Take one of the fascinating day tours that are timed so that you can experience both.

Fremantle Prison, Fremantle Reviews

  • Well worth a visit if you are in the Perth/Fremantle area. Check out the wall art in the old prisoner cells it's really cool. The tour has a creepy feel to it at times, especially at night! The tours are well run by excellent tour guides who really bring the jail and it's conditions back to life. The execution room is really creepy.....

  • Amazing experience, particularly recommended the ‘behind the bars’ and ‘true crime’ tours. I was lucky enough to have a private tour, because it was the last ‘true crime’ tour, and Christie ( my tour guide) was amazingly entertaining. We had lots of fun, trying to scare other people of other tours and talking about all the creepiest inmates! Definitely one of the best tour I’ve attended to!

  • Great choice for a Wednesday night, never expected such a fun tour with lots of information, fun and a bit of theatrical scene. Simon was our guide, which provide us a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend and make sure you go at night if you wanna spice up. :)

  • We went on the True Crime tour. The guide, Steven was next level. It was like he was living the part, drawing from deep within to tell the story. The subtle hand movements, the shifting feet. What a performance! What a champ! We love you Steve.

  • Overall a great take on Fremantle's history. Spooky at night, quite warm in the day. Suggest going on the cooler months. No free visiting areas inside. Tours are spaced so might have to wait if the tour started. Fee's are not small either but it's very educational. It will cost you quite a bit and the tour guides usually speak in English so people who do not know English might want to give it a miss.
