Directions to Fremantle Prison
One of Western Australia's most fascinating and significant cultural attractions, Fremantle Prison is a snapshot of disconcerted Australian history, from its early convict establishment to its final days as a maximum security jail in 1991.
The World Heritage listed site was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years, with death row, solitary cells and gallows. It was a place of hangings, floggings, dramatic convict escapes and prisoner riots. Inmates included imperial convicts, colonial prisoners, enemy aliens, prisoners of war and maximum-security detainees.
Take an entertaining tour with one of the experienced guides who bring the rich folklore and stories of the prison to life. Choose from a day tour or an 'extreme heritage' tunnels tour adventure. If you're brave enough, take one of the evening tours and explore the prison by torchlight.
Entry to the Gatehouse is free and includes the Convict Café, gift shop, prison gallery and an interactive visitor centre.
Daily from 9am - 5pm, later on Wednesday and Friday evenings for torchlight tours.
