Fremantle passenger terminal will get $3 million upgrade to attract international cruise tourists Western Australia’s popular port city Fremantle is going to upgrade its ports to attract more international cruises.

 

The ageing passenger terminal of Fremantle will get a $3 million revamp in a bid to entice more cruise ships to the port city, which will boost the cruise tourism and also help to earn more tourism revenue.

 

Premier Mark McGowan said that this restoration work would start this month on the heritage-listed terminal, which was built in 1960, to improve passengers’ experience, security and comfort. Now this revamp is necessary to attract more tourists to the destinations of this Western Australia’s popular port city.

 

Premier Mark McGowan also addressed that they have some big plans to make the city fully furnished for international tourists, where can freely relax and enjoy.

 

This revamp will make the visitor experience much better. They are improving the ports of Geraldton and Broome to make sure they are more attractive for cruise ships to come in.

 

Mr McGowan said even though $3 million was “admittedly” not a huge amount of money, it would make a big difference. The terminal refurbishment, expected to be finished before the end of the year, will include repainting, updated signage, modern furniture and flagpoles and banners. The portable screens that block the light from the building’s floor-to-ceiling windows will be replaced by glass screens.

 

A new canopy to be built at the entrance will shelter the passengers from sun and rain while they wait for transport. The Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said the sea of asphalt and cars parked on Victoria Quay would have to wait for a bigger revamp of the precinct.

 

Fremantle processed 144,000 passengers from 61 cruise ships in the past financial year, adding $314 million to the local economy and supporting 1177 jobs in tourism and its related industry.
