This unusual old building was the first permanent structure built in the Swan River Colony. Constructed way back in 1831, it's served various functions over the years, including a prison, police lock-up and private residence.

These days, the Fremantle Roundhouse is a museum manned by the Fremantle Volunteer Heritage Guides and is open seven days a week,
from 10.30am until 3.30pm.

There's also a lovely little park just outside the Roundhouse where you can enjoy beautiful views over Bather's Beach - a great spot to relax on a warm sunny day.

Directions: Fremantle Round House is about five to ten minute's walk from Fremantle Railway Station and the local bus terminal. Turn right into Phillimore Street, as you leave the railway station, and walk until you reach Cliff Street, where you turn left. From Cliff Street, turn right into High Street and you'll see it directly ahead of you.

Street parking is sometimes difficult to find in Fremantle, but if you arrive early, especially on a weekday, you may be fortunate enough to find a spot close by.

Fremantle Roundhouse is situated in a beautiful and relatively peaceful part of Freo, amidst a quaint heritage precinct and close to a few lovely little art studios and galleries. A great spot to learn about Fremantle's colourful history, albeit away from the crowds.
