‘Step inside and do time’ at Fremantle Prison, one of Western Australia\'s premier visitor attractions.
The Prison was built by convicts in the 1850s and was continually used as a place of incarceration and punishment for almost 140 years. Decommissioned as an operating maximum-security gaol in 1991, the empty prison with its thick limestone walls, solitary cells and gallows is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent.
Visitors are entertained daily by experienced guides on Prison Day Tours that run every 30 minutes between 10am and 5pm.
Adventurous visitors can explore the labyrinth of tunnels 20m beneath the Prison by foot and by boat on a Tunnel Tour from 9am daily.
Brave visitors can delve into the darker side of the Prison’s history on a spooky Torchlight Tour every Wednesday and Friday evening.
Prison Day Tour - adult $17.50 child $9

Lovers of old buildings will be inspired by the free style interpretation of classical architecture evident in the Fremantle Town Hall. Home to the tourist office on the ground floor, it is a great spot to start your walking tour of Fremantle. The Italian-style architecture was designed by the well-known Melbourne architects Grainger and D'Ebro with a richly decorated tower and steep mansard roof, the building also features a black swan which is the emblem of Western Australia. Officially opened in 1887, it has been fully restored to its original grandeur.
Fremantle is a thriving cultural hub with a diversity of beautiful buildings with richly decorated façades. Wander the streets and enjoy historic sites such as the Roundhouse, Fremantle Prison and The Markets.
Just a thirty minute drive or train ride from the City, Fremantle Town Hall is an important icon of Western Australia’s history.
The Fremantle War Memorial, located at Monument Hill in Fremantle, is surrounded by beautiful rose gardens and well maintained lawns. It offers almost 360-degree views of Fremantle, and is an ideal vantage point to look out over Fremantle Harbour and Garden Island.
Take some time out to relax on the lawns and enjoy the view whilst you reflect the true meaning of the memorial and appreciate the meaningful architecture.
Designed by architects J F Allen and C H Nicholas, it is constructed out of Toodyay Stone and was built and unveiled in 1928. A time capsule was placed in the monument on the day of unveiling.
Surrounded by an eleven acre reserve, the main memorial is encircled on three sides by eight smaller memorials. The memorial commemorates World War I and II, the Korean War, Malayan Emergency and Vietnam War.
The Museum houses a number of galleries that explore Western Australia’s relationship with the sea.
From leisure boats, pearling luggers and handcrafted sailing boats through to the winning America’s Cup yacht, Australia 11, visitors will be inspired by these iconic vessels and Western Australia’s rich maritime heritage.
The Oberon class submarine – HMAS Ovens – is another major attraction with daily tours by experienced guides (fee applies).
The Western Australian Museum — Shipwreck Galleries is recognised as the foremost maritime archaeology museum in the southern hemisphere.
The Museum is housed in 1850s-era Commissariat building and has since been restored to its historic glory. Steeped in history, the galleries house hundreds of relics from ships wrecked along WA’s treacherous coastline, including the original timbers from the Batavia (wrecked in 1629), the de Vlamingh plate, and also countless artefacts from the Dutch shipwrecks Zuytdorp, Zeewijk and Vergulde Draeck.
