Fremantle – Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2016 – a top 10 City!
“Fishing Boat Harbour is Fremantle’s culinary crux: an arc of seafood eateries tracing the waterline, with something for all budgets.” [Lonely Planet]
The world-renowned travel publication Lonely Planet has selected Fremantle as the only Australian city on its list and we came in ahead of Manchester (UK), Rome (Italy) and Nashville (USA) as cities that were ‘unmissable’ places to visit in 2016.
Fremantle is further described as “a raffish harbour town with sea-salty soul to burn…as in any port, the world washes in on the tide and washes out again, leaving the locals buzzing with global zeitgeist. It’s a delicious process, and nowhere in Australia does it better. Fremantle thrums with live-music rooms, hipster bars, boutique hotels, left-field bookshops, craft-beer breweries, Indian Ocean seafood shacks, buskers, beaches and students on the run from the books.”
