About Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour and boating guide
The Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is a tourism precinct that also caters to both recreational and commercial fishing vessels. It contains about 200 commercial and recreational pens, fuelling and maintenance facilities, 5 jetties and 3 wharves.
Vehicle access to and from the harbour precinct is via two (2) entry points, being over the Arundel Street Railway crossing and the Capo D'Orlando Drive railway crossing. Vehicle access has now been supplemented with a new street exit only, named Warden Lane, located in the northern harbour precinct directly opposite Cicerello's Restaurant. Capo D'Orlando Drive extends north-westerly, the end of which forms the Southern Land Backed Wharf and the harbour's southern entrance breakwater. The other road, being Mews Road, is the only other road access to harbour tenancies from Capo D'Orlando Drive through to Challenger Harbour and the harbour's northernmost breakwater/s.
FFBH and Challenger harbours comprises approximately 600 plus commercial and recreational pens, 5 jetties (excludes 7 jetties subject to leases), 3 wharves and fuelling facilities, as well as public toilets and car parking. The facilities have also been designed to provide universal access. Pens range in size from 10 m up to 35 m with alongside fingers up to 55 m.

Mooring/pen availability and contacts
Boat pens are available at Department of Transports metropolitan and regional boating facilities providing a secure, convenient option to easily access your favourite boating destination.
The Department of Transport has vacant pens available in both metropolitan areas such as Fremantle and Two Rocks Marina, as well as regional areas including the Mid-West, Southwest and Great Southern.
Pens range in size from 8 to 25 metres. Having your own pen will provide you with a safe and convenient facility for your boat with secure access giving you more time on the water.

The Department of Transport manages boat harbours and other maritime facilities for small craft around the State. Vessel accommodation offered at each maritime facility is different, and may include pens, swing or pile moorings, or a mix of both. There will usually be different size pens or moorings available at each facility, catering for vessels from 6 metres upwards.
