Freo (West Australian for Fremantle) was the old, original settlement in WA, before Perth developed. Miraculously, many of the old buildings remain and have been well preserved.
Not just individual buildings remain in tact, but whole streetscapes have been saved.
In the downtown area there are beautiful examples of renovated Georgian and Victorian architecture .
Great shops and lots of cafes and bars are scattered about the main part of town.

One of the interesting features of “Freo” is the Little Creatures Brewery. Great beer and food in a fantastic waterfront location.
They even hire out bikes for free to help patrons wobble home
