Historic Fremantle Colonial Cottages offer 3 nights stay for the price of 2


The Fremantle Prison YHA has already given you the opportunity of sleeping in a cell, if that’s what you are looking forward to doing while visiting Western Australia. If living in a converted 1850s prison building triggers your excitement, you might be well interested in staying inside the colonial cottages of the guards!

Fremantle Colonial Cottages is the latest tourism accommodation in Western Australia. The property is a 19th century jail complex and listed as a part of World Heritage.

The guards’ cottages are located just outside the jail walls. Three cottages are there that are ideal for families and group accommodation. Each of the cottages is lovely and has exclusive backstory that dates back to 1857.

Each cottage has two bedrooms, a kitchen, lounge room, dining room, private bathroom, and a backyard patio and front veranda for relaxing. Total 6 people can live in a single cottage as the 2 bedrooms have double and bunk bed systems.

Fremantle Prison was constructed in 1829 and closed its operations in 1991. It now has been transformed into a tourist spot where tourists can enjoy a variety of tours by day and by night. The property is just a few minutes’ walk from the city. So, when you are not relaxing inside the cottage compound, take a walk across the vibrant port city and enjoy its colourful markets, nightlife, and cafes.
