Have your cameras at the ready as your journey takes you past Fremantle Prison (built in 1855 to house imperial convicts, colonial prisoners, enemy aliens, prisoners of war and maximum-security detainees) and the Round House, the oldest building in Western Australia which also served as a prison. Travel along the Esplanade and Beach Road, passing Victoria Quay and the Pensioner Forces Cottages.
