If there is one thing better than saving money on Fremantle accommodation, it’s saving money while staying there. That said, there are several ways you can go about saving money while on vacation at a Fremantle accommodation. One sure way of saving money while on a vacation is going for free or low priced activities.
Once you’re done paying for baggage, airfares, taxis, hotel rooms or a rental car, the last thing you would want to do is spend your money on overpriced local or tourist activities. Doing so will only leave you with a huge bill after your vacation. This in mind, below you’ll find 6 free things you can do while at a Fremantle accommodation.
Visit Fremantle Museums
When someone mentions a museum, many associate it with stuffy old hangouts for old people. On the contrary, museums of today have set up fun, family-friendly exhibitions. This is evident with museums in Fremantle. For instance, the maritime museum has embraced pop culture and current technology. What this does is make their museum a cool hangout spot for just about everyone. This also includes the young at heart.
Now for the best part, not all museums in Fremantle charge an admission fee. Even better, a number of museums in the port city of Fremantle have reasonably low admission fees. Museums like WA Shipwrecks Museum, maritime museum and Western Australian Museum are known to have low admission fees. Others on the other hand, including the maritime museum, offer their services for free be it at certain days.
Enjoy A Day At The Beach
One of the best things you can do during a vacation is taking strolls at the beach. They can be morning or evening beach strolls. With Fremantle, you have the option of doing just that thanks to its numerous beaches along the Indian Ocean. These beaches include Bathers Beach, Port Beach and South Beach.
At the beach, there are various activities you can take to make your day fun and enjoyable. For starters, you can opt to start a volleyball game. If you are with your family you can consider having a picnic at the beach. Even better, you can opt to have some alone time and read a book at the beach while soaking in the sun rays.
Explore Fremantle’s Landmarks
Regardless of where you choose to have your vacation, it’s sure to have landmarks or places of interest. The same applies with this western Australian city. Landmarks can make your vacation stay at a Fremantle accommodation memorable. How? Well, you can opt to take memorable pictures at these landmarks. Before this however, you need to know the different landmarks available.
That said, for you to really know landmarks and places of interest to visit during your stay at a Fremantle accommodation, I would advise you do a small research before boarding your flight. In this case, find out some of the famous monuments in the city of Fremantle. The Swan River is a perfect place of interest to start with.
Once you’re done with your search, remember to list down at least 20 spots. Carry this list with you and allocate enough time for you to visit them. When doing so have in mind that you’ll be taking pictures, in other words, don’t allocate very little time. If you are staying at a Fremantle accommodation for a long time, you might as well have enough time to clear your list.
Check out Free Events
Fremantle, like any other city in the world, has several events on a daily basis. What this means is that regardless of the time you choose to visit, you are sure to find an event to go to. Some of these events are free of charge meaning you won’t have to spend a dime (of course maybe on drinks). Even better, you don’t have to know locals to actually get this information. You simply need to do a search on popular search engines like Google. Fun fact, this is something you can actually do even before visiting Fremantle.
If you are not able to find a free event of your choice using search engines, I suggest looking at local newspapers. This more so on weekend papers as they tend to have details of upcoming events of all types. Still having difficulties finding that perfect event? Well, it would be a good time to speak with a local. People like your hotel concierge might have good knowledge of on-going events that are free. Furthermore, they’ll know the exact place where the event(s) is so you won’t have to waste time looking for it.
Free City Tours
Several cities and town offer city tours to tourists and the same also applies in Fremantle. Whether you want to see bathers beach, cappuccino strip, Fremantle Prison, Fremantle visitor centre or Fremantle markets to eat drink later, a city tour will give you details on where places of value are.
A common misconception with city tours is that they are expensive. This belief is also shared by many tourists staying at a Fremantle accommodation. Despite the fact that there are costly city tours, there are some that are free. In most cases, these tours tend to be walking tours so always be ready to be active all day long.
A few things to note about such city tours are that they are safe. Additionally, the guides are usually very friendly and love talking to new people. Some incorporate fun ways to make your Fremantle city tour more exciting. Taking this into account and the fact that these guides are not paid, it’s always good to leave a tip.
Have A Picnic
In addition to its fishing boat harbour and south terrace, this western Australian city is known for its incredible parks. These include Sorrelle Park, Esplanade Park and Fremantle Park. If your Fremantle accommodation is close to one of these parks, why not have a picnic.
Picnics at one of these parks allow you to enjoy what this city has to offer nature-wise. Hence, if you are travelling with friends or family, you should consider having a picnic. Furthermore, it might just give you guys the opportunity to bond during your vacation.
With a picnic idea in mind for your vacation, it’s only right that you adequately prepare for it. You can do this by packing right. You can opt to pack all the necessary picnic items before jetting to Fremantle or buying them there. However, it is advised to carry your own picnic essentials like picnic blanket as it might get expensive buying one. Some Fremantle accommodations offer extra blankets so don’t hesitate to use them for a picnic.
