‘Step inside and do time’ with our experienced Guides and explore Fremantle Prison from its convict origins in the 1850s until its closure as a maximum security prison in 1991.

Walk back in time through the Main Cell Block and exercise yards to view life as it was inside for convicts and prisoners alike.

With a whipping post, gallows and solitary confinement cells, Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent.

We did the Doing Time tour today - the prison is completely amazing, at times very overwhelming and at some points extremely sobering. Our guide, was thoroughly knowledgeable and an excellent host. Would recommend this to anyone.
