Fremantle Arts Centre

Housed within an iconic heritage building and beautiful grounds, Fremantle Arts Centre is the City of Fremantles premier arts service and one of the leading arts organisations nationwide. Visit for free exhibitions, a shop selling the finest WA hand-made wares, an expansive live music program, special events, an idyllic cafe and free wifi. Open 7 days.

Located on Finnerty Street, the historic site was originally the first purpose-built lunatic asylum in WA. It has since been a womens home, a naval base during WW1 and WW2 and a technical college before opening as Fremantle Arts Centre in 1972.

The Exhibitions team manage a cutting-edge selection of contemporary arts from practitioners locally, nationally and internationally, with a growing Residencies program running alongside. FAC also manages the Moores Building on Henry Street in the west end.
