Sharpen the kids’ word sleuth skills with the #Freo_Babble hunt, visit the museums, hire a bike - here's our top ten free things to do with the kids. 1. Transportation Exhibition at Fremantle Prison In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Hougoumont, the last convict ship to arrive in Australia, Fremantle Prison’s new exhibition Transportation examines the forced migration of convicts from Britain to Australia in the 18th and 19th centuries. 2. #Freo_Babble letter sleuth game Pick up a #Freo_Babble map from Fremantle Visitor Centre, WA Shipwrecks Museum or Oxfam or download and collect the letters from Freo businesses to make out the mystery song title. You could win fabulous prizes including a $500 shopping spree. 3. Visit the shipwrecks at WA Shipwrecks Museum Recognised as the foremost maritime archaeology museum in the southern hemisphere and housed in a 1850s-era Commissariat building the galleries house hundreds of relics from ships wrecked along WA's treacherous coastline, including the original timbers from the Batavia (wrecked in 1629), the de Vlamingh plate, and also countless artefacts from the Dutch shipwrecks Zuytdorp, Zeewijk and Vergulde Draeck. 4. Free bike hire from Fremantle Visitor Centre This free bike hire service with bikes for adults and kids (8+ years) operates from the Fremantle Visitor Centre in Kings Square. Bikes can be used anywhere in the Fremantle area. There are a limited number of bikes available for hire so arrive early to avoid disappointment. Read our South Beach to Leighton cycling blog for bike ride ideas. 5. Take a spin at the Esplanade Youth Plaza Pack up the kid’s skateboards, scooters or roller skates and spend an afternoon at one of the most popular skate facilities in the metro area. There’s also places to try ping pong, rock climbing, slack-lining and parkour and the playground adjacent to the plaza has swings and a giant climbing frame. Bring a picnic or grab a bite to eat from nearby cafés and restaurants all within walking distance. 6.

Bird watching around Fremantle Get to know the species of birdlife around Freo. Download a copy of the Birdwatching around Fremantle guide and challenge the kids to spot an Australasian darter or a Wilson’s Storm Petrel. 10. Swan River, beaches, parks and playgrounds Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that create the best memories and Fremantle has amazing outdoor spaces for the kids to run around... skimming stones under the traffic bridge, collecting shells at South Beach or a picnic beside the lake at Booyeembara Park, here's some of the best spots. After you’ve exhausted the kids there are plenty of kid friendly places to pick up lunch or a drink (the nature play area behind Moore & Moore and Paper Bird Children's Books and Arts is a favourite). Our school holiday program has some great coupon offers from local businesses and don’t forget to tag @fremantlestory on Instagram–we’d love to see what you get up to.
