Marshalling yard

The suburb was once the site of Western Australian Government Railways Leighton Marshalling Yards, which linked the North Fremantle industrial area and North Quay.

The area is now being redveloped by the state government.

The Swan river on the border of North Fremantle, holds great significance to the Aboriginal community who call the river “Derbal Yaragan”.

Businesses

North Fremantle is home to Mojos bar; the Railway Hotel; the North Fremantle Bowling Club, a local community run club that supports local live music, and holds private functions and community events; and River Beach, Leighton Beach and Port Beach. North Fremantle has seen an increase of locally owned business along Stirling Highway including various cafes, restaurants and bars. The area's strong afternoon sea breeze (known as the 'Fremantle Doctor') makes its ocean beaches a prime location for wind and kite surfing.
