Day 2 saw us, um, oversleeping a little resulting in us having to take a train down to the port city of Fremantle instead of one of the local cruise ships.
Only 30 minutes away by train from Perth Central train station, Fremantle is unofficially regarded as Western Australia’s second capital. Unlike Perth, Fremantle’s period architecture has largely been preserved since there has never been much economic benefit from knocking them down.
What struck me upon arriving was how empty the city was. Granted, it was Boxing Day and most people were probably indoors rather than roaming the streets, but it did feel awfully like a ghost town while walking down some of the streets.
