The notorious prison where convicts were transported from Britain since the 1850s before housing local prisoners all the way up until 1991.

Built all the way back in the 1850s, Fremantle Prison has its origins as a gaol built to house convicts transported from England and Ireland. It was not until 1886 that it was handed over to local authorities for home-grown prisoners, with whom it remained until it closed over a century later in 1991. Today the building is a World Heritage Site, housing a museum containing all kinds of artefacts and artwork, and a great place to go and learn more about crime and punishment through history.

"Step inside and do time" with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of fascinating tours, including Convict Prison, Behind Bars and True Crime. These 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 metres (65 feet) below the prison to explore a 1 kilometre (0.6 mile) labyrinth of tunnels on 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 an interpretive Visitor Centre, on-site cafe, award-winning Gift Shop and exhibitions in the Prison Gallery.

Located 22 kilometres (13 miles) south of Perth, Fremantle Prison can be reached via public transport. It is open year round except for Good Friday and Christmas Day, but it’s best to plan ahead and check the attraction’s website to find out more about all the tours on offer.
