Fremantle Prison

Fremantle Prison is one of WA's premier tourist attractions and in 2010 became the first building in Western Australia to be inscribed on to the prestigious World Heritage list as part of the Australian Convict Sites. In 2015 the Prison was announced as the gold medalist in the categories of Major Tourist Attractions and Cultural Tourism at the Western Australian Toursim Awards. Built by convicts in the 1850s, Fremantle Prison was used as a place of incarceration for 136 years before being decommissioned as an operating maximum security gaol in 1991. The empty prison with its solitary cells and gallows is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent. Visitors can "step inside and do time" with Fremantle Prison's experienced guides on a range of fascinating tours. Prison Day Tours highlight convict and prison life, daring escapes and colourful characters in tales laced with prison humour. Visitors with a spirit for adventure can descend 20 meters below the prison to explore a one kilometre labyrinth of tunnels by foot and by boat on a Tunnels Tour or delve into the darker side of the prison's history at night on a spooky Torchlight Tour. Fremantle Prison has been ranked 9th in a list of Australia's top 10 landmarks compiled by travel website TripAdvisor as part of the annual Travellers' Choice Awards! In addition to its guided tours Fremantle Prison also features exhibitions in the Prison Gallery, Interpretive Visitors Centre, onsite Cafe and an Award Winning Gift Shop.

Nature and art hub for kids and their grown ups

Come and enjoy a refreshment in peace whilst your children explore, create and play in our nature play area. Here at Moore & Moore our Café is 60% farm-to-table and we pride ourselves in supporting local farmers to bring you a range of fresh and organic options. We are firm believers that a healthy diet as well as the opportunity for unstructured natural play can be hugely beneficial in the development of children.Benefits of nature play: • Children who play regularly in natural settings are sick less often. Mud, sand, water, leaves, sticks, pine cones and gum nuts can help to stimulate children's immune system as well as their imagination.• Children who spend more time outside tend to be more physically active and less likely to be overweight.• Children who play in natural settings are more resistant to stress; have lower incidence of behavioural disorders, anxiety and depression; and have a higher measure of self-worth.• Children who play in natural settings play in more diverse, imaginative and creative ways and show improved language and collaboration skills. Single use, repetitive play equipment becomes boring quickly.• Natural, irregular and challenging spaces help kids learn to recognise, assess and negotiate risk and build confidence and competence.• Children who play in nature have more positive feelings about each other.• Bullying behaviour is greatly reduced where children have access to diverse nature-based play environments.• Symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder are reduced after contact with nature.
