Fremantle Prison

Fremantle
Fremantle Prison was once one of the most notorious prisons in the British Empire. It housed British convicts, local prisoners, military prisoners, enemy aliens and prisoners of war.
A classic example of a prison Fremantle Prison, sometimes referred to as Fremantle Gaol or Fremantle Jail, is a former Australian prison and World Heritage Site in Fremantle, Western Australia. The six-hectare (15-acre) site includes the prison cellblocks, gatehouse, perimeter walls, cottages, and tunnels. It was initially used for convicts transported from Britain, but was transferred to the colonial government in 1886 for use for locally-sentenced prisoners. Royal Commissions were held in 1898 and 1911, and instigated some reform to the prison system, but significant changes did not begin until the 1960s. The government department in charge of the prison underwent several reorganisations in the 1970s and 1980s, but the culture of Fremantle Prison was resistant to change. Growing prisoner discontent culminated in a 1988 riot with guards taken hostage, and a fire that caused $1.8 million worth of damage. The prison closed in 1991, replaced by the new maximum-security Casuarina Prison.

The Aboriginal Prison of Rottnest Island

The stunning holiday location of Rottnest Island once served as an Aboriginal prison. … The colonial expansion saw it as an Aboriginal prison (until 1904) and subsequently as a forced labour camp for prisoners (until 1931). It housed Aboriginal convicts who did not comprehend or respect the British legal system.

The Prisoners

Around 4,000 Aboriginal men and boys from all over Western Australia were incarcerated on Rottnest Island.… The first ten were brought in 1838.  Many of these prisoners were transported in chains for thousands of miles before they were to start their sentence. During the operating period around 370 Aboriginal prisoners died. Most deaths were due to disease, while five were hanged.

Prisoners from Swan River Colony 

The Noongar people who originally lived here were baffled by the European settlers’ class structures, wealth status and religious dogmas. … They became confused and disconcerted as they took up resistance (violent or otherwise) as a way of survival. The main area of conflict was, and still is, the land.

Prisoners from Other Regions

The Rottnest Aboriginal prison also housed prisoners from many places of Western Australia.… As the colonial frontier spread further north and east from Perth, more and more Aboriginal prisoners were brought here.  The Southwest, the Goldfields, Murchison, Gascoyne, Pilbara and Kimberley are some of those areas of prisoners.

Fremantle
Fremantle Prison was once one of the most notorious prisons in the British Empire. It housed British convicts, local prisoners, military prisoners, enemy aliens and prisoners of war.

5. Bindinni  6. Madatjarra 7. Koara (Kuwarra)  8. Tjalkatjarra

The Journey to Rottnest Aboriginal Prison

The convicts started a trying journey to the island prison from where they were arrested.…The journey often took several days.  The prisoners travelled in chains or ropes with no change of clothing.  At times they were escorted by boat or held in captivity for many days until a ship arrived.  An estimated 25 prisoners have died while in transit to Rottnest Island.

Infrastructure of the Prison

The Panopticon-style prison was constructed in 1863 by using the forced labour of thousands of Aboriginal prisoners.… Some of these prisoners were as young as eight.  The prison contained small cells (3m X 1.7m), to hold up to 7 persons.  At times more than 12 were accommodated in one cell.  The burial ground of the prison is located within the Thomson Bay Settlement, adjacent to the Quod.

Buildings and Structures Constructed by the Prisoners

Aboriginal prisoners were used to build roads and other infrastructure till 1931. … The Quod, Seawall, the museum, churches, lighthouses and other heritage-listed buildings and structures were constructed by the Aboriginal prisoners.

Closure of the Prison

The Rottnest Island Aboriginal Prison officially closed in 1904. … Subsequently, it was transformed into a forced labour camp. In 1931, much of the prison’s infrastructure was developed and converted for use as holiday accommodation. Over time, such development obscured the former use of the venue.

Best Bars in Fremantle

Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier visitor attractions and is the only World Heritage listed building in Western Australia. In 2015 Fremantle Prison was announced as the winner of both the Major Tourist Attractions and Cultural Tourism categories at the WA Tourism Awards.

Built by convicts in the 1850s, Fremantle Prison was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years. Decommissioned as an operating maximum security gaol in 1991, the empty prison with its solitary cells and gallows now welcomes ‘inmates’ of a different kind – tourists.

Visitors can ‘step inside and do time’ with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of tours that vary from pure history, to heritage adventure. On Prison Day tours visitors can learn about the daily life of convicts and prisoners alike. Featuring cells, yards, solitary confinement and an opportunity to view a once operational gallows these tours are perfect if you are interested in history or heritage. For a more spooky experience you can’t go past an eerie Torchlight Tour as tour guides delve into the darker side of the Prison’s history.

The most unique of all the tours on offer is the underground Tunnels Tour. Those with a spirit for adventure can explore a one kilometre labyrinth of tunnels built by prisoners which run under the Prison. Equipped with hardhat, overalls, boots, headlamps and harnesses visitors are locked into the ladder system before descending 20 metres into the depths below. Skilled guides lead the trek through dry sections of the tunnels by foot, before boarding replica convict punts to explore the submerged passageways accessible only by boat.

In addition to its guided tours Fremantle Prison also features exhibitions in the Prison Gallery, interpretive Visitor Centres and an award winning Gift Shop.

You can find more information on this heritage jewel by visiting www.fremantleprison.com.au

Whales are coast to the Perth and Fremantle coast

Whale sharks are the biggest fish in the sea. 

Being a gentle giant, it poses absolutely no harm to humans. Hence, it will be the only shark type that will tolerate close encounters like swimming aside from them. 

Swim Close to a Giant

The feeling when you are swimming close with a Goliath-like whale shark will be exhilarating. It will be an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.

They like Temperate Climates

Whale sharks are attracted to places where food is abundant, and they prefer waters with a temperate climate. 

Busy season March to August.

 Exmouth is an ideal region satisfying all these requirements; about 4000 whale sharks congregate in the area surrounding Exmouth, spanning the Ningaloo Reef from March to August. As whale sharks are a popular attraction in Exmouth, eight dive operators offer whale shark tours.

Perth to Exmouth whale shark tour
Snorkelers and scuba divers seek out these giants to swim beside them since they are so peaceful. Due to concerns from commercial fishing, the whale shark is designated as “Vulnerable” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species, but the advent of whale-shark tourism may cause some communities to view them as more valuable alive.

What to expect in a whale shark tour

You will go to the spots where whale sharks are in a spacious boat outfitted with modern equipment. In finding whale sharks in the vast ocean, spotter planes help find places where whale sharks are swimming quickly and communicate it with the boat. 

Hence, the process of finding Whale sharks may quite quick.

Precautions that you must take

It is strictly forbidden to touch any animal, how calm and docile it may seem. It would be best if you kept a distance of at least 3 m from the whale shark at all times and at least a distance of 4 m from its tail. It is to the safety of the animal as well as the swimmer.

You will see other marine life on your tour.

In swimming with a whale shark, you will get the chance to see other animals like humpback whales, dolphins, reef sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, dugongs, turtles, and various fish. Hence, there will be a real possibility of them approaching you. As all these animals are wild creatures, you must be alert to your surroundings all the time.

Fremantle Prison

Fremantle
Fremantle Prison was once one of the most notorious prisons in the British Empire. It housed British convicts, local prisoners, military prisoners, enemy aliens and prisoners of war.
A classic example of a prison Fremantle Prison, sometimes referred to as Fremantle Gaol or Fremantle Jail, is a former Australian prison and World Heritage Site in Fremantle, Western Australia. The six-hectare (15-acre) site includes the prison cellblocks, gatehouse, perimeter walls, cottages, and tunnels. It was initially used for convicts transported from Britain, but was transferred to the colonial government in 1886 for use for locally-sentenced prisoners. Royal Commissions were held in 1898 and 1911, and instigated some reform to the prison system, but significant changes did not begin until the 1960s. The government department in charge of the prison underwent several reorganisations in the 1970s and 1980s, but the culture of Fremantle Prison was resistant to change. Growing prisoner discontent culminated in a 1988 riot with guards taken hostage, and a fire that caused $1.8 million worth of damage. The prison closed in 1991, replaced by the new maximum-security Casuarina Prison.

The Aboriginal Prison of Rottnest Island

The stunning holiday location of Rottnest Island once served as an Aboriginal prison. … The colonial expansion saw it as an Aboriginal prison (until 1904) and subsequently as a forced labour camp for prisoners (until 1931). It housed Aboriginal convicts who did not comprehend or respect the British legal system.

The Prisoners

Around 4,000 Aboriginal men and boys from all over Western Australia were incarcerated on Rottnest Island.… The first ten were brought in 1838.  Many of these prisoners were transported in chains for thousands of miles before they were to start their sentence. During the operating period around 370 Aboriginal prisoners died. Most deaths were due to disease, while five were hanged.

Prisoners from Swan River Colony 

The Noongar people who originally lived here were baffled by the European settlers’ class structures, wealth status and religious dogmas. … They became confused and disconcerted as they took up resistance (violent or otherwise) as a way of survival. The main area of conflict was, and still is, the land.

Prisoners from Other Regions

The Rottnest Aboriginal prison also housed prisoners from many places of Western Australia.… As the colonial frontier spread further north and east from Perth, more and more Aboriginal prisoners were brought here.  The Southwest, the Goldfields, Murchison, Gascoyne, Pilbara and Kimberley are some of those areas of prisoners.

Fremantle
Fremantle Prison was once one of the most notorious prisons in the British Empire. It housed British convicts, local prisoners, military prisoners, enemy aliens and prisoners of war.

The Journey to Rottnest Aboriginal Prison

The convicts started a trying journey to the island prison from where they were arrested.…The journey often took several days.  The prisoners travelled in chains or ropes with no change of clothing.  At times they were escorted by boat or held in captivity for many days until a ship arrived.  An estimated 25 prisoners have died while in transit to Rottnest Island.

Infrastructure of the Prison

The Panopticon-style prison was constructed in 1863 by using the forced labour of thousands of Aboriginal prisoners.… Some of these prisoners were as young as eight.  The prison contained small cells (3m X 1.7m), to hold up to 7 persons.  At times more than 12 were accommodated in one cell.  The burial ground of the prison is located within the Thomson Bay Settlement, adjacent to the Quod.

Buildings and Structures Constructed by the Prisoners

Aboriginal prisoners were used to build roads and other infrastructure till 1931. … The Quod, Seawall, the museum, churches, lighthouses and other heritage-listed buildings and structures were constructed by the Aboriginal prisoners.

Closure of the Prison

The Rottnest Island Aboriginal Prison officially closed in 1904. … Subsequently, it was transformed into a forced labour camp. In 1931, much of the prison’s infrastructure was developed and converted for use as holiday accommodation. Over time, such development obscured the former use of the venue.

Best Bars in Fremantle

Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier visitor attractions and is the only World Heritage listed building in Western Australia. In 2015 Fremantle Prison was announced as the winner of both the Major Tourist Attractions and Cultural Tourism categories at the WA Tourism Awards.

Built by convicts in the 1850s, Fremantle Prison was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years. Decommissioned as an operating maximum security gaol in 1991, the empty prison with its solitary cells and gallows now welcomes ‘inmates’ of a different kind – tourists.

Visitors can ‘step inside and do time’ with Fremantle Prison’s experienced guides on a range of tours that vary from pure history, to heritage adventure. On Prison Day tours visitors can learn about the daily life of convicts and prisoners alike. Featuring cells, yards, solitary confinement and an opportunity to view a once operational gallows these tours are perfect if you are interested in history or heritage. For a more spooky experience you can’t go past an eerie Torchlight Tour as tour guides delve into the darker side of the Prison’s history.

The most unique of all the tours on offer is the underground Tunnels Tour. Those with a spirit for adventure can explore a one kilometre labyrinth of tunnels built by prisoners which run under the Prison. Equipped with hardhat, overalls, boots, headlamps and harnesses visitors are locked into the ladder system before descending 20 metres into the depths below. Skilled guides lead the trek through dry sections of the tunnels by foot, before boarding replica convict punts to explore the submerged passageways accessible only by boat.

In addition to its guided tours Fremantle Prison also features exhibitions in the Prison Gallery, interpretive Visitor Centres and an award winning Gift Shop.

You can find more information on this heritage jewel by visiting www.fremantleprison.com.au

Whales are coast to the Perth and Fremantle coast

Whale sharks are the biggest fish in the sea. 

Being a gentle giant, it poses absolutely no harm to humans. Hence, it will be the only shark type that will tolerate close encounters like swimming aside from them. 

Swim Close to a Giant

The feeling when you are swimming close with a Goliath-like whale shark will be exhilarating. It will be an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.

They like Temperate Climates

Whale sharks are attracted to places where food is abundant, and they prefer waters with a temperate climate. 

Busy season March to August.

 Exmouth is an ideal region satisfying all these requirements; about 4000 whale sharks congregate in the area surrounding Exmouth, spanning the Ningaloo Reef from March to August. As whale sharks are a popular attraction in Exmouth, eight dive operators offer whale shark tours.

Perth to Exmouth whale shark tour
Snorkelers and scuba divers seek out these giants to swim beside them since they are so peaceful. Due to concerns from commercial fishing, the whale shark is designated as “Vulnerable” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List of Threatened Species, but the advent of whale-shark tourism may cause some communities to view them as more valuable alive.

What to expect in a whale shark tour

You will go to the spots where whale sharks are in a spacious boat outfitted with modern equipment. In finding whale sharks in the vast ocean, spotter planes help find places where whale sharks are swimming quickly and communicate it with the boat. 

Hence, the process of finding Whale sharks may quite quick.

Precautions that you must take

It is strictly forbidden to touch any animal, how calm and docile it may seem. It would be best if you kept a distance of at least 3 m from the whale shark at all times and at least a distance of 4 m from its tail. It is to the safety of the animal as well as the swimmer.

You will see other marine life on your tour.

In swimming with a whale shark, you will get the chance to see other animals like humpback whales, dolphins, reef sharks, manta rays, eagle rays, dugongs, turtles, and various fish. Hence, there will be a real possibility of them approaching you. As all these animals are wild creatures, you must be alert to your surroundings all the time.
