Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier tourist attractions and the only World Heritage listed building in the State.The Prison was built by convicts in the 1850s and was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years. With solitary cells and gallows Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent. Fremantle Prison now holds the key to history, mystery and fun. Step inside and do time with experienced guides on a fascinating Prison Day Tour. Explore the labyrinth of tunnels 20m beneath the Prison by foot and by boat on a Tunnels Tour adventure. Feeling brave? Delve into the darker side of the Prison’s history on an eerie Torchlight Tour.
We were only briefly stopping in Fremantle, but thankfully long enough to have been able to do the general prison tour (there are three options). We had had recommendations from two different UK sources so reasoned it would be a good bet. The 90-minute trip through the old prison which happily has been preserved and is now an official world heritage site was fascinating and thought-provoking. In Ian we had a thoroughly knowledgeable and personable guide who managed to get his reasonably fast-paced Delivery over in a good-humoured way. Based on our experience we would have opted for the other tours had we had enough time. Am attraction with a difference!

We visited this museum before the main Maritime Museum in Fremantle and found it very interesting, even though we are not in to boats/ boating or Australia's maritime history. Read all the information on both floors and thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Strongly recommend a visit - enjoy

We're pretty proud of our Fremantle brewery and we welcome visitors from far and wide every day. Grab a Pale Ale and a pizza and soak in the brewery chaos or wander out into the backyard to enjoy your beer and nosh in the Sunshine. You could also head to our Brewhouse bar to pick up a six pack to take home , free bike hire to explore around Freo for the day or stay awhile for a tasting of our full range of beers. We also love to show people around and run brewery tours at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm everyday... just come in and ask us or get in touch if you have a big group.
A visit is very much a MUST-DO Lots to try, has food and cold beer - try as many as your legs will allow Food menu looked nice but we only tried the beer's Great place to meet up with others and good views ...

This memorial is dedicated to those who served and lost thier lives fighting in wars that involved service personnel from Australia. It is well looked after and looks over Freemantle and further out to sea. You can walk from the town up the hill to the top which gives you great panoramic views, or catch a bus which passes close by to the memorial.

This is such a versatile beach with access for swimmers and dog lovers.
The beach is frequented by both swImmers and dog owners and attracts quite a few people. There's usually lots of parking.
There are amenities such as fish and chip shop and cafes nearby.

I really enjoyed this museum and i am not into boats, yachts etc and know/ little about, them. The museum. was well laid out, informative on all aspects of maritime history. We did see the winner of the America Cup also, lots of types of boats etc, young and old. Enjoyed a light lunch during the visit. Staff pleasant & helpful
My only comment is that although we were staying in Fremantlle, quite close by, the museum was difficult to find - better sign posting is needed.

It appears that the area is undergoing renovation/new building as it is turning into a lovely waterfront area to have a meal or drink. It's interesting to watch the local fishermen as they work on their boats. Easy to walk to from the main area of Freemantle as part of a great walk around this fascinating city

The Fremantle Round House is the oldest public building in Western Australia, purpose built as a gaol (jail) when the Swan River Colony was first settled. Volunteer Guides are available to share the history of the Round House with visitors and the Round House is open from 10.30am to 3.30pm daily (except for Christmas Day and Good Friday). The cannon is fired (weather permitting) at 1.00pm every day on the Gun Deck and we welcome visitors applying to be the Honorary Gunner for the day.
The Roundhouse is the oldest public building in Western Australia. It opened in January 1831 and was built to hold any person convicted of a crime in the Swan River Colony and was used until 1886. It contained eight small cells and a jailer's residence all opening onto a central courtyard. In 1837 the Fremantle Whaling Company requested that a tunnel be dug through Arthur Head to High street, it was 57m in length and linked the whaling station at Bathers Beach to the High Street. The building has had varied uses over the years and was ultimately transferred to the City of Fremantle in 1982. An important piece of the State's history. Great panoramic views after you have climbed the steps.
