FREMANTLE Prison has again been named one of Australia’s top 10 tourist sites.

The prison, as well as the State War Memorial in Kings Park, were the only two Perth places named in the TripAdvisor 2016 Travellers Choice Awards list.

Heritage minister Albert Jacob said Fremantle Prison came in at number seven.

“This is visitor feedback at its simplest and purest form, because the top 10 landmarks are determined based on reviews submitted by travellers to the TripAdvisor website over the past 12 months,” he said.

“For Fremantle Prison to rank so well is a tribute to the dedication of the prison’s staff and the wonderful work they do in offering programs and tours to engage visitors and provide them with enriching and entertaining experiences.”
