We did the double tour package of Behind Bars and True Crimes. Both of our guides, Carl and Steve, were very knowledgeable and passionate about the prison which made for a great experience. Some of the stories were truly horrifying! The prison has been kept in excellent condition and there were many things to see. Would definitely recommend this destination as a must see when in Fremantle!

I had the absolute pleasure of doing the true crime tour. The guide was Simon, he was a natural storey teller. This tour was equally informative and entertaining. Would highly recommend this tour and Simon.

A visit to the historic jail was initially a bit of a disappointment with (free!) access only to a basic but interesting museum displays. While we had limited time, my adult daughter & I opted to take an 1 1/4hr guided tour which is apparently the only way to visit the majority of this heritage listed site. Our guide, Christie, was absolutely fantastic and we enjoyed a fascinating time being entertained by her stories of this macabre piece of Australian history from it's inception to it's closure quite recently. Some of the content may not have been suitable for smaller children but I'm confident it would be tailored accordingly. Would heartily recommend!

Four of us recently visited the Perth Prison on our holiday from Victoria. We found the guided tour very interesting and our guide was a wealth of knowledge. The prison was easy to find and within a reasonable distance from either the Fremantle Train Station or the wharf. The prison certainly has an extensive history and many stories associated with it. The architecture is amazing as with the manicured grounds. Definitely worth a visit.
