The Round House Precinct Information

The Round House Precinct is the oldest surviving public building in Western Australia. It was built as a gaol and was the first permanent building in the colony. It was designed by HW Reveley, the colony's first civil engineer, and built in 1830.

Wander around the Round House and marvel at the diverse uses of this historic building including its initial use as a goal and gaolers residence, it was later used as police lock up, and then as a home for the chief constable, his wife and their 10 children. It is now a popular tourist attraction.

Enjoy the spectacular views from the headland which overlooks the river mouth and has uninterrupted views of Cockburn Sound.

A team of volunteer guides are on duty at the Round House during opening hours. They operate the signal station, fire the time gun and drop the time ball every day at 1.00pm.

The Round House is an integral stop on any self-guided tour discovering Fremantle’s history. The free CAT bus is the easiest way to get around Fremantle and see all of the interesting sights. Fremantle is located just 30 minutes from Perth.
