Parks and Gardens, Fremantle: 13 reviews and 20 photos


Buckland Hill is in Mosman Park just north of Fremantle. Originally the area was known as Buckland Hill before it changed its name to Mosman Park in 1937. It is one of the highest points in the metropolitan area of Perth and was named after James Buckland (Dean of Westminister). The hill was an important limestone source. During the war, it was also made a 1st class observation spot for gun batteries. On the top of the hill is a limestone obelisk. This is its second location on the hill as it was moved when the reservoir was restored and given a roof.
