Fremantle Introduction

Last updated 09 Apr 2021

A few years ago I decided to seek out a new base in Australia after decades abroad. I chose Fremantle. It's a little slice of magic on Western Australia's vast coast. So when this guide comes together in the year ahead, it'll be a real insider's look.

I've recently created a video that explains my infatuation with Freo. If you're thinking of travelling there, it'll give you a little sense of the place.

We'll be adding lots more Fremantle recommendations in the weeks ahead so stay with us.

Due to COVID, I'll be based in Sydney for 2021. Expecting to be back in Fremantle soon though.

That means we don't receive payments in exchange for listings and mostly pay our own way. We’d like tourism to be a positive economic, environmental and cultural force and we believe travellers deserve disclosure from publishers. Spread the word about Rusty Compass, and if you're in Saigon, pop in to The Old Compass Cafe and say hi. It’s our home right downtown on Pasteur St. You can also check out our unique tours of Ho Chi Minh City and Sydney at Make a financial contribution using the link below.
