The Fremantle Police Station complex (incorporating the 1899 limestone former courthouse) is a group of buildings located at 45 Henderson Street, Fremantle, Western Australia.[1] The complex includes the former courthouse, police station, various accommodation buildings, artillery drill hall (now the Fly by Night Club[2]) and lock-up. The group was originally constructed between 1896 and 1903. Later elements of lesser significance include the 1957 and 1978 extensions to the courthouse, the lock-up keeper's house, Norfolk Island pines and Canary Island date palms.[3]
