Victoria Quay Waterfront

Fremantle Ports continues to progress the planning and development of the western end of Victoria Quay, with a number of elements of the Fremantle Waterfront Masterplan now in place.

Working with other agencies and with community input, the aim is to revitalise this area of the waterfront and improve links with the Fremantle city centre. Elements of the Masterplan now in place include the Western Australian Maritime Museum, which was opened in 2002, O’Connor Landing where the ferries berth, realignment of Peter Hughes Drive, and refurbishment of historic B Shed to house a ferry terminal and café.

In 2013-14, Fremantle Ports engaged Fremantle-based CODA Studio to provide urban design services for the development of three precinct plans for the Commercial Precinct area on Victoria Quay, the adjacent Public Transport Authority land around the Fremantle Railway Station and the City of Fremantle's Pioneer Park. The Victoria Quay Enabling Precinct Plans gained the Policies, Programs & Concepts - Small Scale award at the Planning Institute's 2015 Australia Awards for Urban Design (September 2015). The precinct plan for the Fremantle Ports land and the precinct plan for the Public Transport Authority land were lodged with the WA Planning Commission on 16 September 2014 for consideration and were endorsed by the WAPC on 11 August 2015 subject to a few conditions.
