Located at the mouth of the Swan River, Fremantle is bounded by stunning beaches and limestone cliffs, and is a major port for Western Australia, for both world-class competition and commercial activity.

The Clipper Race fleet will be berthed at Fremantle Sailing Club, which overlooks the warm and pristine waters of the Indian Ocean.

Greet the fleet when the Clipper Race arrives in Fremantle and make sure you're free for an open tour of a Clipper 70 vessel.

Feel inspired thanks to a behind-the-scenes look at the Clipper Race from a circumnavigator.

Be there as the Clipper Race departs Fremantle and starts the all-Australian leg.

The first Europeans arrived in 1829, while the heritage of the Whadjuk Nyoongar Aboriginal people goes back tens of thousands of years. This rich past means Fremantle is brimming with museums, historic buildings, and other cultural activities.

Largely thanks to the hot, dry climate, which is tempered by the afternoon sea breeze known affectionally to locals as the ‘Fremantle Doctor, much of life in Fremantle occurs outdoors. And the perfect place to indulge in some al fresco dining is on the legendary Cappuccino Strip in the city centre. The cafes and resident baristas will satisfy coffee lovers, and it is also the perfect place for an ice-cold glass of Western Australian wine or craft beer.

Australian Rules Football is the religion of Western Australia, and you can spot a true local by their devotion to the Fremantle Football Club.

Over 70 parks and reserves, including native bush land and beach parks, are scattered across the city and can best be seen by the cycle paths which line the southern side of the Swan River.
