Easy Breezy Freo

The Fremantle Markets shield

Admire the gold rush legacy of Fremantle’s West End, spotting the items left behind by a hasty thief. Scavenger-hunt style, the answers to the clues are completely visual (spot the actual item, not text), making this walk suitable for the little detectives who aren’t confident with text yet.

(For a longer and more challenging Fremantle puzzle walk that takes in Fremantle’s colonial and convict history as well as its gold rush heritage, check out the original Fremantle detective trail.)
