Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier tourist attractions and is the first built heritage site in Western Australia to be World Heritage Listed.
The Prison was built by convicts in the 1850s and was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years. With solitary cells and gallows Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent. Built from limestone carved from a rigde overlooking Fremantle town and the Indian Ocean beyond it is the most intact convict gaol in Australia and has altered little since its construction.
Fremantle Prison now holds the key to history, mystery and fun.
Step inside and do time with experienced guides on a fascinating Prison Day Tour. Explore the labyrinth of tunnels 20 metres beneath the Prison by foot and by boat on a Tunnels Tour adventure. Feeling brave? Delve into the darker side of the Prison’s history on a spooky Torchlight Tour.
