Townhall

There has been speculation in the Fremantle community if the swans on the Townhall would be black or white after the extensive conservation work, but they are neither.

The swans were originally not painted at all, like the rest of the Townhall clocktower, and were only painted black in the 1960s.

The stunning Freo Townhall will be 130 years old on June 22 this year. It was opened on that day in 1887.
