Marine Terrace, Fremantle

A tram on the Marine Terrace

Marine Terrace, Fremantle is a road on the southern side of the built up area of Fremantle, Western Australia. It is named for its location alongside the water front.[1]

At various stages in its history it has had significant processions along the terrace.[2] The trees that currently line the terrace are not found in early photographs.[3]

In 1896 a quarantine station was set up at South Beach, at the end of the road, to process camels shipped in to Western Australia.[1] The camels would arrive at the long jetty, be driven along Marine Terrance, and then made to camp at the quarantine site.[1] The animals would later be taken to the Goldfields.[1]

It is bound by Esplanade Park[4] on its west side and has the Esplanade Hotel on the east side, along with a number of other heritage listed buildings.[5]
