Perth Diary: Fremantle Prison

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterGoogle+Pin on PinterestEmail to someone

I think not all travel stories are meant to be shared, or maybe it’s me who don’t have the capacity to share some of the things I experienced during my travels. At least that’s how I felt when I wrote about my visit to Fremantle prison while in Perth a couple weekends ago. I have yet to reach half of the travel notebook page before I stopped myself from the few attempts of trying to write about it. I didn’t like to recall it. The vibe was too negative; even for me, someone who truly enjoys crime dramas and horror stories, both in book and TV, both fiction and nonfiction.

But I managed to snap some pictures in there. I am sharing it here because maybe it would be interesting for some of you. Maybe even inspire you to visit the Fremantle prison.

Spoiler alert: It’s nothing like the prison in the Orange Is The New Black.

Fremantle Prison

Welcome to Fremantle prison. Once you are inside, you have been stripped off of your freedom.

Fremantle Prisoners

I managed to find the only cute thing in the Fremantle prison: the prisoners fridge magnet in the gift shop. Yep, the prison has a gift shop and excluding this fridge magnet, everything else looked depressing. I contemplated bringing one back home, but I was unsure how would Fafa feel about me smuggling a prisoner home.

I could only describe my experience in Fremantle prison as eerie at the best, especially at the end of the tour when they took us to the death chamber. The feeling I got while in there was similar to how I felt when in Chu Chi tunnel in Vietnam. Evidently, I didn’t write much about it too.

To think I almost stayed in the YHA hostel located in the Fremantle prison.. Gah!! NO FREAKING WAY! I wouldn’t last more than a few hours there. Still, if you are pretty strong hearted, I would recommend you to visit the Fremantle prison. It’s once in a lifetime experience, you guys! Then again, not all things are worth to be experienced..

Tell me, what’s the freakiest thing you have experienced during your travels?

    The freakiest thing I ever experienced during my travels was during my visit to Israel! There were some places we traveled that were scary, dangerous, and super close to Syria. Not something I want to experience again.
