Fremantle, Western Australia
Fremantle, Western Australia is on Fremantle Harbour at the mouth of the Swan River. It is home to about 25,000 people. The city was named for Cpt. Charles Howe Fremantle, and was declared a city in 1929. It is the same location where Swan River colonists settled in 1829. The town resides on a series of hills made of limestone.
The Nyungar people called the hills ‘booyeembara,’ and ‘gardoo’ is the sandplain to the east. The Aborigines regularly fired the eucalyptus trees in the area. This practice was called fire-stick farming, and it cleared land and trees for easier hunting and the development of crops, such as bush potatoes. Some speculation has been made as to whether this was a purpose-driven practice, or if the burning was an act of nature. Either way, it increased the food available to the indigenous people in their early history.
James Stirling, captain of the HMS Success, explored the coast and gave a favourable report to the British Government. In 1929, Cpt. Fremantle arrived onshore and placed the Union Flag at Arthur Head. Between 1850 and 1868, 280 convicts were incarcerated in Fremantle. In 1897, the Harbour was deepened to accommodate larger ships.
The Maritime Museum is located on Victoria Quay. The themed galleries are the Indian Ocean, naval defence, maritime, trade, fishing, and the Swan River. Artefacts, exhibits, displays, and collections tell the ocean’s important story. The HMAS Ovens is on exhibit at the maritime museum, and is open for guided tours. In nearby Cliff Street, the Shipwreck Gallery is the southern hemisphere’s foremost shipwreck conservation museum. The Gallery’s “wreck trail” has exhibits in what they call a “museum without walls.”
Fremantle Markets are both iconic and eclectic. Founded in 1897, the markets surround visitors and locals with an amazing amount of fresh produce. Much of the produce for sale at the markets is organic. You can find general merchandise and dining in The Hall, then go to The Yard for an espresso. Bakeries, fresh seafood, cheeses, and meats can be found in The Yard as well.
