How to Spend 2 Days in Fremantle

How to Spend 2 Days in Fremantle

With two days in Fremantle, you can spend one day immersed in the local scene, and another checking out nearby Perth or Rottnest Island. Here are a few ways to create a 48-hour itinerary in this port town on the southwestern coast.

 

Day 1: Explore local attractions

**Morning:**Get your bearings in Fremantle—aka Freo—on a self-guided audio tour or hop-on hop-off tram tour, both of which allow for independent sightseeing with the added convenience of narration or transportation. For an aerial perspective, go for a spin on the Fremantle Tourist Wheel, near the waterfront.


**Afternoon:**Gain insight into Fremantle’s convict history and Aboriginal heritage—and get some fresh air—on a walking or biking tour of historic and cultural landmarks, such as the UNESCO-listed Fremantle Prison, the Fremantle Markets, the 19th-century Round House, and Esplanade Park.

 

**Night:**Meet locals and other travelers on a bar crawl—your guide will know which hot spots to hit. Alternatively, sign up for an evening photography tour and learn how to capture the sights in the sunset light.

 

Day 2: Discover island activities or big-city sights

**Morning and afternoon:**Just off the coast of Fremantle, Rottnest Island is the Perth area’s crown jewel—a car-free oasis with white-sand beaches, turquoise water made for snorkeling, and gentle hills. Day trips by ferry from Fremantle are popular, so be sure to book in advance. Otherwise, head just north across the Swan River to Perth, Freo’s big sister and Western Australia’s capital. A hop-on hop-off bus whisks you around to main attractions like Kings Park and Botanic Garden, the Perth Cultural Centre, and the Bell Tower and Elizabeth Quay.

 

**Night:**Back in Freo, spend your last evening on a catamaran sail or twilight cruise. Savor the peaceful view of the sunset, and look back at Freo as it lights up for the night. Some excursions include drinks and snacks.
