Fremantle’s History

Fremantle has a rich history that dates to the 1600s when Dutch explorers visited the area. Fremantle was settled by the Swan River colonists in 1829. In 1884 Fremantle harbor was opened for commercial shipping and as a result, transformed the port into a bustling trade center! In 1929 Fremantle was declared a city and played a crucial role in World War II as the most extensive submarine base in the Southern Hemisphere. After the war, immigrants from Europe and Italy resided in Fremantle and helped shape Fremantle’s character into what we know today! Fremantle is certainly a unique area in Perth due to its well-preserved Victorian and Edwardian streetscapes and convict-era heritage! Due to Fremantle’s warm feel the Fremantle Chocolate shop was opened in Perth, Fremantle!


The original inhabitants of the land were the Whadjuk Noongar people who called the area Walyalup. Fremantle is a place of ceremonies, significant cultural practices and trading for the local Noongar people. Manjaree was an important meeting place and above all it was a prominent trading place for Whadjuk and other Noongar.
