Fremantle Prison: Time in the Tunnels


Fremantle Prison, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built in the 1850s and sits atop a network of tunnels and passageways that form an astonishing labrynth. Put on a hard hat, overalls, boots and switch on your headlamp. Then, lock into the ladder system and descend 65 feet into the depths below. Trek with your guide, on foot, as (s)he explains how the tunnels were built and their purpose. KIck it up a notch when you reach the wet section; hop into a replica convict punt and explore the submerged passageways accessible only by boat. Discover original blast holes, bores, oil lamp recesses and artifacts from the days when working in the tunnels was hard labour punishment for prisoners. This is an unforgettable experience combining adventure and a glimpse of Australia’s macabre penal history.
