will continue to grow and extend on the already desirable atmosphere.

South Fremantle is often over looked by tourists and locals however, as a trendy spot for a relaxed and casual vibe, this is the place to be whether it be by yourself, with friends or with family.
