The Fremantle Round House is the oldest surviving public building in Western Australia. It was built as a gaol almost immediately upon the settlement of the Swan River Colony. It was designed by Henry Willey Reveley, the colony's first Civil Engineer, and built in 1830 - 1831.Wander around the twelve-sided Round House and marvel at the diverse uses of this historic building including its initial use as a goal and gaoler's residence. It was later used as a police lock-up and shortly as a home for the Water Police Constable, his wife and seven children.
