Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Western Australia / Greater Perth / Fremantle / Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour
Though a commercial marina, Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is pretty spectacular in its own right. See where large fishing boats dock and discover what makes the fishing industry tick. The harbor was built in 1919, but remains an important part in the city’s development today. A few years ago, up to 120 fishing boats were housed in the harbor. Be sure to take a look at the boat-lifting facility. What was before a fish market is now a modern tourist precinct, with restaurants and breweries. Art installations floating at the water make for a memorable photo opportunity, as does the statue of Bon Scott, front man of Australian band ACDC. Try the fish and chips at one of the restaurants or walk over to the Big Wheel for some family entertainment. Add Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour and other attractions to your Fremantle trip itinerary using our Fremantle road trip planning website.

Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour reviews
It's a fishing boat harbour. Water and boats. And seagulls. Nice in places, a bit grubby in others. Some nice eating venues. more »
Great food with fresh fish on your doorstep, lots of choice in where you’ll dine. Yes it’s laid back but that’s the best part. Good cold beers at Little creatures brewery and great staff. Short walk.... more »
Definitely a place you should drop by in the evening if you're visiting Fremantle, WA. Great place for pictures and of course, dinner (check out the pictures I enclosed!). If you're driving, there are 2 place you can park, but note that the carpark on the inner side closer to the harbour is accessible from across the Esplanade Hotel - because of the train tracks.
Lovely to walk around but a bit of a tourist trap with regards to fish and chips. Nice to have a beer at Little Creatures and enjoy the outdoors.
