Explore the darker side of Fremantle Prison’s history.

The Prison walls echo with stories of loneliness, pain and suffering, of executions gone wrong, of the innocent unjustly imprisoned and the guilty punished. 

Join our Guides in the dark as they engage you with sordid and ghastly stories.

Be warned - these tours are not for the faint hearted.

Bookings essential.
