Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia's premier heritage attractions. World Heritage listed as part of the 'Australian Convict Sites'.
Built by convicts in the 1850s and decommissioned as a maximum security gaol in 1991, Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent. 'Step inside and do time' with Fremantle Prison's experienced guides on a range of fascinating tours. Prison tours highlight convict and prison life, daring escapes and colourful characters in tales laced with prison humour, those with a spirit for adventure can descend underground to explore a labyrinth of tunnels by foot and by boat on a Tunnels Tour, or delve into the darker side of history on a nighttime Torchlight Tour.
