1. Helicopter Flight

Location:8 Bell Court, Jandakot Airport

It’s all well and good exploring the region via boat, bus, Segway or foot, but add in the chance to take to the skies and you’ve truly experienced the best of Fremantle. Local operator Rotorvation has the skills to take you up and over the Fremantle region for the ultimate aviation experience. In their helicopters, you’ll be able to take in incredible views of Fremantle and the surrounding region for a total of 15 minutes. Flights take off from Jandakot Airport which is around 17 kilometres away from Fremantle and 20 kilometres out of Perth. So if you have a love for amazing experiences and great photo opportunities then this experience should already be on your radar, if you weren’t aware there were scenic helicopter flights over the Fremantle region, you’re in for a treat!

2. Fremantle Markets

Location:South Terrace & Henderson Street, Fremantle

For all things crafted, fresh and fun head to Fremantle Markets, one of the city’s, and perhaps the country’s, most recognisable marketplaces. In operation since 1897, the Fremantle Markets are now home to more than 150 stall holders selling a range of goods including handmade crafts, clothing and jewellery as well as fresh fruit and vegetables and ready to eat food. The markets are open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and on Public Holidays from 8 am to 8 pm, so there is plenty of time to browse all of the stalls, pick up a few groceries and grab a delicious bite to eat or something to drink.

3. WA Maritime Museum

Location:Victoria Quay, Peter Hughes Drive, Fremantle

If there’s any attraction that stands as a symbol of the region’s history, then it’s the WA Maritime Museum on the shoreline of the Indian Ocean. Showcasing artefacts and exhibits reflective of Fremantle’s past, present and future, the museum is a great attraction that all ages will enjoy. The museum is open to the public 7 days a week from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and Good Friday, with shortened hours on ANZAC Day.

4. Segway Tour

Location:2 Marine Terrace, Fremantle

What’s better than walking around and taking in the sights of a city? Zipping around on a Segway and taking in the sights of course! Thanks to Segway Tours WA you can tick riding a Segway off your bucket list while also ticking off seeing some of Fremantle’s best sights! There’s the choice of a 1-hour or 1.5-hour Segway tour, both of which are led by an experienced Segway rider and tour guide who is on hand to point out the city’s top attractions including St Patrick’s Basilica, Fremantle Prison, Phillimore Street and The Round House.

5. Fremantle Prison

Location:1 The Terrace, Fremantle

Fremantle Prison is one of the region’s most iconic historical attractions, and being an operating prison from 1852 to 1991, it’s fair to say these walls would have some stories to tell. You can take a tour of the prison to learn about its history, hear tales of some of the prisoners that were locked behind the gates and walk the worn pathways between buildings. There are numerous tours available, each highlighting different features of the prison’s past. There’s the Doing Time tour, Great Escapes, Tunnels Tour, Torchlight Tour, and the Art Tour, each tour touches on different points in time but all talk about things that happened inside the walls of, or underneath, this iconic prison.
