Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia's most fascinating and significant cultural attractions. It is Western Australia's largest convict built structure and is a monument to systems of punishments with death row solitary cells and gallows.
We've got various prison tours that get both adults and children involved, or for a spookier adventure experience the prison at night for an eerie tour by torchlight - not for the faint-hearted. If you're looking for a bit more adventure, come explore the labyrinth of tunnels located 20 metres beneath the prison!
Entry to the Gatehouse is free of charge and includes: the Convict Cafe, Gift Shop, Prison Gallery and an interactive Visitor ...read more
While it is on the UN heritage list, this is much, much more than just an old convict prison, which is what I expected. In fact is was a prison that was in use right up until the 90s. There are multiple tours that you can take which means that there is a lot of revisit value, or you can simply spend the entire day here. We took the basic tour, which took you through the main part of the prison, and you even get to check out the cells. Oh, and the tour guides are all ex-wardens, which adds to the atmosphere a lot.
Take a look inside the workings of the Fremantle Prison. If you are brave book into one of the eerie night time tours where the guards/ Tour Guides regale you with tales of the many inmates and possible ghost stories. Whether you are a believer or not you can't help but feel a chill come over you.
Step inside and do time at Fremantle Prision, on of WA's premier attractions. Decommissioned in 1991 it was used continuesly as a place of incarceration for almost 40 years.
The prison is available for functions as well as tunnel tours - the largest convict-built structure in Western Australia.
