North-East Fremantle was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Western Australia from 1897 to 1911.

Based in urban Fremantle, the district was first contested at the 1911 state election, being an amalgam of the former districts of North Fremantle and East Fremantle. Its first member was William Angwin of the Labor Party, formerly the member for East Fremantle. The district ceased to exist at the 1950 state election, when Labor member John Tonkin transferred the new district of Melville. Tonkin later became Premier of Western Australia from 1971 to 1974.
