Fremantle is recognised as the best preserved 19th Century seaport in the world. Over 150 buildings in the port city are classified by the National Trust, These include: The Round House which was built in 1831 & is the oldest public building in W.A, The Esplanade Hotel which was built in 1890s and the Fremantle Prison which was built by convict labour in the 1850s.

Fremantle was establlished in 1829 as a port for the fledgling Swan River Colony and was the major city in Western Australia for much of its early history. Fremantle became a city in its own right by 1929, and survived the building demolitions of the 1890s and the 1960s. The city emerged in 1987 when it was the host city for the Americas Cup sailing challenge, as a city rich in heritage and character.

“Freo” as it is also know to the locals, is home to a 500-strong fishing fleet and a vast number of yachts and pleasure craft. Two significant historical replica ships were built here: The HMS Endeavour and the Duyfken which was the first Dutch vessel to chart the Australian coastline in 1666.

The port city of Fremantle is located at the mouth of the Swan River on the West Coast of Western Australia and is part of the Perth metropolitan area. Perth city is only 20 kms away which is a 25 minute cab ride or 30 minute trip by train.

Fremantle is much more than an architectural time capsule. It provides a unique opportunity for visitors to experience and enjoy a range of cultural activities in a relaxed atmosphere. A browse through the markets or leisurely stop at one of the numerous cafes and restaurants will complement your exploration of the arts, making a visit to Fremantle a rich and rewarding experience.

Beds per head.

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was as advertised and extremely convenient being right in the heart of Fremantle. However, the owner's request for more money because three people had used three beds (instead of two using the double bed) after we left, really soured our holiday.

Owner's Response: This guest made a booking for 1 couple and 1 child therefore it was natural to query if an extra guest had stayed.

Great Property in an Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the Pakenham Palace apartment, being right in the heart of Fremantle, the location is perfect - walking distance to everything!! The apartment is lovely with a great layout. It is open and light with a dining area and comfortable lounge room downstairs and a very comfy bed upstairs! The kitchen is nice and modern as are the bathrooms. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I loved Fremantle and the location of the apartment was fantastic, walking distance to everything. The apartment was cosy and glad you had the split system in the main bedroom as the room heats up. Only one suggestion would be to put block out blinds on the bedroom window, but minor issue.

Great location!!! Close to everyting!!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Pakenham Palace. It is close to places of interest which is within walking distance. The apartment is clean as well. We only wish if there is a portable heater for the bedroom or living will be great. As it is rather cold in Freo during sping around 12-14deg, winter will be freezing.

Owner's Response: I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at Pakenham Palace Ms Tan. A large reverse cycle air conditioner is provided in the living area and the master bedroom to heat or cool the apartment depending on the season.
