    We enjoyed our night tour of the Fremantle Prison. Wish we had time to do the full tour and hopefully come back some day to do the tunnel tour.

    We both enjoyed the maritime museum and its very informative displays. Would be great to be able to go onboard one of the sailing ships to have a look around as we have never been on one. Next visit we will prebook the submarine tour and hopefully the weather will be in our favour.

    Travelled there on the free CAT bus from the railway station. Museum was free but have a donation box for gold coins. Very interesting collection and well written history of all the wrecks off the coast of WA. They do free tours at 10.30am and 2.30pm daily. They have the original timbers of the Batavia and you can look down onto stern of the Batavia and see what life onboard was like from the observation deck.

    Very comprehensive, engaging & attentive staff.

    The armoured component of the exhibits was fantastic to see. Great that they can preserve that piece of history.

    Tricky to rate because it's a lovely complex, beautifully restored, but a bit haphazard as far as letting visitors know what there is without having to constantly ask. That is, signage isn't the best.

    There's a nice shaded lawn area, there's a café and a craft-type shop, art galleries, and a smallish bookshop.

    If you visit, serendipity may be your friend.

    A completely different exhibition to when I was here last year.
    A fun exhibition, in parts introducing new objects into famous paintings.
    I enjoyed.

    They were particularly in awe of the antique artefacts, weird looking beds, that there's a very deep well in the house itself ... shocked that there is no microwave oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher or television ... lost for words at how clothes are 'stabbed' and 'stirred' for washing and then put through a mangle to squeeze water out of them ... puzzled that the very first car looked more like a tram. Our tour guide Joy was awesome and provided so much info. They had a fun day learning about the Samson family and their way of living.

    We spent more time conversing with the Island volunteer then looking at the small exhibition on display. He was a fount of information & loved his job. As an original building it's still worth a quick look and the displays change on a regular basis.

    Greg does outstanding work and it is a real pleasure to wander around his studio and view his amazing works. We were lucky enough to have a chat with him from the stairs as he worked in his workshop. If you like art, you will like this place.

    This gallery is in the home of the owners and was very warm and welcoming. There was a wonderful selection of painting works to choose from and we spent quite a long time looking around at the exhibits. Anna and Arthur were very professional, friendly and helpful and provided excellent assistance answering all our questions. Having lived extensively in remote Australia we were reasonably well versed in the indigenous culture and their original works are excellent. A unique place well worth the visit. Thank you.
