Fremantle, or 'Freo' as it is usually referred to by locals, is located around 19 kilometres south of Perth, Western Australia. It is situated on the mouth of the Swan River, so acts as the port for the city. It is home to beautiful heritage buildings, great food and drink along the Cappucino Strip and many entertainment options.
