#Fremantle Prison Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Fremantle Prison Tour
Me and my girlfriends went on the ‘True Crime Tour’ at Fremantle prison and if you love true crime this is definitely something for you! there was only 4 of us as a group and we turned out to be the only ones who had booked the tour so we essentially got a private tour of our own! the lady who guided us was lovely and gave us all the juicy true crime we wanted. She also showed up the gallows where people used to be hung, this wasn’t part of our tour she just gave it to us as an extra as we were all so interested in the history of the prison! highly recommend and something different to do when in Perth.
trip to Fremantle prison
A World Heritage-listed site located in the port city of Fremantle, Western Australia, this prison operated from 1855 to 1991 and is now a tourist attraction and museum. We took a guided tour where we learnt about the history of the prison and the lives of the prisoners who were held there. Solitary confinement cells, the gallows, and the tunnel that was used for prisoner escapes were some of the highlights during the tour. A unique and educational experience for us
Fremantle | The largest prison in Western Australia
The Fremantle Prison, built in the 1850’s by convicts from England, is the largest prison in Western Australia and the best preserved in the country. It is also a World Heritage site and runs various tours that range from 1-3 hours daily.
In the tour, visitors will be able to walk into the cells, visit the chapels, as well as hear the history and fascinating stories from the excellent guides. One of the cells even had sketches on the wall - done by one very artistic convict during his time in the prison.
Admission starts from AUD$22 per adult but also has concessions for family and groups over 10. It is a place worth visiting while in Fremantle or Perth ( only 30 minutes away by car) .
