Thanks for taking the time to visit the site of Fremantle History Walking Tour  (FHWT) and I hope you choose to take this informative tour of Fremantle.

When you book this tour you are booking for the History and Heritage Tour and in this tour you will learn about Fremantle’s transformation from the little known colonial port that it was in 1829 to the international city that it is today.

The tour is walked along flat ground at a leisurely pace and takes approximately 2 hrs 15 mins and covers approximately two kms.

Your tour guide Allen, (or Big Al), was born and raised in Fremantle. He is an award winning Fremantle historian and was involved in Fremantle public life during the America’s Cup. He brings these second to none Fremantle credentials to life during this informative tour that features a specially comprised picture folio that shows how Fremantle used to be.

Big Al has been researching and writing about Fremantle’s history for over forty years so many of the tales he tells are unique to this tour. Not that the words you hear are all his, for he also quotes the words of the early settlers which they used to describe Fremantle, or the feelings they held about living in Fremantle.

You will see that the price of this tour is very reasonable and Big Al looks forward to showing you around his home town.
