Fremantle Prison

Fremantle, Western Australia, Australia

Fremantle Prison is a 60,000 square metre site which was once the site of the prison and all associated buildings including the large perimeter wall. Built around 1850 by convict labour it was used as a prison until 1991. It was then reopened as a historic site and there are many guided tours operating here. Some are daily whist there are night tours with some being labeled ghost tours. There are also tours which guide you through the flooded tunnels which are under the prison. Fremantle Prison was placed on the World heritage List as an Australian Convict Site in 2010. Ideal to visit for a history lesson, a bit of fun, or a spooky ghost tour. There is a gift shop on site called the Convict Café. Open 7 days a week except for Christmas Day and Good Friday.
