On Tour Discipline

Our Tour Guides are committed to providing all visitors with the best possible experience from their visit to Fremantle Prison.  

As each group has its own objectives for the visit and ground rules for child conduct, we ask that at least one of your supervisors or helpers accompany the Tour Guide throughout the tour to help us make sure that the information presented is targeted to your needs and to bring the group to order when necessary.

Supervisor Ratio

At least one supervisor must accompany every tour. As per the above information, our Tour Guides can take a maximum of 35 people per group for Prison Tours.

One supervisor per 10 children on Prison Tours will be permitted entry free of charge. Additional supervisors will incur a fee equal to the concession rate for general tours.
