The port city Fremantle is a great tourist destination with a rich maritime and cultural heritage. Today, much of the colonial architecture remains, which makes Fremantle a beautiful and historic city. Situated on the popular and busy Fremantle Port, where the Swan River meets the Indian Ocean, Fremantle enjoys a Mediterranean climate.
Fremantle boasts some of the finest shopping, dining, recreational and leisure facilities in Australia. Visit its many museums or stroll through the Cappuccino Strip - or simply enjoy the bustle and hustle of the "Freo" Markets or the Fishing Boat Harbour where the maritime atmosphere of the city can be best appreciated.
I encourage you to register soon and secure your place at ACAL 2009 for what will be an unforgettable event. Why not make a holiday of your trip and bring the family along?
I look forward to welcoming you to Fremantle, Western Australia in October 2009.
