About us

Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia's most fascinating and significant cultural attractions.

The history of Fremantle Prison dates back to the early beginnings of Western Australia and its role in the development of this State is unparalleled. It is the largest convict built structure in Western Australia and the most intact convict establishment in the nation.

In 2010, Fremantle Prison became the first building in W.A to be included on the World Heritage list. Its inscription on the World Heritage list was part of a serial nomination with ten other Australian Convict Sites. The site is also listed on the Australian Heritage Commission's Register of the National Estate.
