Convicts of Fremantle and Maritime Museum

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £69.42 GBP / Adult
Experience two strikingly different glimpses of history starting at the Western Australia Maritime Museum. This exquisite museum depicts the inseparable bond the region has enjoyed with the sea for generations. Witness iconic vessels, including the Australia II, which wrestled the cherished America’s Cup from the United States in 1983, after 132 years of American victory. See the Parry Endeavor, in which Jon Sanders circumnavigated the world three times and didn’t set foot on dry land for 658 days. Next, go from wide-open ocean to the dark confines of Fremantle Prison. This sandstone prison dates back to 1855 and was built by convicts during Australia’s days as a penal colony. Explore the imposing cellblock as an expert historian regales tales of those incarcerated here and the unspeakable horrors the occurred within these walls. Shockingly, the prison remained in operation until 1991 and the ghosts of its past can surely be felt.
  • Visit the Western Australia Maritime Museum to learn about the rich seafaring history of the region.
  • Witness the famed America’s Cup yacht, Australia II, and the Oberon-class submarine, HMAS Ovens.
  • Tour Fremantle Prison, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers a sobering look at life in the penal colony.
