About the location

It is about a ten minute walk to the train station at North Fremantle with a further ten minute walk to the ocean with its wide beach of fine white sand and minimal tide variation. There is a walkway/cycleway immediately outside our property next to the Swan River which continues along the river`s edge. It is 2km to the Fremantle central area which is adjacent to a substantial port handling containers, vehicle imports. livestock exports and overseas cruise ships. There is also facilities catering for near shore ocean activities including fishing, boating and whale watching. Fremantle has a strong emphasis on retaining/refurbishing old buildings and has a lively cafe scene particularly at weekends. There is a market open at weekends where we buy our fruit and vegies at prices below those charged by supermarkets, and there are numerous stalls selling a wide variety of goods. the place is somewhat quirky.
Perth city is 12km away to the north-east, best reached by train, and has many attractions. Kings Park on an escarpment immediately west of the city is worth a visit.
