Western Australia Trip - Pt 1

The first few days of our trip were spent in Fremantle where I had my writer's conference. Before the conference, we had time to do some sightseeing.

We started off with Fremantle Prison, built as a convict barracks in the 19th Century and remained in use until 1991. We took a guided tour - very interesting stories, although we had to dodge the rain showers!

Next we visited the Fremantle Round House, the oldest building still standing in WA. It was originally the prison until Fremantle Jail was built, then used as a police lockup and living quarters for the chief constable.

We also had time for taking in the harbour views, and eating fish and chips and gelato on the foreshore.

and walks around the township.

Hubby and Billy did various things while I was at the conference, like going to the markets and a football (AFL) match, until finally, the conference was over and we picked up our new home. The adventure had kicked off in earnest!
