As a rare example of urban archaeological site open to the public, the place provides a unique and exciting entrance to the City of Fremantle, [re]-establishing the relationship between the city's European origins and its contemporary urban environment. Design concepts are based on integrating the story-telling and interpretation into the landscape itself.
The site of Tibbet's cottage ruin forms the core of the archaeological interpretation with a sunken viewing platform established to encourage ruins to be viewed at the former 1844 ground level. A series of viewports to other smaller excavations are spread over the site to give an understanding of the extent of archaeology in within the park.
