Artist's Description

#Fremantle Architecture 2#

5 Mouat Street Fremantle

Fremantle, as it is known today, officially ‘began’ in April 1829 when the ship HMS Challenger arrived in the waters off the Western Australian coast near the mouth of the Swan River and formally ‘took posession’ of the land which was then named “New Holland” for King George the 4th of England. Close thereafter Captain James Stirling (portrait below) arrived from England to begin the Swan River Colony of Perth (in 1829). It was Captain Stirling who named the port settlement ‘Fremantle’ after Captain Fremantle, the captain of the HMS Challenger.
