Fremantle Arts Centre Australia, Perth

Fremantle Arts Centre

Fremantle Arts Centre is a multi-arts organisation, offering a program of exhibitions, residencies, art courses and music in a historic building complex on Ord Street Fremantle, Western Australia.

The building complex was built using convict labour between 1861 and 1868 and was used as a psychiatric hospital, initially called the Fremantle Lunatic Asylum, and later known as the Asylum for the Criminally Insane.

It is located opposite the Fremantle Leisure and Aquatic Centre and also near two schools: John Curtin College of the Arts (formerly John Curtin High School) and CBC Fremantle.
