Fremantle prison – Western Australia
Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier heritage tourist attractions and in 2010 became the first building in Western Australia to be inscribed on to the prestigious World Heritage list as part of the ‘Australian Convict Sites’.
Visitors can ‘step inside and do time’ with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of fascinating tours. Prison Day Tours highlight convict and prison life, daring escapes and colourful characters in tales laced with prison humour. Visitors with a spirit for adventure can descend 20 meters below the Prison to explore a one kilometre labyrinth of tunnels by foot and by boat on a Tunnels Tour or delve into the darker side of the Prison’s history at night on a spooky Torchlight Tour.
In addition to its guided tours Fremantle Prison also features exhibitions in the Prison Gallery, interpretive Visitors Centres, onsite cafe and an award winning Gift Shop.
