Description

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.
