It is currently the only World Heritage Listed site in the Perth Metropolitan region.

From The Inside 2011 - WA Prisoner Art

Built by convicts in the 1850s, Fremantle Prison was used as a place of incarceration for 136 years before being decommissioned as an operating maximum security gaol in 1991. The empty prison with its solitary cells and gallows is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent.

Visitors can ‘step inside and do time’ with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of fascinating tours. Prison Day Tours highlight convict and prison life, daring escapes and colourful characters in tales laced with prison humour. Visitors with a spirit for adventure can descend 20 meters below the Prison to explore a one kilometre labyrinth of tunnels by foot and by boat on a Tunnels Tour or delve into the darker side of the Prison's history at night on a spooky Torchlight Tour.

Bookings are essential for Tunnels Tours and Torchlight Tours.
