First settled in 1829, Freemantle has a long and interesting history and was one of the first colonies in Australia that was not made up of convicts. At first, just a small town with not much significance, the entrance to the harbour was deepened in the late 19th century, making it an ideal port for commercial shipping. Enjoy the freedom to explore all the beauty and maritime culture of Fremantle in your car rental.
Fremantle serves as the major port for Western Australia and has been utilised in both world wars, particularly World War II, when over 150 US, British and French submarines were based there. The Western Australian Maritime Museum offers a great insight into the history of shipping in the area, and the connection Fremantle has retained with boating. Drive your hire car down to Victoria Quay to check out part of the port and the museum, and this is also the main departure point for ferries heading to Rottnest Island.
Rottnest Island is a short boat trip from Fremantle and is a unique island escape, visited by locals and travellers from overseas alike. The island is a protected environment free of cats and foxes and is a refuge to the Quokkas, a very rare and endangered Australian marsupial. The island has over 60 pristine beaches and bays perfect for swimming and snorkelling, and there are several salt lakes throughout the island also, which can often have a pink colour, providing a magnificent sight.
Back on the mainland, there are plenty of great attractions for visitors to Fremantle. Drive your hire car over to Finnerty st, where you will find The Fremantle Museum and Arts Centre. The museum was previously a mental asylum and houses a large collection of items from the area's early history. Another place to get an idea of early life is the Round House, which was originally a prison, and now functions as a museum and information centre for visitors. The building itself is one of the oldest in Western Australia.
