Find a place to stay

After dark, central Fremantle comes alive with music, dancing, and drinking. The section of South Terrace from Bannister Street to Parry Street has so many coffee bars it's known as the "Cappuccino Strip." You can drink in historic city pubs, hit the dance floor in the clubs, or take in some live music. Fishing Boat Harbour also remains lively into the small hours.
