Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Western Australia / Greater Perth / Fremantle / Fremantle History Walking Tour
Take this tour to get a very good feel of how Fremantle has grown from a little colonial port and fishing village in 1829 to the international city that it is today, with it’s well preserved architecture and world listed Heritage Gaol.Make Fremantle History Walking Tour part of your personalized Fremantle itinerary using our Fremantle road trip website.
The tour takes approximately two hours and covers approximately two ks which are walked at a leisurely pace and goes past many of the recognised landmarks of Fremantle.
Allen, (or Big Al), your tour guide was born and raised in Fremantle and has an extensive knowledge of the City so many of the tales that he tells are unique to this tour.
Allen has won the Fremantle Local History Award for unpublished essays on three occasions and two of those essays have been about the old hotels of Fremantle. Many of his tales are about those hotels which were so prominent in the life of Fremantle between 1829 and 1929. So the late afternoon tour is one that includes a couple of hotel stops on its route.
All tours start from the grassed area on Round House Hill, just near the ship artwork. The Round House being the prominent land mark building at the west end of High Street.
Allen hopes you enjoy your visit to Fremantle and he looks forward to being able to tell you more about his home town.

It's easy to be enthusiastic about Freo - the history, the food and brewery scene, the architecture, the street art, the weather, the people - but, hands down, Fremantle Tours should be top of the list. The Walking Tour with Michael was way beyond expectation, one of the most comprehensive introductions to any city I have visited around the world. It was fun, it was culturally sensitive and insightful, it has structured the rest of my time in Fremantle with more depth and understanding of this town's place in history and its future. Besides which, the coffee was amazing and the bar recommendations spot on. Tremendous value. Sign up.
hands down one of the best things I've ever done. I've lived in Freo for 6 years now... I can't believe how much I learnt - so fascinating. Michael and Lucy are so lovely and charismatic. This is a must for any local or traveller. I'll be back for the bike tour and more...
