or arrange a package through the caterer.
DETAILS A Prison highlights tour is a great way
to get guests in the mood, while the Gift Shop
offers souvenirs, such as key rings and enamel
‘prisoner’ mugs, to complete your function.
uilt by convicts in 1850, Fremantle
Prison spent its first 140 years as a
place of incarceration and punishment.
Today, it is an awesome location for functions,
events and team-building experiences.
The Prison consists of several different
function areas, starting with the The Main
Cell Block – four storeys of prison cells,
divided into four divisions. Large double doors
between each division mean the space can
be customised to suit your group size. It is an
ideal venue for themed events.
The Commissariat, consisting of two stylish
underg round rooms with thick limestone
walls, is great for cocktail parties; while
the industrial-looking East Workshops –
originally built for inmates’ activities and as a
training ground for unskilled prisoners – are
perfect for formal dinners and presentations.
The labyrinth of tunnels 20 metres below
the Prison provides a spectacular location for
team-building experiences. After descending
the ladder system, your group will explore
the subterranean maze on foot and by boat.
Combine this with use of the Special Handling
Unit Meeting Room and lunch from the
on-site Convict Cafe for a day to remember.
Along with other areas, including the
Crown Theatre, Prison Yards, Main Parade
Ground, Gatehouse and two Chapels,
Fremantle Prison provides plenty of character
spaces to ensure a memorable function.
Team-building experiences can
include tours through the maze
of tunnels beneath the Prison.
