Fremantle Prison Art Tour

Join one of Fremantle Prison's experienced guides for this exclusive tour showcasing a variety of convict and prisoner artwork.

Artistic endeavour is not something you expect to see in a prison. The cell walls, doors and exercise yard walls of Fremantle Prison are covered with works of art painted by prisoners over the 136 years of the Prison’s history.

Join us on this exclusive tour as we reveal the experiences of prisoners expressed through art. View convict-drawn frescoes and religious works, European landscapes, Aboriginal landscapes in the renowned Carrolup style, dot paintings, graffiti and tattoo art. Participants aged 18+ will receive a complimentary copy of ‘Art Behind Bars: Murals and Graffiti of Fremantle Prison’. *Due to the majority of the artwork being located upstairs this tour is not suitable for wheelchairs

Warning: Please note some artwork on this tour contains graphic images and text which could be offensive to some people. This tour is not recommended for people who are offended easily or for children under 12.Bookings and enquiries can be made by contacting Fremantle Prison on 9336 9200
