Victoria Quay

Victoria Quay is the name which was given to the South Wharf of the port during the reign of Queen Victoria - tho the name may be changed back to the original one.

Cargo sheds A-D are still on the wharf, with E Shed now functioning as a tourist market on the other side of an access road.

There is an Immigration Building of some heritage importance, and a Police Station which is being allowed to fall into ruins.

The Passenger Terminal is a large and significant building which is still used by cruise ships despite access its southern side being compromised by the area being mainly used for the temporary parking of imported motor vehicles.

The Maritime Museum is on the most western extremity of the wharf.

The Fremantle Ports building is very close to the wharf, tho it has the nominal street address 1 Cliff St.
