Downtown weekend getaway

13 October 2021

Spoil yourself with a luxurious getaway for two in Fremantle. Staying at one of Fremantle’s downtown hotels offers easy access to the newest restaurants and chic small bars.

DAY 1 | Afternoon

Checking in at one of the many hotels in the heart of the city with Freo right outside the front door.

DAY 1 | Evening

Your getaway weekend starts with a sunset sail aboard a luxury sailing catamaran Charter 1* which departs from Cicerello’s Jetty at Fishing Boat Harbour.

DAY 1 | Dinner

A restaurant booking for 8 pm will give you plenty of time for an evening stroll past your hotel along Essex Street and to the Cappuccino Strip on South Terrace. 

Fremantle’s hospitality renaissance means there’s plenty of choice. Try the beautifully restored Tonic and Ginger at The Old Synagogue. Squeeze in a sneaky nightcap at the downstairs speakeasy bar, L’Chaim. 

DAY 2 | Morning

When you’re ready for coffee, head to Duck Duck Bruce on Collie Street, it’s one of several spots in the Downtown area of Fremantle receiving rave reviews as a top place for weekend breakfast-brunch. 

Back to the Esplanade Reserve to get your bearings and a bird’s eye view of the city on the ferris wheel.

DAY 2 | Afternoon

It’s a one o’clock start at the Republic of Fremantle Gin School* where you’ll learn all about the world’s best gin. 

Carrying your 500ml bottle of custom-distilled gin it’s back to the hotel for some down time ready to explore the city at golden hour.

DAY 2 | Evening

We start the evening with an elegant aperitif and tapas style treats at Strange Company on Bannister Street.

DAY 2 | Dinner

Make your way to South Terrace and turn right to walk past Gino’s and Dome Cafe. At the Sail & Anchor Hotel on your left turn left to enjoy dinner for two at Emily Taylor*, part of the stunning Warders Hotel on Henderson Street.

For a taste of live and local music try the Aardvark basement bar underneath the Norfolk Hotel or Freo.Social further north along Parry Street. Both will be a hop, skip and a jump from your hotel.

DAY 3 | Morning

Fremantle Markets is the perfect spot for a leisurely wander on a Sunday morning. Pick up some fresh bread and grocery treats to take home. There are great breakfast spots lining South Terrace and out in The Yard.
