Fremantle Prison Reviews
世界遺産のフリーマントル刑務所を訪問 22aud 日本語のナレーション流れる機械貸してもらえますがツアーのおじさんの説明聞いている方が楽しかったですね ムチウチのシミュレーションもやってくれました 一部屋がとても狭くあんなのに閉じ込めらめたら気が狂いそう 当時のまま結構保存されているので貴重な体験になりました more »Visit to Fremantle Prison, a World Heritage Site, 22aud Japanese narration flowing machine lendit to me, but it was more fun to listen to the explanation of the uncle of the tour, and the simulation of The Whipuchi was also done. One room was very small, and it became a valuable experience because it was considerably preserved as it was at that time when it was going to go mad if it confined to such a thing.

Limited edition is also sold in the shop. Photography is possible on site.
Great tours conducted by enthusiastic knowledgeable guides. Would advise all to visit this amazing place. Did the tunnels tour which is fascinating. Sarah the guide was superb. Be prepared for a long climb down vertical ladders and stooping along long tunnels. Not for the claustrophobic!
I booked a tunnel tour following a recommendation from my daughter. I must admit that, at first, I thought the price was a bit steep, $130 for two of us but now, having done the tour, I'm pleased to say that it was well worth it and I've already recommended it to others. Our guide, Sarah, was brilliant. She was friendly, fun, and very knowledgeable. She gave us lots of information in an interesting way and, even if you're not into historical facts and figures, you'll find the stories fascinating. The climb down the ladder system was OK, although 20 vertical metres was a lot deeper than I expected. Navigating the underground waterways in a flat-bottomed punt was really enjoyable. We even did some sections in pitch darkness, which was great. Sarah did check that everyone was happy to do so first so, if that's a step too far for you, rest assured, it's not compulsory. Thank you Sarah for giving us a fascinating insight into the tunnels' history and for making the whole experience such a memorable one!
