  • The Fremantle Prison tour is a must-do for visitors to Perth. It is an historic place that brings visitors back to the first days of the English convicts as well as the local residents. One would think it would be a most sombre and morbid place to visit but it proved to be rather different. It is clean and well lit.

  • Interesting stories, some - as a Perth resident - I’d never heard before, eg the Catalpa incident (which would make a great movie!). Gives a real insight into life in the prison/Fremantle/WA in those days.

  • 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!
