Fremantle Prison is the only World Listed Heritage site in WA. Learn the history of how the prison came about, who designed it, who built it, and what was it like once you were inside its forbidding walls. See the cells where prisoners spent years as a punishment for their crimes.

Was there a church for prisoners to attend, did prisoners get any privileges and if you broke the rules what happened? What was the worst job in the prison that nobody wanted? Did the prisoners get exercise and what was it, or were they locked up all day and night in their cells? As time progressed did conditions progress? Find out the answers to these questions and see for yourself what it was like inside WA’s biggest and hardest prison.

Cost $3.00. Book online.
