The past two decades has seen Fremantle and its surrounding suburbs experience quite profound economic, social, demographic and other changes. This Bulletin is the first in a series that will explore these changes in order to provoke dialogue about Fremantle’s core attributes and opportunities. The focus will be on a number of statistical local areas (SLAs) that comprise the Greater Fremantle region: East Fremantle, Fremantle – Inner and Fremantle – Remainder (see Figure 1). This Bulletin will examine some of the key demographic changes experienced in Greater Fremantle over the period 2001-2011. Central to this is a consideration of total population change, age and sex structure, ethnic and cultural diversity, and migration trends. Collectively, these provide important insights into the changing character of Fremantle and some of the implications for policy and planning.
