Fremantle Prison

Fremantle Prison is Western Australia’s only World Heritage listed building. Built by convicts in the 1850s, Fremantle Prison was used as a place of incarceration for 136 years. Decommissioned as a maximum security gaol in 1991, the prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent. Step inside and do time with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a Prison Day Tour, Tunnels Tour adventure or spooky Torchlight Tour. Fremantle Prison is open 7 days a week and the Prison Gatehouse is open from 9.00am to 5.00pm daily, and later on Wednesday and Friday evenings.
