Day 14: Perth – Fremantle – Perth (Part 2)

You can read the first part of this post here.

After looking at the central business area of Fremantle, we caught the Blue Cat around to the area surrounding the Fremantle Sailing Club. The sights didn’t look as spectacular from ground level as they had from the bus but Himself managed to get some photos of the number of boats stored around the sailing club.

From the sailing club, we walked to the fishing boat harbour.

We both loved these two sculptures on the wharf near a commemorative wall which held a list of names of those that built the fishing industry in Fremantle.

and from there to the “Round House”, the oldest public building in Western Australia. It was built as a gaol and was in use for more than fifty years during the nineteenth century.
