The Port of Fremantle has for long been called the Gateway to Australia, being the first port of call for post-war immigrants from Europe. The first free settlers arrived in 1829 but, because of an acute shortage of labour, convicts were sent to the colony from the 1850s. They set about building their own prison which is, today, a major heritage site. There are many historic buildings from this era: the old Commissariat Store is now the superb Maritime Museum, the famous old Gothic-style Asylum is now the Fremantle Art Centre.
In 1987 Fremantle was home to the first non-American defence of the Americas Cup. Today, the sea provides local delicacies for Fremantles many restaurants.
