Project overview

The Department has outlined plans to significantly improve facilities for penholders at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour (FFBH) with a multi-million dollar project that will provide a range of benefits for harbour users.   

A key element of the project will see the construction of dedicated penholder amenities including shower, bathroom and laundry facilities and BBQ.

The new building, at the western end of Capo D’Orlando Drive, requires a small land reclamation to be undertaken to provide space for the new building.

The reclamation work provides an opportunity to upgrade fire and other services to the area at the same time.

The improved facilities at the harbour will add to its significant appeal as a very convenient place to pen a vessel with easy access to Rottnest Island and the Swan River.
