The E Shed cargo store is now a market but has been a part of Victoria Quay, Fremantle, for almost 100 years and it has an unusually high standard of detailing for a wharf facility. It is the only waterfront market in Western Australia.
Victoria Quay, is a landmark industrial urban landscape and townscape, comprising a wharf structure with berths, transit and work sheds, jetties and slipways, and associated South Mole and Inner Harbour. The place has national significance as the first landfall and entry point for tens of thousands of migrants to Australia. It is rare as a mostly intact surviving late 19th century port, linked to a similarly intact 19th century town, which together represent heritage of an international gold exploitation venture.
