I attend Fremantle Arts Centre at least once a year taking classes and workshops. Highly recommended with informative, professional and knowledgeable teachers.

This imposing and beautiful old building, with alleged resident ghost, is home to art galleries now. Take a stroll and enjoy a cuppa or lunch in the walled garden.

A tour of this Iconic building is a must when in Fremantle. The free Fremantle Bus runs past this building every 15 to 20 minutes. It has a great cafe for you to have breakfast or lunch daily and gift shop. Great bands perform there...More

Went there this morning. Receptionist never lifted her head from computer to say all galleries were closed as they were preparing for new exhibition. Sign outside stated Arts Centre open. Visitors from Scotland not impressed with their reception at this venue.

The 1860's building and gardens worth a visit alone give its expansive stone design. Garden was delightful quiet respite as small children streamed in for art classes. Art itself ranged from modern and local, experimental, to some classic 19th century European. Will depend on exhibits...More

Possibly depends upon what is on exhibit. During our visit is was a waterworks exhibition, which was interesting enough but not necessarily everyone's taste, and an "art centre" in the broadest terms of art. Don't think art gallery. The shop has some nice stuff, but...More
