Fremantle is known for its maritime history, Victorian architecture, Australian football team (the Dockers) and remnants from Australia’s days as a British penal colony. Fremantle Prison, which housed convicts from the 1850s to 1991, now features re-created cellblocks. Take a trip back in time to see what life was like for convicts locked away in Fremantle Prison during the 1800s. Thousands of men built their own jail, after being shipped to Australia from Great Britain. The solitary cells and gallows set the scene for an unbearable system of punishment that lasted for around 140 years.
