The first gaol. Good views over the town, beach and harbor and an interesting part of Fremantle History

Can't miss this one. If you time it right, you can set off the 1pm gun to calibrate the ships' instruments. Was the first prison in Freo

The Round House was the first permanent building built in the Swan River Colony. Built in late 1830 and opened in 1831, it is the oldest building still standing in Western Australia.

The Round House (the first public building in WA) is also quite popular and the cannon is fired at 1.00pm daily.
