We finally made our way to Fremantle and our first order of business was to check out the World Heritage Fremantle Prison. One of the most striking things about this prison is that it was in full operation until 1991. Bear this in mind as you see some of the photos of the facilities and amenities.
We took the time to take a couple of tours through the complex which was well worth it. “The Convict Prison” and “Behind Bars” tours provided an excellent insight to the history and life in this, the most intact convict establishment in the southern hemisphere.
There were some larger cells near the end of it’s tenure, but the primitive nature of the conditions was amazing.
This is truly one of the must see locations in Fremantle and Perth. Now, on to explore some of the lighter sides of the region.
