30/04/2015 : New era for Fremantle Prison in heritage move - All of Western Australia's World Heritage sites will be managed under one portfolio from July 1, 2015, with the transfer of Fremantle Prison management from the Department of Finance to the State Heritage Office. Heritage Minister Albert Jacob and Finance Minister Bill Marmion said this would align the prison with the State's globally recognised sites of Ningaloo Coast, Shark Bay and Purnululu National Park. "The Department of Finance has overseen innovations to improve the experience for the thousands of visitors who come through the prison gates each year and I am confident this unique site will continue to attract worldwide attention," Mr Marmion said.
