WA Travel Guide

View Guides
Western Australia is one of the oldest, most diverse and sparsely populated landscapes in the world. The state covers almost one-third the size of the USA and all of Western Europe, shared amongst a population of 2.6 million. If you like your own space, there’s plenty of it to go around. Each region and town has its own character. From rodeos, cattle farms, crocodiles, cray fishermen and ancient rock art in the north, to stunning beaches, world-class wineries and restaurants in the south.

Tours at Fremantle Prison

Fremantle Prison holds the key to history, mystery and fun. Step inside and do time on a fascinating Prison Day Tour, Tunnels Tour adventure or spooky Torchlight Tour.

  • Suited For:Families


  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday
  • Tour Locations:Fremantle Prison


Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier tourist attractions and is the first building in the State to be inscribed on to the World Heritage list.

The Prison was built by convicts in the 1850s and was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years. Decommissioned as an operating maximum security gaol in 1991, the empty prison with its solitary cells and gallows is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent.

If the walls of the Prison could talk they might tell stories of loneliness, pain and suffering.  As a place of execution between 1888 and 1984, 43 men and 1 women were hanged there.

Step inside and do time with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of Prison Day tours around this fascinating site. Daring escapes and colourful characters feature in tales laced with prison humour. Artwork on cell walls speak volumes, from the classical to the vibrant Aboriginal images.

For more information on WA’s World Heritage listed tourist attraction visit us at www.fremantleprison.com.au

The Great Experience. The Great Adventure. The Great Escape:

Great Escape cruises are not simply a luxurious way to leave the familiar behind….

It’s an entirely new way of enjoying the natural world…

It’s about embarking upon a fascinating and stimulating journey of discovery and adventure…

It’s about finding new ways of looking at time and nature…

It’s also about relaxing…really relaxing in the company of those who share your appetite for unique experiences that excite the senses and challenge the mind.

Ultimately, Great Escape is about a journey to discover new places and ideas, and of re-discovering the carefree emotions and passions of childhood.

It has been compared to a cathedral, 180 m long and 45 m wide, and the ceiling that is arched along the full length of the chamber, is about 40 m high, the walls at both ends are vertical and the floor is flat. The white walls and ceiling are all smooth, all leading to the appearance of a cathedral. It doesn't reach the water table, so there is no lake, the floor being a soft, dark sand. The scattered boulders in the chamber are also white. Unlike other chambers of the Nullarbor it is reached by walking, although it is down a steep talus slope that goes down about 70 m where a sharp turn opens into the main cavern. The entrance is a shallow sinkhole from which a narrow gap in the wall leads to the slope.
