On the UNESCO World Heritage List as one of 11 Australian Convict Sites, Fremantle Prison paints a vivid image of the country's penal-colony history. Convicts built the prison in the 1850s. Today you can explore the prison on a guided tour, including a torch-lit option. Navigate tunnels 20 m (65 ft) beneath the ground on foot and by boat. The prison art gallery sells pieces created by current and ex-prisoners in Western Australia.

  • Absolutely loved our tours. We did the Behind Bars tour with James and he was amazing as so much fun to tour with. Then our Tunnels Tour was outstanding and our tour guide Courtney was fantastic. I’m Perth born and bred and love the enthusiasm that the guides have for this fantastic heritage listed site. Their knowledge is amazing. Thank you so much guys. See you very soon for more amazing experiences ❤️
  • Our family thoroughly enjoyed the day. We did 2 of the 3 available tours and the information didn't have much cross over, which was good. We thought it was good value for the day; $124 for 6 of us: 2 adults & 3 kids (great that their family price is for 2 adults & 3 kids as well, as usually it's only for 2 kids). Having a large family We appreciated this.
