Family friendly

02 June 2021

Fremantle holds a special place in the hearts of generations of families who have been gathering for seaside picnics, school trips, Sunday lunches and icecreams. It’s a picturesque city by the sea ready for magical adventures.

Spellbinding puppet shows, an incredible circus, intriguing street buskers, unbelievable tales of pirates and shipwrecks and giant street murals are all waiting for you to discover in Fremantle.

World class museums, a ride with a view on the ferris wheel, a movie or an afternoon at Timezone or Escape Hunt are on the list of things to do. And spaces like Esplanade Youth Plaza for climbing, jumping, scootering and skating make it easy to linger longer.

There are escapades for small feet around every street corner, play spaces in cafe courtyards, sandcastles to build and ancient shorelines to explore.

The city’s restaurants serve up classic favourites for all kinds of eaters. Babycino and unending varieties of ice cream flavours are the order of the day.

Century old markets, Aladdin’s cave bookshops and retail stores are a delight for children to discover along historic high streets, malls and piazza. Find special places to pick up a holiday trinket, a new fairy tale or favourite treasure.

There’s always plenty to do in Fremantle and school holiday breaks add an extra buzz to the daytime city. Check out things to do with families and kids
