Fremantle Round House Scenic Virtual Tour

The Round House in Fremantle is the oldest public building in Western Australia. It served as a gaol to lock up locals who broke the law. This attraction is open daily between 10.30 am and 3.30 pm. The grounds around the Round House remain open throughout the day. There are views of Bathers Beach and the Fremantle Harbour from the canon in front of the Round House. The canon is fired at 1 pm every day to signal the correct time to navigators guiding ships to enter the harbour. Sunsets can be particularly dramatic. Under the Round House is the Whalers Tunnel which leads to Bathers Beach. Worth a visit just after sunset.
