Perth and the historic town of Freemantle are separated by the Swan River and were founded in 1829.  The discovery of gold in 1890 turned eyes to the west and saw Perth and Freemantle grow.  Freemantle harbour was developed artificially and also is the port for Perth.

Around the city of Perth there are numerous shore and boat diving locations.  The local reefs are often limestone features with overhangs, swimthroughs and caves in which divers can find crays, Western Blue Devil Fish, and cuttlefish.  The local diving opportunities include caves and swim throughs, structures and dense fish life.  If you want to dive structures the Woodman Point Ammunitions Jetty, the Jetty at Kwinana and Rob’s Jetty are all local shore dives.   Dive historic wrecks such as the impressive Royal Mail Ship Orizaba and the whaler Saxon Ranger.
