Convicts of Fremantle & the Maritime Museum

Go directly to jail; do not pass go! Visit Fremantle Prison, a fascinating and memorable UNESCO World Heritage Site. This incredible sandstone prison dates back to 1855 and was built using convict labour. Almost 10,000 male convicts were assigned to Western Australia between 1850 and 1868. Amazingly, this house of horrors remained in use until 1991. A guided tour of the main cellblock and the prison yard explains the history of some famous inmates. Head to the Western Australia Maritime Museum which houses several unique galleries that explore our relationship with the sea, from leisure boats and handcrafted sailing boats to commercial pearl luggers. It is home to the winning America's Cup yacht, Australia II. View the Oberon class submarine the HMAS Ovens, Jon Sanders’ Parry Endeavour, and many other iconic vessels.
