The stunning, portside city of Fremantle is sprinkled with heritage buildings, picturesque coastal and harbour locations and green, open parklands dotted with Norfolk pine trees. Known for its bustling café and cosmopolitan restaurant culture, Fremantle could easily double as a US town or seaside England, with plenty of amenity for visiting production crews.
