Closures due to weather conditions
The gates to North Mole are closed when certain dangerous conditions prevail — that is, when there is a high swell and strong north-westerly winds.
Fremantle Ports closes the gates if conditions do not look safe for the public. The decision is not based on whether the swell is a certain height or whether the wind is a certain speed.
The open/closed status of the moles is available on the homepage.
However, if weather conditions include a high swell and strong north-westerly winds causing dangerous conditions for fishers on the mole, the North Mole gates will probably be shut.
