We don't really have an urge to buy souvenirs while traveling. Most of the time we don't mind buying souvenirs from tourist attraction place, as long as they are unique. We only buy few things anyway, so the price different will not be significant.
However, I love to visit markets! So I planned to visit E Shed Markets located in Fremantle, a short drive from Perth. This market is famous as the place to find cheap souvenirs in Perth.
We still had our rented car that day, after our roadtrip to Kalbarri National Park. It was a good thing because it rained heavily throughout the day. We parked our car just in front of the main entrance.

E Shed Markets is located in a historical warehouse building in the heart of Fremantle port. It is the only waterfront market in Western Australia where you can see the boat passing by.
You can have your hight tea in one of the restaurants having a terrace to enjoy the view.
2. Take A Look At Those Unique Shops
Not only souvenirs, you can also find antiques, crafts, fresh vegetables and fruits, and many more. We came accross this scrap metal art work shop, and the works were impressive!

4. Have Your Meal at The Foodcourt
There's a decent foodcourt inside E Shed Markets to take a rest after your shopping time. We only took pictures of the foodcourt because we planned to dine at Kailis, a seafood restaurant located along the harbourside of Fremantle.

5. Buy The Nuts, Addition to The Souvenirs
On the top of buying Australian souvenirs, you can also look for a good quality of nuts at E Shed Markets. Australian nuts are famous, so you can also buy this and share it with you loved ones at home.
|Looks very yummy, but too bad the nuts were expensive:p|
Wheter you are planning to buy cheap Australian souvenirs or not, I might say the E Shed Markets is really worth a visit. The building itself is unique, you can stroll around and taking lots of pictures of the surroundings.
