High Street Fremantle..



The city of Fremantle is renowned for it's well preserved architectural heritage. For anyone with a love of heritage buildings a walk along High Street (tres informative link) is a visual delight. No 1 High St. the Fremantle Municipal Tramways building above, now home to Chalkys where we had breakfast, there's something quite special about breakfasting in a heritage building :) Below looking back up to the Roundhouse built in 1830, the first permanent building built in the Swan River Colony. The High St. Link above gives a good description of the buildings along the way..


Did I mention that these buildings are all on the left hand side as you walk down High St., the next time we're there I'll snap the gorgeousness that is on the right side :) Below looking back up to the Round House. What do you think, pretty fab oui! Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  6. These are all buildings with great character. Some of them might be identifiable as banks and hotels, but no way of knowing what they are now.

  10. Some of our best preserved towns were preserved because they were unfashionable and there wasn't a profit to made by knocking down old buildings to put up new ones. I suspect this is the case up to a point with Fremantle.

  14. There may be no place else that looks like this. So British, yet so sun-blasted and baked. Maybe there is something comparable in India.
