Torchlight Tour


Are you feeling brave? Explore the darker side of the Fremantle Prison story at night on an eerie tour by torchlight.
Cringe at the ghastly, the rotten, the wretched and the inhumane experiences and events in the prison's history.
Featuring the Main Cell Block, solitary confinement, whipping post, the gallows and the morgue, these tours are not for the faint hearted.
Be warned – there are a few surprises along the way!
