My partner and I recently completed the Inspirations Outdoors, Best of Tasmania Hiking Tour (9-18Feb2018). It was run over 10 days and covered 90kms in some of the state’s most picturesque locations. We and the others on the tour (9 in total) were conveniently picked...MoreWow! Thanks Mars, We are truly humbled by your kind words, and the time you took to write this review.

The Escape Hunt Experience Perth

The Escape Hunt Experience is a fantastic interactive attraction in Fremantle - a luxurious themed adventure set 100 years ago where you and your team play the part of a famous detective solving the greatest murder mystery in the heart of Fremantle. You need to use all your skills as a team to find clues and solve puzzles against the clock - only then can you escape!

Our group of 5 played Poisoning in the Cafe and got out with 15 minutes to spare. The only negative was one of the clues was in a trick box that none of us could open and we needed help. Everything was really were organised...MoreThank you Kaitlyn. We are glad you had a good time and glad the puzzles suited your ability. It's hard to get a good medium between too hard/easy. See you again

Fremantle War Memorial

Reviewed By RogerLowestoft - Oulton Broad, United Kingdom

This memorial is dedicated to those who served and lost thier lives fighting in wars that involved service personnel from Australia. It is well looked after and looks over Freemantle and further out to sea. You can walk from the town up the hill to the top which gives you great panoramic views, or catch a bus which passes close by to the memorial.

Fremantle Prison

Fremantle Prison is one of Western Australia’s premier tourist attractions and the only World Heritage listed building in the State.The Prison was built by convicts in the 1850s and was used as a place of incarceration for almost 140 years. With solitary cells and gallows Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent. Fremantle Prison now holds the key to history, mystery and fun. Step inside and do time with experienced guides on a fascinating Prison Day Tour. Explore the labyrinth of tunnels 20m beneath the Prison by foot and by boat on a Tunnels Tour adventure. Feeling brave? Delve into the darker side of the Prison’s history on an eerie Torchlight Tour.

Reviewed By Jim F - Perth

We were only briefly stopping in Fremantle, but thankfully long enough to have been able to do the general prison tour (there are three options). We had had recommendations from two different UK sources so reasoned it would be a good bet. The 90-minute trip through the old prison which happily has been preserved and is now an official world heritage site was fascinating and thought-provoking. In Ian we had a thoroughly knowledgeable and personable guide who managed to get his reasonably fast-paced Delivery over in a good-humoured way. Based on our experience we would have opted for the other tours had we had enough time. Am attraction with a difference!

North Dog Beach

Reviewed By Janine45 - Wellington

This beach is worth a visit even if you dont have a dog! The sea is clean and sand white and the bay is quite sheltered.
The beach has grass areas next to it for picnics and some trees to shelter .
It was lovely to see the dogs enjoying the glorious coast of Freemantle.

Looking for that special gift? This is the place to go. Excellent art and jewellery and the service is excellent. Very helpful when my wife lost an earring. They turned the remaining one into a lovely necklace and I've just purchased a new pair for an upcoming birthday. A great South Terrce browse.
