The Department of Transport is upgrading a range of services and amenities at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour to provide a better experience for harbour users and visitors.

Electrical upgrade

Electrical infrastructure at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour has not been upgraded since around 1985, in the lead-up to the America's Cup defence. 

The electrical upgrade will create a safer network with improved capacity. 

Construction is due to begin in 2024. 

Jetty replacement

Jetty 3 reached the end of its serviceable life and will be replaced with a modern floating pen system to accommodate 45 new berths.

The jetty replacement project started with the demolition of the jetty in late-2022 and is due for completion in 2023. 

Penholder amenities and services upgrade

A small land reclamation is being undertaken in Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour to allow for the future construction of a penholder facility.

Works will also deliver pedestrian improvements, services and lighting upgrades, and landscaping. 


  • A safer electrical network with improved capacity and better reliability for tenants
  • A new, modern floating pen system to accommodate 45 berths
  • Additional land for the future construction of facilities
