Roundhouse - Review
The Roundhouse is the oldest building in Fremantle, dating back to 1831. It has been used for a variety of purposes since then and is now open for visitors who want a slice of history. Try to reach before 1:00 pm when the’ dropping of the ball’ ceremony takes place. That is the highlight of the visit to Roundhouse. Underneath the building, there are tunnels made of sandstone that have a intriguing history as a place used to capture whales.

Roundhouse, Fremantle Reviews
Worthwhile place to visit while strolling around Fremantle. Nicely restored and staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. Beautiful outlook over the Indian Ocean and the waterfront precinct. Don't miss the 1pm canon and time ball. They use real gunpowder so bring ear plugs and stand back.
The oldest building still standing in Western Australia. It’s a well maintained building with stunning views of the ocean and Fremantle. Entry is a gold coin donation and the friendly tour guides will answer all your questions. Definitely worth visiting👍
This historic building has a great view towards the city of Fremantle as well as the marina and beach. It is well worth the visit.
Great place to visit the people are great and give you a good insight into the history of the place. You have a great view of the ocean one side and down the street the other side which shows of a quirky design painted on the buildings
Great view of the sea. Cannons are fired evryday at 1 pm. Small museum..Art gallery. Not much else to see apart from that
