Marine Terrace, Fremantle
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.
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. The camels would arrive at the long jetty, be driven along Marine Terrance, and then made to camp at the quarantine site. The animals would later be taken to the Goldfields.
