Fremantle Port (Western Australia)

ILL POST MORE PICS LATER

The Port of Fremantle is Western Australia's major general-cargo port. It is a sheltered, all weather port situated on the west coast some 20 kilometres from the State capital, Perth.

The Inner Harbour, designed by Irish-born engineer, C.Y. O'Connor and opened on 4 May 1897, is located at the mouth of the Swan River adjacent to the historic City of Fremantle. The Outer Harbour, 20 kilometres further south on the shores of Cockburn Sound was opened on 11 January 1955. Its deepwater bulk port facilities were developed to service the Kwinana industrial area, which expanded rapidly in the 1960s and 70s.

the port has an outer and inner harbour, the outer stretches down to Kwinana

if you want some statistics on Fremantle and other ports around Australia here is a good page
